    Default Possible bounty and fix in KDE 3.5

    We may have found a project interested in continuing development in the KDE 3.5 branch and have offered a bounty to fix this problem so there is functioning Kontact/Zimbra interoperability. If anyone else is interested in contributing to this bounty, please contact me. Thanks - John

    The Trinity project (http://trinity.pearsoncomputing.net) accepted our bounty and has gone far beyond it in their endeavor to maintain KDE 3.5.x for those unwilling or unable to move to KDE 4.x. He has integrated a CalDAV library and written a CardDAV library from scratch. We have a small punch list but all major functionality is working with Zimbra 6.0.7. There are Ubuntu and Debian repositories.

    KDE and OpenSource: CalDAV/CardDAV/GroupDAV Support for Akonadi

    KDE 4.5 will include the resources to sync Kontact with Zimbra.

    They will be able to communication together via Carddav (which includes contacts) and Caldav (which theoretically includes calendars and tasks).

    Email is already sync-able via Imap as described in this thread.

    I'll post configuration details when they are available - probably a couple of months.

    Cheers,

    Strange. I just received an email notification that someone posted:

    but I do not see it here. In any event, the Trinity project mentioned above has implemented carddav and caldav and incorporated them into kdepim-trinity. They work quite well although there is a problem with editing recurring appointments that appears to be a Zimbra issue at this point. There are also difficulties exchanging user created contact groups. So still a small amount of clean up but most functions are working very well.

    Default KDE 4.5.3 vs. Zimbra

    I have been following this thread as I also want to use Zimbra as a mail / contacts / calendar backend for Kontact. I am on KDE 4.5.3 (Kontact 4.4.7) so should have support for GroupDAV and other DAVs as mentioned previously. I can't pretend to fully comprehend Akonadi, but this is the situation I have. There is a test user account set up on Zimbra with contact and calendar data, which has been shared out.

    Contacts
    I select "KDE Address Book (Traditional)" from a dialog box with Akonadi resources, then in the wizard I select "GroupDAV Server" and enter the Zimbra sharing URI and user credentials. I don't see the Zimbra contact data, though I don't get any authentication errors either.

    Calendar
    If when I add a calendar I select "GroupDAV Server" I can enter the Zimbra sharing URI and user credentials. I don't see the Zimbra contact data, though I don't get any authentication errors either - basically the same as with contacts.

    If I select "Calendar in Remote File" I can enter the sharing URI, though no space for user credentials. I can download items already on Zimbra, upload items created locally and data is cached locally when Zimbra is offline. However as there are no user credentials data is available to any user (though this is not a problem for me as it is just a family home LAN).

    Is this the best I can expect, or is something going wrong (or am I doing something wrong)? Zimbra is 6.0.8_GA_2661. System is running Fedora 14 (kernel 2.6.35), both Zimbra and Kontact on the same box. I realise Fedora 14 isn't supported for Zimbra but I have got the server working OK and in any case Kontact should be fine.

    Thanks for any advice,
    Andrew

    We're still using KDE3 from Trinity (Trinity Desktop Environment) so I do not know if it is the same for KDE4. We could not use the URI as given by the share. Instead, we had to change the subdirectory to /dav (I forget what the share URI is - perhaps /home, /share, or /service). Thus, the final URI was something like:

    zimbra.mycompany.com/dav/myname@mycompany.com/Contacts

    You are right about the correct URI to connect to Zimbra using WebDAV. I found this useful info on the Zimbra wiki: WebDAV - Zimbra :: Wiki. If I use the Cadaver command line utility I can see both Calendar and Contacts entries:
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# cadaver http://localhost.localdomain/dav/test/Calendar
    Authentication required for Zimbra on server `localhost.localdomain':
    Username: test
    Password: 
    dav:/dav/test/Calendar/> ls
    Listing collection `/dav/test/Calendar/': succeeded.

    dav:/dav/test/Contacts/>
    The number and timestamps of these entries correspond with the test data I entered in Zimbra. I haven't been able to open them in Cadaver (though I could probably do it if I persisted). So there is no problem connecting to Zimbra over WebDAV. However even with exactly the same URIs and user credentials, I still see nothing in Kontact. Is this a bug, or is there still some (very non-obvious) config I am getting wrong?

    I'm afraid I cannot be much help here as we are using Kontact from Trinity (KDE 3.x - Trinity Desktop Environment). That works perfectly for us except for user defined groups.

    Andy,

    This is the format that I use for KOrganizer's calendar (KDE 4.5.4)
