    Default Korganizer calendar lost all entries, won't accept new events

    About 50 meeting invitations in KOrganizer (which was all entries) disappeared after a recent on-line update of oS 13.2 (one that required a reboot). Have forced a new installation (of Korganizer 4.14.6-16.2) but the problem persists. Anybody else notice this?
    I read in another post that 13.2 won't remember a Wi-Fi passphrase, which is true on my machine as well. Are these related problems?

    KOrganizer works fine here, on several systems.
    Is your calendar enabled in KOrganizer?

    Such problems are seldom solved by reinstalling the software though...

    I read in another post that 13.2 won't remember a Wi-Fi passphrase, which is true on my machine as well.
    Works fine here too. Have you tried to enter the password in the connection editor directly?
    Is KWallet enabled and working?
    Do you really have to enter the WiFi password, or is KWallet asking you for the wallet password?

    But you could enable "All users may connect to this network" in the connection settings to workaround this.

    Are these related problems?
    What kind of calendar do you have?
    For a standard local one, you don't need a password or KWallet. So I don't see how this would be related.

    Great feature, that ability to activate only certain groups. Thanks for pointing it out--everything is restored. Guess I should have RTFM.

    The connection between Korganizer and Wi-Fi I thought of as the computer losing track of information normally saved, perhaps through corruption of a config file that no longer pointed to a directory, etc.

    It is the network manager asking for the p/w; don't us Kwallet.

    Thanks again.

    But the network manager uses KWallet.
    If you have it disabled, the password cannot be stored.

    Again, you can enable "All users may connect to this network" in the connection editor, the password will be stored globally in /etc/NetworkManager/ then, and KWallet is not used.

    Another "feature" created "for your convenience" that I didn't notice when reading the release notes for 13.2. Earlier it seems network manager saved the p/w without needing Kwallet (which I have never used).
    Again, Thanks for pointing out the 'allow all users' checkbox.

    The old networkmanagement plasmoid used kwallet by default, but allowed to store the password as plain text in the config file.
    This option has been removed in the "new" plasma-nm (which was already included in 13.1, but not installed by default).

    If you miss that from the Release Notes, file a bug report. But you cannot put every single change in KDE or GNOME (or any other desktop or application) into the Release Notes...

    But the 'allow all users' feature does exist since years, it was called "System connection" in earlier NetworkManager versions, but renamed in 13.1 (the old KDE applet still called it "system connections" in 13.1 though).
