1 Before, I beginning, I need dox, not solutions :-)
3 I'm having the devil's own time with kdepim after upgrading to 4.6.0.
5 Apart from the calendar (more on this later), everything seemed fine.
6 Several kontact restarts and several reboots later it was still fine.
7 Then suddenly kmail decided to throw away all my filters after #11 -
8 they simply get removed from kmail2rc silently and the file is
9 rewritten when kmail closes. I recreated the filters, and today it
10 chucked everything away. Twice. Seriously, I'm now getting hugely
11 pissed off. I can add the filters back in from a backup copy, but they
12 still get discarded.
14 Today, kmail hung while accessing my Exchange account over IMAP. The
15 folder list showed 100+ unread mails, but none of them were in the
16 view pane. Deleting that account and recreating it brought everything
17 back.
19 The calendar in korganizer just does not work. Period. It is empty.
20 But all the todos in it are listed in the Kontact summary view! An
21 invite is displayed as raw ical data, missing the usual Accept|Reject|
22 etc links. And the calendar is apparently read-only: right-click on a
23 time-slot gives a greyed-out context menu so I can't select "Add
24 event"
26 My pim config has come a long ways, from somewhere early in the 3-
27 series and just got updated every time. I tried a kdepim-4.6 beta a
28 while ago but that was not a happy experience so went back to 4.4, and
29 am now back at 4.6. I strongly suspect a very unhappy outdated config,
30 but the apps themselves are not helping to nail it down.
32 There's nothing in .xsession-errors that gives a clue, nothing on the
33 console with the appropriate kdebug options set, and lots of google
34 searches have not revealed any kind of config validation script.
36 If any of you fine folks can point me at a link containing useful
37 debugging techniques for kdepim, this here crotchy old sysadmin will
38 be eternally grateful. I might even DHL some cookies as a token of
39 gratitude :-)
