Bug Description

I have a Kubuntu 9.10 with KDE 4.2.2 (latest updates).
In KAddressbook I have a one (I try to create more addressbooks via akonadi, xmlrpc and other) addressbook with many contacts.
And I have a Kopete contact list. When I go to contact properties window, I see the the "Address Book Link" group and button "Change". On press I see window "Addressbook Association" with empty list.
How I can add my contacts to this list?

Run "kres-migrator". It will create a special Akonadi resource which synchronizes your Akonadi contacts to the old, pre-Akonadi style kresources that Kopete is still looking for.

There's apparently a KDE4 GUI for managing old KDE Resources used by older KDE applications, or KDE applications that haven't yet been ported to Akonadi.

Go to System Settings, and click the Advanced tab. Once there, open "KDE Resources". If you've run kres-migrator, you should have a resource called "Akonadi Compatiblity Resource" of the type "Akonadi". This is what will allow you to access your Akonadi addressbooks. If you don't see such a resource, try clicking "Add..." and select "Akonadi Address Books..." and go from there.

I hope that clears up the issue. The documentation on the problem seems poor; I only learned all this from searching my system for binaries starting with "kres", because I happen to know that KDE used to use kresources.

affects: kopete (Ubuntu) → kdenetwork (Ubuntu)

Still an issue with Lucid or Maverick?
