Bug ID: 416287
Summary: It's not possible to add an existing maildir, the
wrong path is used
Platform: Gentoo Packages
Component: Maildir Resource
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: tobias.leupold at gmx.de
Target Milestone: ---
I recently switched to a new machine and thus tried to create a new "clean"
home directory and also KMail profile. I copied over all my existing local
maildirs (that have been created usign KMail, same version, same state of
Gentoo), but it wasn't possible to add them.
Adding a maildir resource pointing to the existing data just adds an empty
entry "akonadi_maildir_resource_1". The data of the actual maildir is not
shown. The directory ~/.local/share/akonadi_maildir_resource_1 is created. If I
create some subfolder via KMail, it's added to that path. Still, editing the
resource shows the actual path (~/.local/share/archive-mail in my case).
Setting it again to the (already displayed) correct path doesn't help.
Copying my whole home directory including all config files (whatever the whole
akonadi/kmail thing may need, I also didn't manage to find out which very files
those are) restored the original state.
This can easily produced using a new user with an empty home directory. Happens
every time. Just try to add an existing (Akonadi/KMail-created) maildir to a
I have kde-apps/akonadi-19.08.3 and kde-apps/kmail-19.08.3 installed.
This is really major breakage! I would glady help to debug this.
