Re: disable akonadi

I had the same issue. Akondi was clobbering my system and making it utterly unusable. It is a resource MONSTER.  I wouldn't even consider running it without at least 16 gigs of ram and the way I multitask I doubt that's enough. 

I got it stopped, don't remember exactly what I did but I think I followed this

~/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc change StartServer=true to StartServer=false

Should keep it from autostarting once you disable the Akondi enabled apps from kicking off. 

I did leave Baloo running, it doesn't seem to kick off the server and all the related garbage and the default clock widgit is also running and doesn't seem to cause me any difficulty. Every time I boot which isn't often I still go in and kill a bunch of processes. 

Most of the apps I never use anyway. My phone serves as my contact manager. I switched to web based email years ago. Though I have gigs of KDE mail and mail I'd love to convert to KDE mail format that I cannot open on a KDE 5 machine for fear of starting Akondi and bringing my machine to it's knees.

use applikation which needs akonadi anymore.

How can I disable akonadi so that there is no restart at each new login?
