As the subject still is about my KDEPIM 4.6, um, impressions, I'd like to
add that KMail is indeed running much better now. I still have the problem
that I cannot import my local mails I had in the old KMail, I see the folder
structure only, being empty. I can access the mails with mutt, so there
shouldn't be a problem. I did not yet investigate this further.
But apart from that, KMail is running very stable. It did not once show
unread mails that were not there, nor did I get those notifications (Saving
failed, server replied: A015537 BAD Invalid system flag \RECENT) any more.
Maybe because I am using disconnected IMAP again?
I swear that's all I wanted to say for the moment, to tell you that there
are some things that actually work fine :) But right then, I started having
problems again. First I noted that things became very slow. Changing mail
folders, starting applications, all this stuff. There was no process with
high CPU usage, so I have no idea what's responsible. I decided to log out,
but before that I wanted to save my session because I had made some changes.
The K menu opened, but that was all, I could not change to the
logout/shutdown category. Plasma was frozen. Still, no high CPU usage. I
used a dbus command I googled to save the session manually, then logged out
Next login, the session was okay, except for Amarok which was not started,
and a Konsole window. I wanted to start it with KRunner, but Alt-F2 does
nothing. And the K menu in the panel blurs the space where it should appear,
but that's it. Plasma hangs. Ctrl-Esc does not start the top-like process
viewer. I still can start KSnapshot with the PrtScreen key, but the save
image dialog stays empty. Load is > 8, CPU usage is around 10% only. I
killed and restarted plasma-desktop, which made my first desktop appear on
the 2nd one, all other desktops were left black without plasma.
Next login, and the same happens: The K menu opens this time, but is not
usable, and plasma hangs. I will now restore the backup I just made before I
started writing this mail, I hope the configs had not already been corrupted
