I'm synchronizing Lotus Notes and my iPAQ under Pylon. I'm running Evolution under KDE  (I have SuSE Desktop installed on this computer so it doesn't have Gnome) after the install of several (I mean SEVERAL) rpms and libs.

is there any other way to install Evolution under KDE?????

It was kind of tedious... :P

Evolution is a Ximian program, which depends heavily on the Gnome GTK, so lots of rpms are needed.

During the custom distro install you should have had the option to install Evolution (and all required packages) - at least that's how it was in RedHat.
Try starting up your install disk and choose "install additional programs" (don't reinstall) -
uncheck everyhing, then check Evolution and it should install all the Gnome rpms that evolution needs.


Another solution would be installing a package manager like "apt" or "RedCarpet". RedCarpet is a Ximian program (Catch 22), but most debian users love apt and I would recommend that.
Afther installing and configuring apt, "apt-get install evolution" is enough to get Evolution up and running.

some links to apt for the rpm-world (haven't tried this myself):
