Slackware64 -current KJots not responding
I've had an issue with KJots not responding at all in a Slackware64 -current installation (from an iso dated 21.08.2012).
I click 'New Book' in KJots and nothing happens. There are no books listed at all on opening and I can't seem to create one. This happens from within Kontact as well as opening KJots as a standalone.
Googling led me to a bug listed here
See the last post by Rod J.
Basically you need to open 'Akonadi Configuration' (this is in System Settings > Personal Information or type Akonadi in to the KDE Menu search box) click on 'Local Notes' and 'Modify' and you will see there is an extra '/' between share and notes. Delete this down to just one OK it and then restart Kontact or KJots and all should be well - you don't have to reboot the system, I'm sure he doesn't mean that anyway.
You should now have full functionality with 'Local Notes' and 'Notes' already listed as books.
I realize your post is 9 months old, Robert, but I want to thank you for it. It solved the kjots problem I encountered upon upgrading from 13.37 to 14.0.
The Kjots notes repository storage method and location changed with the new version of KDE that shipped in 14.0. When I first opened Kjots after the upgrade, all my notes were missing. By searching the web, I found suggestions to open a terminal, navigate to ~./kde/share/apps/kjots and run kjotsmigrator --interactive to convert the old style kjots books to the new local notes style. But it hung without ever completing each time I tried it. It also created a new "local notes" entry in the Akonadi configuration menu each time I ran kjotsmigrator, although I didn't realize it at first. Then I found your post and found all the 'local notes' entries in the Akonadi config menu. Each one had the double slash in the path.
I removed the extra / from the last 'local notes' entry, deleted all the redundant 'local notes' entries, then ran 'kjotsmigrator --interactive', and it completed successfully.
Thanks again for your useful post.
Thanks for your kind words, it's nice to know my post helped, as I have been myself so many times by this community.
...sorry to the mods here, 13 months to reply.
