Re: Mint 18.2 KDE never shuts down properly and freezes frequently

I just put 18.3 KDE on a newly acquired used Lenovo Thinkcentre desktop and had the same issue - could not shut down. What worked for me was to go into BIOS>Power Setting and Disable "Wake on LAN Settings" My theory is that this Lenovo was on a corporate network and therefore "Wake on LAN Settings" ...

Re: Helps about upgrade Kernel Mint 17.3 for Spectre and Meltdown

Upgraded my 17.3 KDE to kernel 4.4.0-109 without any problems so far. Everything seems to work fine. Also, my Firefox is now on 57.0.4 so I feel a little more secure overall. Used Timeshift for the first time before the kernel upgrade - congrats to the team, great application. Could not be easier to...

Re: (Solved) Purge/ and Reinstall Kontact

I am marking this one Solved. I am back on my main desktop machine and did a fresh 17.3 KDE install. After turning on akonadictl and creating the mysql-files folder I have a working Kontact system. This duplicates my success on my (off-site) laptop which also had a fresh install. The only explanatio...

Re: Purge/ and Reinstall Kontact

Your response is appreciated. I don't have internet for the apt-get commands you suggest so a reload is the way forward. This will be a few days now.
Thank you again

Re: Experiences with Kontact in KDE

Joemahma, I cannot duplicate your Kmail crash when searching. Using either Quick Search with CTRL H or Find with Edit>Find Messages both work OK for me. I checked my recent updates and sure enough on October 25 there were two mysql updates which caused my original problem. Is your Akonadi running? I...

DeMus, that KDE Forum post is the one that I used too. https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=135957 This is all way above my pay grade. After a restart today, the /var/lib/mysql-files folder is still there and Kontact works very well. Perhaps others can explain why my system needs it and your ...

Re: Experiences with Kontact in KDE

Mint 17.3 KDE 64 bit like in my signature and Kmail version is 4.14.2. I am definitely in no rush to upgrade to Mint 18 KDE.
This is just my situation; I think there are some happy Kmail users out there.
