New Kmail and contact integration

Yannick Roehlly
Hi,

Since the recent KDEPIM update, I encounter these problems:

- The contact avatar (from the address-book) is no more displayed in the
  mail header.

- The completion of To/Cc/... field does not take the contact addresses from
  the address-book.

- It's no more possible to search for contact in Krunner.

I remarks that the Krunner configuration did not propose the search in
contacts.  Comparing with Archlinux, I found that I need to install
libkf5akonadisearch-plugins to make the option appear (shouldn't this
package be a dependence somewhere).  But after installing it, none of the
problem above is solved.

Did I miss something or is this a bug to report?

Cheers,

Yannick

Thank you for your feedback.

Some of this are user support issues pointing to upstream problems, I suggest
you use debian-kde mailing list for checking whether other users have the same
issues and also check with upstream bug tracker. There you usually receive
quicker feedback whether other users have similar issues, whether an issue may
be a temporary breakage due to inconsistent package versions and so on.

For me it does, but there is currently an issue with it: You need to type some
chars, then delete to the beginning of the input field and then type some
chars again. This is an upstream issue.

See at least:

[kmail2] [Bug 354400] In Kmail 5.0.2 autocompletion only shows recent email
addresses but not stored emails in Kaddressbook
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=354400

But I think there is another one.

I think this is worth a bug report. You can help by filing one.

I wonder what package should depend on it or at least recommend it, but you
can just choose one like kdepim meta package and let the Qt/KDE Debian/Kubuntu
packaging team sort this out.

Thanks,

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the answer.

I think it's another problem.  First, if I delete and type again the
completion is not done using the address book.  Also, as Kmail does not
display the sender avatar, it's like there is a missing link between kmail
and the address book.  At least, on Archlinux it works as expected and Arch
does not have any patch for kmail (so it does not seem it's an upstream
issue).  I will send a message on the Debian KDE user list to see if other
people have the problem.

I will do.

Thanks,

Yannick

Hi,

Apparently, the contact integration came back. Maybe the akonadi migration
took longer than expected.
