Thread: How do I stop reminders from Korganiser?

  1. #1

    Default How do I stop reminders from Korganiser?

    I haven't used this application for many years apart from checking that
    there's nothing in the calendar. However, I'm still getting reminders of
    events that were in the calendar years ago. I assume the zombies are
    still in the Akonadi database so how can I get rid of them?

    To-Do Lists? Or, Calendar events?

    If in To-Do, you should see them in that tab, just sort by date.

    If normal Calendar events or appointments, you could scroll back through time in the calendars in the top left area and watch for highlighted dates.

    There might be a better way, but that has been good enough for me.

    First thing I do upon new install is I usually remove all the PIM apps. Calendar on phone/thunderbird etc is usually fine for me.

    Fraser, Calendars and to-do lists have been empty for years. As I said,
    I can only assume that Akonadi has the old items and the calendars being
    empty have had no effect.

    Simon, I'll try removing PIM as that seems the logical choice. I don't
    recall trying that before which I find a tad annoying.

    This has become more of an annoyance since installing TW as it now
    occurs almost every other day whereas I only used to see the reminders
    once immediately after a new installation of Leap, say, and they'd not
    be seen again until I made a fresh installation. Darned if I know why a
    rolling release should behave differently.

    Anyway, thanks for the help, I'll let you know what happens in about a
    week if it works and sooner if it doesn't. ;-)

    Try removing the archived and active reminders from kOrganizer - Settings - Calendars. That should stop the reminders .

    Possibly "akonadictl fsck" and "akonadictl vacuum" may help to alleviate this issue.

    By the way, with akonadi Version 4.14.10-6.5.1 (Leap 42.2) something that happens always with "To-Do" -- "Activities" -- is that, if an Activity is completed before the "complete-by" date, any reminders of the style "remind x days before the 'complete-by' date" still pop up, despite the Activity being completed . . .
