I renamed every running evolution file to disabled suffix:

# ls  -l evolution-*disabled
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  10392 Feb 15 01:38 evolution-addressbook-factory.disabled
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  79952 Feb 15 09:44 evolution-alarm-notify.disabled
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  10392 Feb 15 01:38 evolution-calendar-factory.disabled
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  14536 Feb 15 01:38 evolution-calendar-factory-subprocess.disabled
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 101000 Feb 15 01:38 evolution-source-registry.disabled

Also I changed my default MUA in gnome-control-center and I ran the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.office.calendar exec icedove


icedove is thunderbird uder Debian OS.

But my question:

Does thunderbird need to running some evolution commands?

No: thunrerbird and evolution are two separate projects/softwares/...

You may very well purge evolution from your system.

  • Unfortunately, gnome package depends on evolution. Feb 17, 2017 at 19:43
  • Sorry to ear that. Using XFCE here: it is not.

    @PersianGulf: I'm not a Debian user, but according to wiki.debian.org/Gnome#Options you may try installing the gnome-core package instead of gnome. The former doesn't depend on evolution while the latter does.

  • @FrancescoTurco : gnome-core depends on gnome Feb 19, 2017 at 22:24
  • @PersianGulf: As far as I can see it's the opposite: gnome depends on gnome-core. But I'm not a Debian user, so I may have an incorrect understanding of things...
