Last week I got a new hard drive because my old one died. I reinstalled solydk_9_64_201902.iso to /dev/sdb. This is on a 64-bit AMD CPU.
When I tried to run kalarm from the K icon, nothing appeared.
However, a quick Konsole check revealed the process to be running in the background:
Code: Select all
user@solydxk1:~/linux$ ps -A | grep alarm 2294 ? 00:00:00 kalarm
A gray Kalarm viewport appeared displaying the message,
"The Akonadi personal information management service is not operational.",
with a Details.... button.
However nothing appeared when I clicked the button.
I have no idea what this message means. I just know that in the past I used kalarm
on other linux OS's (but not in solydk jessie).
Can this be fixed? Does anybody know another application that would do the
same thing as Kalarm (sound an alarm and display a text message on a pre-specified
date and time when the OS discovers that the computer's current date and time
is equal to or greater than the date/time of an alarm that had been specified beforehand
in Kalarm) ? Or a bash script? I don't know how to make the alarm sound in BASH.
Everything else in solydK seems to be working fine. BTW, kalarm did not work for
me in my previous solydK jessie OS either.
