Question [SOLVED] Akonadi/QT QMySQL Help!!


Hi All,

I am using Archlinux. I downloaded and installed Xorg and KDE 4.2 manually.

Now every time I start my session in KDE the damn Akonadi server starts up(God knows why), I tried to disable it but couldnt figure out how.

Anyways whenever it started it gave error that the driver 'Qt QMySQL' not found and hence akonadi did not start, and its damn irritating.

So I tried AUR, pacman and the Google but could not find QMySQL driver to be downloaded - as a binary or as a source.

Now this QT thing has become quite a headache for me(even while installing amarok 2, it asks for some goddamn QT "Thingz")....so please tell me how to download and install QMySQL Driver? I tried Qt website which is all the more confusing and brain-drain for me....help as I am a Newbie to Linux. Thanks in advance.


Also there is no mysql.conf file in my user or root folder.

Hi, did you install qt using pacman, or the manual way? if using pacman, then all you need to do is install mysql "pacman -S mysql") If manually, I think it detects installed packages at compile time.
Archlinux has a unified qt build (Gentoo for instance has separated the many parts of QT into separate packages), thus making voluntary dependiencies the way to get things like qtsql...

Question

Hi, well mysql was already installed on my system by default and I can see it in pacman. Then again I have installed Qt libraries package manually as well...

Still the same thing! It just keeps saying that QMySQl driver not found.....any more pointers?

Ah the How part! glad someone asked.

I googled a lot for this problem and someone suggested that making /tmp folder to read/write access to all solves the problem so I did that. Configured the akonadi-resources carefully as there lots of options in KDE for the type of resource file to be created.

That solved the problem for me. Also I cleared all files in .akonadi folder in /home/user folder. If this does not help you then all I can point you is to read /var/log files for Xorg,KDM etc. Hope this helps for anyone who is facing the similar problem
