Thread: What on Earth is Akonadi and How can I stop it.

  1. #1

    Default What on Earth is Akonadi and How can I stop it.

    Just installed 12.1 with KDE desktop on my laptop. First observations:- KDE Desktop is getting to be more and more like windoze with programs running without being asked for and without explanation.
    I have just looked at system monitor and akonadi, whatever that is, has 28 processes opened using memory, unasked for and as far as I am concerned slowing my system down to XP standards. How may I get rid of this until I decide whether I need it or not?
    End of rant.

    when i saw i had nearly uncountable Akonadi processes hogging my frail
    little Atom, i was faced the same question some time back and google led
    me to http://ubuntuku.org/16/how-to-disable-nepomuk-akonadi/

    which (since i do not use any of the PIM features of KDE) works perfect
    for me...and, it is easily reversible..

    ymmv

    And thus a very good reason to use KDE3 instead of KDE4.

    Akonadi had been an abomination every time.

    Akonadi and friends, leaves me wondering if the KDE devs are so bent on emulating windows as to have recreated the "Vista" experience.

    I ended up having to remove the Adonandi binary from my system and then just live with the presence of a few log messages on startup.
