SSH tunnel proxy in Akonadi/Kontact/KMail
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 5, 2011
I have a SOCKS5 proxy set up through ssh -D under KDE 4.7.1, and I'm running polipo as an HTTP proxy, routing through the SSH tunnel proxy. I have the polipo port set in KDE Proxy Settings.
Chromium, Kopete, and Choqok are all respecting those settings just fine, although Kopete needs to be started with tsocks.
KMail (really Akonadi) is ignoring the settings and connecting to my IMAP server directly anyway, and I can't find any reason why. Here's what I've tried so far:
* Forcing Akonadi not to start until the proxies are in place
* Running "tsocks akonadictl start"
* Running "tsocks kontact"
* Running "tsocks kdeinit4"
Nothing seems to have any effect. Any suggestions?
BTW, this Arch guest is running in a VirtualBox machine on a RHEL host. I run wireshark on the host to see if I see un-tunneled traffic. For each of the apps mentioned above, I saw untunneled traffic until getting them properly configured. In the case of IMAP communication
Accidentally destroyed some MySQL files used by Akonadi (and thus by dependencies)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2012
I hope I posted this correctly here...I'm quite new to Linux, using Kubuntu from the first day I started my new job. Couldn't be happier, although there are some bumps in the road.
Because I needed to build a working database for my work, with actual research data (water parameters such as pH and salinity and such...), I tried using LibreOffice Base for a while, because of previous experience with MS Access. This was a mistake and a waste of time: Base does not (repeat: not) live up to any simple database expectations. Short story: I switched to MySQL, that was yesterday. I still need to learn a lot, but here goes... In order to use the MySQL Workbench, I needed to install MySQL server. I did just that, including dependencies, using Apper. Most of the apps were installed successfully, except mysql server 5.1. After a search through some fora, it was considered wise to attempt installing in a terminal (sudo apt-get install -f)... Things were indeed a bit more powerful her
Nepomuk/virtuoso & akonadi
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 2, 2011
I have upgraded to 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, and it is a huge step back. Compositing stopped working, KMail stopped working, digikam is almost unusable. Except for the problems with compositing, the driving force behind the destruction is the pair nepomuk (aka virtuoso) and akonadi.
I resolved some initial problems, but KMail complains that it does not have rights to write to my inbox. It displays an error message that always stays on top. Clicking it closes the application. I can still read e-mail, but I cannot access some folders with old e-mail. When KMail does not run, akonadi still wants to access my e-mail accounts.
When I move some photos or films to a directory controlled by digikam, they do not show any more. Moving photos and films to that directory is now the only way to enrich my repository, as digikam no longer recognizes my camera, and I have to use gphoto2 to download them. Not recognizing my camera is a separate problem, but invisibility of new ite
Akonadi blocks kmail
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 13, 2010
I did a clean install of Kubuntu 10.10 yesterday. Everything worked perfect... except kmail. Two things that are relevant:
- I kept my old /home
- I installed mysql server
When I launch kmail I see it get started, it download mails, I can click on messages, but after a few seconds I get an error popup: Akonadi Server Self-Test - Kmail and it fails.
Here's the full report:
Akonadi Server Self-Test Report
Test 1: SUCCESS
Database driver found.
Details: The QtSQL driver 'QMYSQL' is required by your current Akonadi server configuration and was found on your system.
File content of '/home/dargaud/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc':
Test 2: SUCCESS
Akonadi is not running as root
Details: Akonadi is not running as a root/a

now when I open the kontact application I get this errro:

How do I use Strigi? Or Akonadi? Or Nepomuk?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 7, 2011
Would appreciate more information on the following KDE4 features (I happen to use Kubuntu):
What the heck is Nepomuk / Akonadi / Strigi, and how does it affect me as a user? Every explanation I've found has been too abstract to relate to.
As far as I can tell, "Akonadi" = "You must have MySQL installed or else KDE is completely unusable. Oops, sorry if you already had a running MySQL system set up --we're going to take it over now."
"Strigi" = "If you pre-label all your 'family heirloom-related' files as 'family heirloom-related', then KDE will be able to identify them as 'family heirloom-related' even if the file name is a mundane-seeming 'test.txt'. Impressive, huh? Unfortunately, if you don't pre-label your files, then this feature is completely useless. Go use grep instead if you're looking for info within the files."
"Nepomuk" = "No bloody idea. What the heck is this, anyway?"
I'm being facetious, of course
Akonadi errors on Slackware64 current
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 7, 2011
Sorry in advance if I missed a thread where this was covered. I am running current and upgraded KDE to 4.6.1 using AlienBob's packages. I followed the directions and it seemed to go fine except alt-tab caused X to crash and bring me back to a console prompt. Looking on the forums this seemed to be caused by a version of mesa and what had seemed to fix it for most was upgrading that version to the one residing in testing, once I did that this fixed the alt-tab issue. I noticed when I would log out of KDE and drop to the console there would be all sorts of akonadi error messages which I am not sure what to do about. Has anyone seen these error messages (attached below) and if so what did you do about them? Thanks in advance for any help.
Digital clock for kde that does not require Akonadi
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2011
Anyone know of a digital clock that would replace the Kde digital clock widget?
The one that comes with Kde starts Akonadi and I don't want that.
[SOLVED] Akonadi and KDE PIM
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 14, 2010
Sounds like it is getting more and more like windowz... Stuff we did not use before now forced down our throat...
I am kidding, but its kinda true...
I am referring to Akonadi... For the last 3 years, I never used such a thing and was using Kontact (Kmail, Contacts and Akregator) with ease but now I am "forced" to use Akonadi and I cant even use it because it generates tons of errors and does not even start. Result: I cant access my address book or use Kontact like I used to do.
So basically, I am searching for a way to disable/uninstall/destroy/disintegrate akonadi. I dont want and I dont see why I would have to use any kind of database servers (such as MySQL or ProgreSQL) and misc server things like akonadi JUST to retrieve/store basic info in a single file (contacts or whatever requires akonadi).
Any ways to do that? Will I have to migrate to a third party PIM solution (Thunderbird/Lightning.. Evolution, ...) ??
I have Slackware-current and use KDE 4.4.
