Disabling these things doesn't seem good enough...bits still hang 
around. I've had decent success with this:

$ sudo -i
# cd /
# for i in `find -iname '*akonadi*'`; do rm -rvf $i; done
# for i in `find -iname '*nepomuk*'`; do rm -rvf $i; done
# apt-get install libnepomukutils4

That last one is required and it will pull in libnepomukquery4a and 
libnepomuk4; without those, kdeinit will fail (that's what I observed on 
my 12.04 alpha 1 test PC, anyway). You'll also need to edit 
~/.config/Trolltech.conf and remove all lines with references to 
"akonadi" and "nepomuk."

Yes, this is truly a blunt way to get rid of something, it probably will 
cause update problems as time moves on, it might even kill your pets and 
rip a hole in space. Don't do it! Unless you're prepared to handle 
unknown consequences :)
