Evolution 3.4.4. Won't import PST. file type is greyed out.
I checked the plug-ins and I have the "outlook pst import" plug in enabled.
What do I do now? I'm stuck at this point.
Nothing is ever easy is it?

Thank you for that info. Any idea which folder I need to make that permission change on?

No, since I am not a user of Evolution. (hidden files begin with a dot, so use the command ls -al -- good luck!). I use webmail, myself.
I did see some documentation on Bugs and such you may want to check out. Debian is great for documentation!

I checked permissions on my evolution folder /home/jgross/.local/share/evolution, and found I'm the owner of the folder, sub folder, and files, with Create and delete permissions. This should be enough to do the deed of conversion. It's still not letting me pick file type in order to continue the import. Now I'm thinking that the aility to convert a PST file is not somehow "turned on" even though it says I have the plug-in. I guess I'll figure it out eventually.

Welp... it's the file size. The PST file is 3GB... I tried it with another pst file that's only 906 megs and it works fine. So now I'll have to figure out a way of parsing out the crap I really don't need. Thanks for al the recommendations. We were doing everything right... Seems anything over 2GB for a PST is terribly unstable. Nice.
