mrfishes: evolution issue?

using ximian evolution 1.4.5, which may be a bit out of date, but it's a lab machine, so i can't do anything about that. i'm trying to add a signature script. it keeps telling me "You must specify a valid script name" and then closing the window without saying what is invalid or what would be a valid script name.

anyone know what the hell i'm doing wrong? i've already got one called "Random", I'm trying things like "Random2", "Unnamed", and other assorted short alphabetic and alphanumeric strings. The "documentation" on the gnome website doesn't say much of anything.

Ok, this may sound stupid, but it is a long time since I played with Evolution, so...

There is a script (shell script, executable perl/python script, etc) with the name you used? It is on PATH?

the dialog takes two values, a filename of the script (fully resolved) and a name to display in the select menu.

i've been assuming that it was referring to the display name as invalid. hm.

the file exists. it's not a hidden file, though that shouldn't matter either.
