Removing Akonadi Console from system - 9.10 Ubuntu

Asked by Peter on 2009-12-20

Akonadi appears to be a development tool. As I am not a developer and would like to remove it from my system and recover disc space. I have removed that part shown in the Ubuntu Software Centre, but am still left with the 'Akonadi Console' icon in the System Tools window.
Is it possible to completely remove Akonadi?

I used system -> administration -> computer janitor.
It offers to remove the akonadi console.

I ran computer janitor and got the message the following message - "You have chosen to remove 79 software packages. Removing packages that are still needed can cause errors."

Is this amount of data removal safe and expected - just to clear the icon from the 'system tools ' box ?

If ok, I will run 'do selected tasks'

In Kubuntu 9.10 Akonadi Console was part of the akonadi-kde package, which all KDE applications using Akonadi need. In Kubuntu 10.04 (and also the backported KDE 4.4 packages for Kubuntu 9.10) Akonadi Console was put in its own separate package, akonadiconsole, that is safe to remove. (And no longer installed by default.)

So in summation, you can't really do anything about it in Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE 4.3, but in Kubuntu 10.04 or Kubuntu 9.10 + KDE 4.4 you should be able to safely remove the "akonadiconsole" package.

Can you help with this problem?
