KMail not working

Postby mintlover62 on Fri Apr 10, 2009 7:37 pm

Hello,

I am running the Felicia KDE stable, and I am very impressed with it, especially with Flash Player working in both Konqueror and Firefox.

Unfortunately, it seems that KMail still doesn't work. If I install it, it claims to have a problem with libkmailprivate.so.4, which is a link to libkmailprivate.so.4.1.0.

Does anybody know how to correct this problem?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The PPA repos don't seem to have the KMail package, but they have Kontact, so I'm trying to run KMail 4.1.0 inside Kontact 4.2.2. That doesn't work.

However, the Ubuntu Packages website has just about every version of KMail in existence, I just have to find the right .deb, along with all its dependencies.

I'll post back and later once I find out if it works.

After a few hours of figuring out the dependencies and downloading them, I installed the following packages from the Ubuntu Packages website:

akonadi-kde
akonadi-server
kmail (4.2.0)
libdbd-mysql-perl
libdbi-perl
libkdepim4
libmaildir4
libnet-daemon-perl
libplrpc-perl
mysql-client
mysql-client-5.0
mysql-server-5.0

Finally, I got KMail running properly, it checks my gmail account perfectly. The problem is when I run it.

You see, whenever I run KMail or Kontact, it needs to take several seconds to start the Akonadi server. Then, it takes almost a minute for KResource Migration Tool to migrate something I never even created to the "compatibility bridge." It fails, then starts Kontact.

Having Kontact take a minute to load is unacceptable for me. Is there any way to stop it from trying to migrate something every time I run it?

Once this is resolved, I will stop running it in VirtualBox and put it on my MacBook :D

Aha, it seems that I simply need to delete the Default Address book from Kontact.

This is now the perfect distribution for me! Thank you, Boo and the team!

Now onto my MacBook it goes :D
