    KMail doen't startup fully.

    Installed system : Knoppix 7.4.0

    Dear Forum Member,

    KMail doesn't startup fully.

    Error message:
    The Akonadi personal management service is not operational.

    Details; First Error message:

    The Akonadi control process is not registered at D-Bus which typically means it was not started or encountered a fatal error during startup.

    What's wrong? How can I solve this problem?

    Thank you.

    done.

    I suggest that you load the configuration file /home/knoppix/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc in a texteditor and change
    Code:
    [QMYSQL]
    StartServer=false
    into
    Code:
    [QMYSQL]
    StartServer=true
    Save the file and exit the texteditor.
    Issue the command
    Code:
    kmail
    in an LXTerminal and wait until kmail runs properly or exits with an error message.

    Tell us if that resolved the issue.
