From the original post:

feisty at feisty-laptop:~$ akregator
KCrash: Application 'akregator' crashing...
akregator: ERROR: Communication problem with akregator, it probably crashed.

So that wouldn't work. I simply went through the config files until I
found the one that when removed, allowed akregator to be started. I
then recovered it's contents.
