Don't worry. I understand your frustration.
If you have a bit of time and are curious, go back and look at my posts
around the time of kde 4.2.5, which is when I switched to kde4 (because
they were dropping support for kde3 when kde4 clearly wasn't a properly
working replacement yet, but they were pretty much forcing people to
switch anyway, due to the dropped kde3 support, even after very publicly
promising to support it as long as there were users), and you'll see my
Or to a lessor degree, check out my posts on kmail and akonadi during the
kdepim 4.6.0 and 4.6.1 era.
But ultimately, I decided it was my MAIL they were playing games with
now, and I had had enough. Thus the switch to claws-mail, and ultimately
a full drop of kdepim, akonadi, and kde's semantic-desktop stuff.
And I'm far better off for it! =:^)
So while your posts aren't exactly the most polite I've seen, I see in
them the mark of desperation and frustration I myself have gone thru.
Like me, if you didn't care about kde, you'd not be bothering to stick
around and complain, you'd simply switch to something else. I therefore
have a respect for you and the trouble you're going thru.
I don't have a lot of solutions, unless you /do/ build from source, but I
can suggest getting off of anything kdepim related, at least, probably
the sooner, the better. And I can hope that you too find a solution that
works well for you, regardless of what it happens to be. =:^)
I wonder if there's a kde4-desktop-based binary distro somewhere that
never-the-less defaults to disabling at build-time all the semantic-
desktop stuff, and running something else for mail (probably claws-mail
as it seems one of the better all-around mail clients for those coming
off kmail, too bad there's not a basic non-akonadified qt or kde based
I'd sure like to know about it if so, as I'd have surely referred a
number of folks to it to at least try, by now.
Chances are if there's not one yet, there might be one on the way.
Hopefully there's someone working on a nice, solid, non-akonadified
qt-based mail client, too.
