It's no more fresh, full of data now, I don't want to drop everything. I'd just like to get mail notifications, which is
the only thing giving me that message currently.

Where can I look for which template I'm using ?

Hi Sandro,

AFAIK, I encounter this kind of message on an invalid configuration, or when you choose a template which is not present in the directories. Which template did you use ? (Idots, verdilak, etc...) ?

did you try (since it seems to be a "fresh install") to purge the package and reinstall it ?

I think I went to the /phpgroupware alias URL and used the web interface for configuration.
IIRC I had some problems initially, so the configuration could have been left in some unstable state.
It's using postgresql as backend.

Hi Sandro,

Thanks for this report,

Can you give me hints on how you configured your phpgroupware ? (I mean, nothing, ubuntu packaging system, etc ...)

This is phpgroupware, shipped with Ubuntu Feisty.
I can reproduce by:

1) login
2) click on site admin
3) click on user accounts
4) click on 'edit' (any account)
5) click on 'add entry' (the user account has no associated address)

On click I get the message:

Template Error: set_root: is not a directory.
