Calendar doesn’t reload? Reload Akonadi!
Reminder to self: When KOrganizer refuses to reload your remote calendars, no matter how hard you press F5 (reload calendars), and when all hope is lost because even in the KDE system settings there’s no way to reload calendars, and when you’ve banged your head against the monitor often enough after reading all the good advice that suggests you should simply recreate your calendars with the same settings, then delete the old calendars: Wait. What you need to do is simple and straightforward, and if you weren’t a moron just like me, you’d have guessed it, anyway:
To do that, locate the funny little arrow up in the KDE system tray, right-click on the „Akonadi module“ button, select „configure“, then select the „configuration of the Akonadi server“ tab, and press the „restart“ button. Go back to KOrganizer, reload your calendars, and voilá — they’re updated.
This is completely intuitive and perfectly easy to understand, but I keep forgetting it.
