Well, I've solved part of my problem. Following a suggestion from forums.kde.org, I removed my entire akonadi configuration by deleting the following:



After rebooting I can now save new addresses and edit old ones in the kontact address book. Unfortunately, whenever I do that the fressbusyurls file is still created in ~/.kde/share/apps/korganizer

So it seems that the bug reported here (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305711) remains unfixed in wheezy.


Another person who had this problem posted a solution here:


But his solution isn't entirely clear to me. It seems he's suggesting to edit ~/.local/share/contacts and remove the .vcf suffix from all the entries in the contacts directory. Has anyone else tried that? Would doing so create other problems with the address book?
