            Bug ID: 451998
           Summary: Akonadi Account Wizard unable to add gmail based
           Product: Akonadi
           Version: 5.19.3
          Platform: Manjaro
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Account Wizard
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: mdedetrich at gmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

So in summary I have a situation where there there is some state on my KDE
installation with either Kmail or Akonadi whereby I am unable to add my gmail
account and by add my gmail account I mean going through the gmail wizard which
when detecting `IMAP` should bring up the Google account web popup to sign into
your gmail account.

I know that this is due to my system specifically and not with my Gmail
permissions/accounts due to the fact that I have another PC where I managed to
successfully add the Gmail account without any problems.

I have also attempted as much as possible to completely wipe all configs and
state with Akonadi and Kmail , i.e.

rm -r ~/.local/share/akonadi/
rm -r ~/.config/akonadi*
rm -r ~/.config/kmail2rc
rm -r ~/.config/kmailsearchindexingrc
rm -r ~/.local/share/akonadi_migration_agent/
rm -r ~/.local/share/kmail2/

But it has no effect

1. Open KMail
2. Go to Settings -> Add Account 
3.  Put in details for a Gmail account (should detect as IMAP)

The "Find settings provider on internet" just instantly bugs out and no google
login page is observed. If you ignore this and continue through the wizard when
you try and refresh the account afterwards you get a

Resource Google Mail (mdedetrich) is broken.
Could not read the password: user rejected wallet access 

"Find settings provider on internet" should not bug out instantly but instead
take a few seconds (since this is meant to be doing something) and then at this
point a Google login page should appear asking for your Gmail settings
