Plasma mobile email client
#1
So I recently wandered over to Manjaro Plasma Mobile from Mobian Phosh, and Plasma seems to be working quite well. All the basics are there -- except, unless I'm missing something -- an email client.

Mobian has Geary; is there anything that someone can recommend for my Plasma pleasure?

Thanks in advance!

I saw some upstream chatter about porting Kube over to Plasma Mobile (but imo it's definitely not usable in its current state with the touchscreen - needs a mouse).

I personally still use geary-mobile on Plasma Mobile 

Code:
sudo pacman -S geary-mobile

With geary, once you set up an email account, you might experience the app displaying a Gtk error dialog and then crashing at startup (the error quickly disappears). It's most likely complaining about being unable to open the keyring because gnome-keyring-daemon isn't started by KDE. To fix this, start gnome-keyring-daemon at the console (trigger it with startup scripts, as you desire):

Code:
gnome-keyring-daemon -r -d

That's what I thought when I saw the KDE bug about it; unfortunately it looks like out of those three listed (Dekko, Kube and Kirigami), only Kube is available and it doesn't seem scale (or even work) all too well. If anyone manages to get good results out of it, let us know.

Are you talking about this Dekko?

https://gitlab.com/dekkoproject/dekko (oops, sorry, just now read your link, and indeed we're talking about the same software)

I think the original Dekko is no longer being developed. I used its fork/rewrite Dekko2 on Ubuntu Touch for about a year until last September. It is still not at feature parity with the original Dekko, and missing a crucial functionality to make it a truly usable email client: integration with contacts. There is no contact book in Dekko2, and it only partially integrate with the system's contacts. Sending an email to a single contact from the Contacts app works, but if you want to add other recipients to the email, you have to enter them manually or laboriously copy from the Contacts app and paste in Dekko2.

To me it seems that the Kube project has been unfortunately abandoned, before kube became ready for use, even on the desktop. When you look at the repository statistics, you see that any significant level of activity ends by February 2021. And even before that, activity has been rather low from October 2018 on.

There has been started a project Pelikan, but it seems that it is also stalled... Sad

I'm using Geary too on both Phosh and Plamo (and i3 counting my desktop and laptop).
I tried Claws before, which performance wise works much better, but doesn't scale at all.

I'd stay away from almost all the Kirigami apps for now, simply because they're just new and not ready yet for daily use.
And KDE has this strange habit of releasing almost entirely not functional software at first, and then take a few months or years (depending on the scale of course) to turn them into AAA premium grade software, but available for free.
