KOrganizer doesn’t show calendars

2012/02/01 at 15:17

Newer versions of KOrganizer rely on Akonadi, a system-wide KDE service that was created to annoy users. Without Akonadi running, KOrganizer won’t display any resources, that is, calendars. They’ll show up as configured in the KOrganizer settings, and also in the KDE system settings, which can be quite confusing when you try to find out why the heck KOrganizer won’t display the calendars when they’re obviously there.
I must have disabled Akonadi while disabling Nepomuk, an indexing service in KDE that was invented to annoy users even more. (I was fine with the „locate“ command. It was fast, reliable, and didn’t eat resources without end.) Anyway, enabling Akonadi once it’s disabled isn’t particularly easy, since you cannot do it from the system settings. You need to run this command (as user, not root):

akonaditray

And voilà – Akonadi is back again. Kill all KOrganizer instances (it loves to live on after terminating it with File, Quit):

ps aux | grep korg
(look at the process IDs)
kill -9 <process-id>
kill -9 <process-id>
...

Then start it again. Resources (calendars) will show up; just tick those you want to display.
