Ah-ha! Dead on again, Wolfi. lol!
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?
