I'm using openSUSE 42.1 with Plasma 5, and the PIM application Kontact has stopped to work: suddenly it won't start when launched, (I mean that one day it worked, the subsequent stopped to do it).

I've tried to run it from a console, this is the output:

json_parser - syntax error found,  forcing abort, Line 1 Column 0 
kontact(7039)/kdeui (kdelibs): No such XML file "/home/stefano/.kde4/share/apps/kontact/default-.rc" 

The single applications that compose the full suite, when launched individually, start and work normally; if I launch Kmail, KAddressbook, Korganizer and so on I don't experience any problem, they are fully functional.

Despite being on Plasma5, I'm using the KDE4 version of the PIM suite and of all its programs; during the installation the system has automatically chosen this version, even if the repositories contain the other one.

  • Have you tried just touching home/stefano/.kde4/share/apps/kontact/default-.rc? – MariusMatutiae Mar 7 '16 at 12:05
  • Thanks, I've already solved the problem. But thank you anyway! – Sekhemty Mar 7 '16 at 17:19

I've managed to solve my problem by deleting the file ~/.kde4/share/config/kontactrc.
