What exactly are the issues?
I have kpilot working just fine with Kontact and akonadi. I'd love to see you
get this working as I'm playing with the idea of taking over maintenance of
I'm glad to see there's a possible future for Kpilot! Are you on F12
with KDE from fedora-updates, or more recent Fedora/KDE?
A few other questions... Kontact version, kpilot version, device, would be
nice :) Also, does the device appear to sync, or does it simply not work
anymore? I've had issues with udev not naming the devices I have been testing
with /dev/pilot or even spawning any device file afaict. I've had to user the
device name "usb:" to sync it.
I can sync the device itself (Palm T3), and I used to be able to sync
the palm calendar to a akonadi resource, but that was last fall (Fedora
11 I think).
Kontact and kpilot are from current F12, that is kdepim-4.3.5-1.fc12.x86_64
nepomukserver (kdebase-runtime-4.3.5-2.fc12.x86_64) is running, and I
start akonadiserver using akonadictl (akonadi-1.2.1-2.fc12.x86_64) from
the command line, then kpilot from the command line.
I recreated the mysqldbs which solved a db issue.
In Kpilot's settings for the calendar, an akonadi error is reported,
more specifically the problem that no resource agents are found.
Consequently, a sync does not sync the calendar data at all. (This used
This is a plain F12 KDE install (fresh install with current updates, not
an F11 upgrade), no tinkering with KDE or DG paths or such. I would
think that kdepims pulls in all necessary dependencies for akonadi to
work, and I didn't find any packages which seem to contain resource
agents. Any help would be appreciated, of course.
