Bug Description

I did a fresh install of the daily image (downloaded 3/25/2014). I've been updating/rebooting to the latest bits. I didn't attempt to migrate anything from my 13.10 installation - no artifacts from my previous kde.

I start up knotes (alt-f2 knotes) and the icon shows up in the panel. Right click on the panel icon, select "New Note" and nothing happens. Attempting to use New From Clipboard also doesn't do anything.

Is there a chance this will be fixed for the 14.04 release?

Resolved with the latest update (4/11/2014). With the latest updates knotes asked if I wanted to show the hidden notes and let me unhide them -- all the notes I'd tried to create were now there.

Please mark as resolved - thanks!

If you right click on the knotes icon and select "Show All Notes" do all the ones you've created appear?

If I right click, it shows nothing, I have fresh install, I have no notes, but "New Notes" does nothing

I opened in Konsole, when I start it, it shows this messages, it seems not related but here they are:

I don't know how important is bool DBusMenuExporterDBus::AboutToShow(int)

but when I click on "New Note" it just prompts this message:
 Error during fetch

I don't what it fetches, but when I activated akonadi; before that I couldn't create a note; I had about 30 minutes or more with a process called "akonadi_baloo_indexer" hogging my CPU at 100% and warming it at 93 degrees celsius, a lot of indexing just for a simple message "Error during fetch".
