In the section Disabling the Akonadi subsystem, the Note at the end seems to contradict the Warning at the beginning. As I read them, the warning says that once Akonadi has been disabled, no program can use it, while the note seems to imply that programs needing Akonadi will start it, if it doesn't already run.
The warning has been reworded to (hopefully) be less confusing.
Thanks, it still sounds a bit confusing, but is clearer than the previous warning.
Perhaps that section should be retitled to something like "Preventing the Akonadi subsystem from autostarting." What do you think?
I wanted to include it because I came across a lot of people who didn't want it even autostarting on their systems. They didn't use any of the akonadi-based applications and felt that it was using up resources for no reason. Ideally, I'd want such users to find the answer on userbase (either directly or through google searches).
Hmm - the problem is that it only prevents it from autostarting at login. The next problem is that there is no clear indication, as far as I can tell, which widgets will call it. Not being able to use the clock widget will actually turn out to be really important for many people. While I like to be able to help people get what they want, I'm also aware that there may be unforeseen problems. Do you use IRC? It might help to get talking to someone on the #plasma channel to see if there is any way of knowing which widgets might be a problem. There will always be a need to end with "and maybe others..." but if we could give some indication I would feel happier. The last thing we want is to throw people out of the frying pan into the fire.
