    Default Is kOrganizer ical import broken in 42.3?

    I am running kOrganizer in 42.2, Xfce desktop, kdm display-manager and it is working okay (with just a minor issue with the reminder in the tray). It was also working the same way, okay, with LightDM.

    However, running it in 42.3, again Xfce & kdm, the import function for ics is missing, under import, only gives a text option.

    In Add Calendar, a dialogue box pops up and the only listed is "Knut - An agent for debugging purposes".

    This is the same with LightDM as the Display Manager. (Note: I do not expect Display Manager is involved, just making sure it is clear which environments I have tried it.)

    I have also tried this in a newly-created Test User, just to be certain it is not some config glitch I introduced while testing 42.3.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Perhaps, even, in an upgrade it might work okay, but in a clean install of 42.3, it does not work?

    Does anyone use kOrganizer any more?

    If so, in Leap 42.3 (and perhaps Tumbleweed), could you please check the "Add Calendar" function and the "Import" function to see if you get the option to import .ics files?

    Note that you do not need to be running the same desktop as me to confirm what I am asking, if you are running it in KDE Plasma, you could still check.

    I do, heavily . . .

    Will check the Leap 42.3 behaviour soon.

    With Leap 42.2, right-clicking on archived '.ics' files and choosing to import into KOrganizer seems to function correctly -- I must admit that, I cancelled the operation before the actual import happened -- didn't want to mess about with my functioning Calendar system . . .

    Please excuse my British English -- the Forums spell-checker seems to prefer American English . . .
    Don't know why: "Micro Focus" is (very) British . . .

    Checked with Leap 42.3 KOrganizer version 5.5.2:
    • Import via an "ICal" e-Mail worked directly (button in the e-Mail) OK.
    • Opening the "cal.ics" attachment with KOrganizer worked OK as well.
    • Opening archived '.ics' files with KOrganizer worked OK as well.

    I don't think the forum has a spell-checker.

    That's probably done by your web browser, and the language should be configurable in its settings I suppose...

    Looks like an installation problem though.
    There definitely should be an icaldir and ical (file) resource too...

    Is kdepim-runtime installed?

    Ah-ha! Dead on again, Wolfi.

    I was hoping you would look in here, as you are (at least one of, if not the) the sharpest when catching the kde misses.

    kdepim-runtime was not installed. I installed it, the ical import (and other) options now show up in the dialogue when I choose add.

    I now see "Birthdays and Anniversaries", DAV groupware resource, Google Calendars and Tasks, KAlarm Calendar file, KAlarm directory, Knut (still there), Kolab Groupware Server, Open-Xchange Groupware Server, iCal Calendar File, and iCal Calendar Folder = All the things I expect to see in there.

    Note, though, that something is still missing, as the file open dialogue box still only offers "text/calendar" and the file box does not show the iCal files. Same from the File->Import->Import Calendar dialogue.

    But, in the former "Add=>iCal Calendar File" dialogue box, if I type in the full path instead of using the GUI file finder (Folder icon on the right), a list of the iCal files in that folder pops up, I can choose the one I want, and it imports.

    Would that last missing dependancy be, say, Akonadi runtime? Or something else?

    I thought it might be some missing dependency, but wanted to run it by here for confirmation, first. I have not installed the KDE Plasma Desktop on this machine, yet, only the Xfce at time of the test installation.

    I am planning to do so (install and test Plasma desktop) in future as I continue tests, but right now am running Xfce through its paces while pulling in features and programs I like to see.

    In 42.2, that worked just find. Somehow, in 42.3 (at least in this test install), neither kOrganizer install or even adding Akonadi install pulled in all the necessary packages to run kOrganizer's Add & Import operations, so I think a dependancy link or two might have disappeared from kOrganizer at least in the meantime, but is included in a full Plasma Desktop install.

    Does that make sense? Or?

    Also, yet to be solved, when I go to Settings=>Configure Date and Time, instead of the Country/Region & Language - KDE Control Module -- which pops up fine in 42.2 -- I instead get
    Could not start control module for date and time format.
    in kOrganizer in 42.3.

    Seems like a package dependency is missing here:
    Code:
    $ rpm -e --test kdepim-runtime
    error: Failed dependencies:
            kdepim-runtime is needed by (installed) kaddressbook5-17.08.1-55.1.x86_64
            kdepim-runtime is needed by (installed) ktnef5-17.08.1-68.4.x86_64
            kdepim-runtime is needed by (installed) kmail5-17.08.1-68.4.x86_64
    No mention of korganizer...

    Apparently it got lost by the package splitups (kdepim's sources got split up upstream and we had to adjust the packaging several times).
    Of course not a problem on a default KDE installation, that's probably why it hasn't been noticed so far.

    I'll add the dependency in Factory, but for a 42.3 update you'd need to file a (openSUSE) bug report...

    Note, though, that something is still missing, as the file open dialogue box still only offers "text/calendar" and the file box does not show the iCal files. Same from the File->Import->Import Calendar dialogue.
    You should be able to change the file filter to whatever you like.

    Would that last missing dependancy be, say, Akonadi runtime? Or something else?
    Definitely not akonadi-runtime, as that is the KDE4 Akonadi.

    I need to take a look and see if I can reproduce this on my full installation.
    But TBH, I don't think this can be caused by a missing dependency.

    You'd need to install plasma5-desktop for that (and maybe kde-cli-tools5).
    But that won't help you much in XFCE anyway, as it just affects the Plasma desktop (the settings are applied when you login to Plasma).

    KOrganizer should just take the system's (or actually your user's) locale settings though. Maybe XFCE has a similar settings tool to change that.
