Would anyone from the Kubuntu team care to comment on how it is acceptable to release something so utterly broken? I've just spent the best part of a morning trying to get this stuff to work. In the end I've just given up. I'll have to live without an address book - I did get the addressbook to work by following this thread, but that had the side effect of making Kopete lose all its account settings every time I logged out. *sigh*.
