Evolution startup crash [fixed]

Main idea: I am not a Gnome user

Once uppon a time I ran evolution. I liked it. A very robust application. After I installed Arch, I only used KDE components & a few others. Nothing Gnome-dependant.

The begining:
Today I told myself: what if I try evolution again, to see how it evolved.

pacman -Sy evolution

Targets: libgnomeprint-2.6.1-1 gnome-common-2.4.0-3 libgnomecanvas-
         hicolor-icon-theme-0.5-1 gnome-icon-theme-1.2.1-1
         libgnomeprintui-2.6.1-1 orbit2-2.10.1-1 libbonobo-2.6.0-1 gconf-2.6.1-1
         gnome-mime-data-2.4.1-3 gnome-vfs- libgnome-
         libbonoboui-2.6.0-1 gnome-keyring-0.2.1-1 libgnomeui-
         libsoup-1.99.26-2 gal-1.99.11-2 gail-1.6.3-1 gtkhtml-3.0.10-2
         docbook-xsl-1.65.1-1 gtk-doc-1.2-2 linc-1.1.1-1 evolution-1.4.6-2

Well.. wow.. those are maaany dependencies but.. I removed everything not necessary once, I can do it again after...

Installing went well but...

The problems:
1. small problem: the first run gave an library error (fixed by running ldconfig)
2. THE problem: the second run it gave:

(evolution:3688): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: construct property "type" for object `ESplash' can't   be set after construction
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/home/mircea/evolution/shortcuts.xml"

(evolution:3688): libglade-WARNING **: Could not load support for `gnome': cannot open shared object fi   e: No such file or directory

(evolution:3688): libglade-WARNING **: unknown widget class 'GnomeDruid'

(evolution:3688): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid cast from `GtkLabel' to `GnomeDruid'

(evolution:3688): GnomeUI-CRITICAL **: file gnome-druid.c: line 870 (gnome_druid_set_buttons_sensitive): assertion `   NOME_IS_DRUID (druid)' failed

(evolution:3688): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:1666: signal `cancel' is invalid for instance `0x8122058'

(evolution:3688): evolution-shell-CRITICAL **: file e-shell-startup-wizard.c: line 840 (e_shell_startup_wizard_creat   ): assertion `data->start != NULL' failed

Of course, consecutive runs eliminated one or two warnings, but the assertion is still there. Running with "--no-splash" didn't help.

Any ideas? Do I need to run something first before running Gnome apps? Some config utility or something?
(don't tell me "the whole Gnome" because that's not reasonable).

Lots of thanks.

Re: Evolution startup crash [fixed]

Woaaa... magic... 10x
Kind of unbelievable, but who knows what the developers wanted. I find it rather... too strange!...

Lots of thanks, once again Xentac.

Comment on Evolution: it looks soooo goood, now I'm wondering wether's something left from KDE that I still need.


P.S. I am sure that your signature is not about me
