Set the Main view Width

Asked by Valde_91 on 2012-11-22


I'm using evolution since 5 years now and I'm very satisfied of it.

I've just changed my old Pc for a Lenovo X230 tablet and I have a little problem in setting up evolution properly. When I switch to tablet mode, the screen rotate 90° degrees to the right, so I've a maximum width 768 pixels. So I need to setup up the evolution main window to work with this maximum width. Closing the sidebar solve the problem, but is unpractical because I've multiple accounts. With the bar open is just impossible to maximize the window or to have it entirely on the screen. I've tried to reduce (even drastically) the width with gconf editor, but nothing really change when I restart evolution, it's always to large to fit the screen properly.

Is it possible to have evolution working nicely with such a limited resolution?

You may want to try that, it says the 3.4 kernel supports the GPU so the 3.7 should too. You may want to contact the author to see if s/he can advise :)

Can you help with this problem?
