Oops, sorry. I have been subscribed more than a year ago and forgot that 
completely!  Hereby I do a repost for kdepim-users.

About your suggestion, I have a backup of my complete home directory 
(including .kde, but also e.g. .local/share/akonadi if that might be 

Don't you mean the std.ics instead of std.vcf (because the latter is for 
Kaddressbook, where importing worked fine)? Looking at std.ics, it's full of my 
appointments. I have copied the file again, but it didn't solve the problem. 
It's really strange because the vCal is filled, the "Default Calendar" resource 
points towards that file, but Korganizer is still completely empty (except for 
the birthdays and some special dates). 

Thanks for your help :)
