it went missing again from my 4.7.4 - just like that! But now I have 
figured out a method to get it back. A WEIRD method but it works for me...

1. Leave Personal Contacts resource as it is
2. Use System Settings Akonadi resources to create a vcard resource 
based on a local directory - point it to the same folder as Personal 
3. In Kontact indicate that you only want to use Personal Contacts and ..
voila it works..

I have also been in the "depreciated" KDE resources and I think I tried 
to tick Personal Contacts as "standard" even though it is "read-only" there.

Can someone/anyone confirm this works in 4.8 too?
