Evolution-flatpak questions — at Initial Version

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 4.0
Component: client Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


Because Xenial-shipped Evolution is quite old, I decided to install the flatpak version of it as soon as I discovered it.

Only 4 commands to set it up

sudo apt-get install flatpak gnome-software-plugin-flatpak
flatpak --user remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/
flatpak install --user flathub org.gnome.Evolution
env GTK_MODULES="${GTK_MODULES//:unity-gtk-module/}" flatpak run org.gnome.Evolution
# ^^^ hides one of the numerous warnings

1) I have configured a mail account, and the password is stored in gnome-keyring. However, when I am opening it in an xpra session (concurrently with :0), it will always ask me for a password for said account.

It pairs that with an error message like: org.freedesktop.secrets: Timeout was reached

I am wondering:

  • If that makes any sense to you
  • If you would know what it means
  • If it's fixable
  • Or it is a "security" feature and works as-expected

2) When said password prompt comes up, I cannot raise or switch the terminal window.
There is only one alternative - minimize or remove everything else in front of it; and even then, sometimes, clicking it makes Evolution and Evolution-PasswordPrompt? to come up. At that time, I definitely cannot interact the parent gnome-terminal by mouse (I haven't tried what happens if I start another sibling gnome-terminal)

[2] is maybe related to #2604
