That did not work here with ~/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverr as in:




On initial session startup after login in with the test user and empty 
home directory Akonadi was not even started. That was when it would 
still use MariaDB. However on second startup of the session with above 
configuration file it was started immediately on session startup.

An easy way to disable Akonadi might be to move


out of the way, or probably "akonadictl", or well whatever starts 
Akonadi once a widget or applications accesses it and reboot. I do not 
know for sure, as I never bothered with disabling Akonadi. But with some 
trial and error this should be easy enough to find.

I do not know what would breakā€¦ by doing so. I bet applications and
widget would not be able to access Akonadi anymore and complain in some
way or another.
