            Bug ID: 364872
           Summary: Adblock not working because list(s) can't be saved on
           Product: akregator
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: oecetinel at posteo.net

For some reason Akregator uses kmail2's folder to save adblock lists.
Meaning at every start it shows a notification "could not download blocklist"
when infact it does but can't save them. (Maybe correct the error message here
since it is a notification?)

To be specific: The folder akregator tries to use is ".local/share/kmail2" i
found this because when I started Akregator via konsole it also complains about
being unable to open ".local/share/kmail2/adblockrules_local". 
After i created the kmail2 folder (i don't use kmail so the folder wasn't
there) Akregator created adblockrules-0 and adblockrules-1 the error message
about adblockrules_local also went away although adblockrules_local still isn't

btw the current version (5.2.2) is missing in the list.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a filter list

Actual Results:  
The ads are still there since Akregator can't save the list and doesn't use it.

Expected Results:  
Ads get filtered according to list

Maybe the blocklists should be saved in a seperate folder which is not used by
any application like e.g.:
