Description

Kubuntu (/kuː.ˈbuːn.tuː/ koo-boon-too) is an official flavour of the Ubuntu operating system which uses the KDE Plasma Desktop instead of the Unity graphical environment. As part of the Ubuntu project, Kubuntu uses the same underlying systems. Every package in Kubuntu shares the same repositories as Ubuntu, and it is released regularly on the same schedule as Ubuntu.

I would like to suggest a slight change in plan for shipping these updates based on 2 usage cases:

backports-landing is a separate ppa, so that would be the logical place.

After reading this entire thread, I'm revising my thoughts. First, patches are evil. So our thoughts and code should go upstream to KDE PIM.

Ideally this bug should be opened with the PIM team so that korg is not started by default and maybe even ask the user if they want it started on startup.

If it's decided to go the /etc/skel route ( -1 from my side ;-) ) , remember that ~/.config has mode 0700 and config files 0600. Are permission fixed later if files from /etc/skel have wrong permission?

Looks like this patch for korg is enough to prevent akonadi from starting and tying up resources. We could probably shut this down as resolved.

This is now added to KCI. There was a bug in morse which was echoing conversation back to sender, but that appears to be resolved now [1]. Hopefully this can now be uploaded to the archive and maybe tested and put into backports.

I vote for a separate PPA just for testing PIM. If it passes testing, we can put it in backports PPA.

schweingruber added a comment to T5123: Don't start akonadi at login if it is not used.

I am very much with what Philip says: we need to make sure Akonadi only starts if the user really uses PIM. I had the problem it chocked my computer despite me not running any PIM stuff, just because I once opened Kontact, then closed it again. It persistently restarts every time I start Plasma, and that should NEVER happen. Akonadi should only start if the users starts ACTIVELY a PIM application.

+1 for not adding KDE PIM by default.
An basic email client is needed still, so I propose we have a easy way to add KDEPIM, like we had for Firefox back in the day.

I would be +1 for dropping it off our seed for zesty. It should still be installable via apt / discover / muon but as Ovi mentioned it would free up resources and make the system faster. I would far rather have an opt-in solution rather than opt-out as default.
