Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: kmail
I ran "sudo apt-get install kmail" on regular Karmic (i386) with
Rosegarden as the only other KDE application installed. I ran KMail,
and set up an IMAP account for Gmail. I chose not to use the KDE
wallet(?) to store the password. I expected to be able to read my
email. Trying to collect mail give me:
Source URL is malformed.
I added a duplicate account in case I'd made a mistake, and it does the
same thing. I also see the following that I missed before?
Could not start process for imap.
I added another account for POP3 instead, same mailbox, and now I see
Could not start process pop3s.
If I choose Settings | Configure KMail there's obviously a lot of
content missing. That is, it makes no sense, and there are no options
to change. Loading a profile, setting defaults, or resetting doesn't
help this. The help button doesn't do anything.
Choosing the KMail Handbook from the Help menu gives
The file or folder help:/kmail/index.html does not exist.
and the help page shows
There is no documentation available for /kmail/index.html.
Running from the command line gives these messages at some point:
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_identity.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_accounts.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_appearance.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_composer.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_security.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kmail_config_misc.desktop not found
