http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello openSUSE users! I wrote about this issue some time ago but received no answer so I try again. I have problem with Kontact since KDE 4.3.x (now I'm using 4.4.1). In earlier version (KDE 3) I had summary with calendar, holidays, notes and mail notifications in left column of summary and RSS (Akregator) channels in right column. I can't do the same thing with new Kontact - left column takes all summary window I don't have Akregator plugin in Summary configuration but Akregator is of course installed: stalker@bgbackup:~> rpm -qa | grep akregator akregator-4.4.1-203.5.x86_64 stalker@bgbackup:~> rpm -qa | grep kontact kontact-debuginfo-4.4.1-203.5.x86_64 kontact-4.4.1-203.5.x86_64 stalker@bgbackup:~> ls -al /usr/lib64/kde4/ | grep akregator -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 43848 03-09 04:54 akregator_config_advanced.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 35520 03-09 04:54 akregator_config_appearance.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 35536 03-09 04:54 akregator_config_archive.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 35456 03-09 04:54 akregator_config_browser.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 31328 03-09 04:54 akregator_config_general.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52496 03-09 04:32 akregatorkonqfeedicon.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 236488 03-09 04:54 akregator_mk4storage_plugin.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1077960 03-09 04:54 akregatorpart.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 39664 03-09 04:54 kontact_akregatorplugin.so I looked into old Kontact summary configuration file: stalker@bgbackup:~> cat /home/stalker/.kde/share/config/kontact_summaryrc ActiveSummaries=kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_todoplugin,kontact_newstickerplugin,kontact_knotesplugin,kontact_weatherplugin LeftColumnSummaries=kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_weatherplugin,kontact_knotesplugin RightColumnSummaries=kontact_newstickerplugin Now I looked into new configuration: stalker@bgbackup:~> cat /home/stalker/.kde4/share/config/kontact_summaryrc ActiveSummaries=kontact_todoplugin,kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_knotesplugin,kontact_akregatorplugin LeftColumnSummaries=kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_todoplugin,kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_knotesplugin RightColumnSummaries= Sooo... kontact_newstickerplugin has changed name to kontact_akregatorplugin, as I see in listing from /usr/lib64/kde4. I closed Kontact and manually added kontact_akregatorplugin to configuration file. Now it looks like this one: ActiveSummaries=kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_todoplugin,kontact_akregatorplugin,kontact_knotesplugin,kontact_weatherplugin LeftColumnSummaries=kontact_kmailplugin,kontact_todoplugin,kontact_specialdatesplugin,kontact_knotesplugin RightColumnSummaries=kontact_akregatorplugin I opened Kontact again and... no Akregator channels in right column. I opened configuration file once again and saw that kontact_akregatorplugin dissapeared - now the last line in this file looks like this: RightColumnSummaries= Summary configuration window looks like on attached snapshot: Can you please explain it to me and help me to tame new Kontact?
