I had this already in my config, so this doesn't seem to work.

But I was able to install the packages by putting:

        packageOverrides = pkgs: {
            kdenliveWrapped         = pkgs.kde4.wrapped pkgs.kde4.kdenlive;
            kdepimWrapped           = pkgs.kde4.wrapped pkgs.kde4.kdepim;
            kdepimlibsWrapped       = pkgs.kde4.wrapped pkgs.kde4.kdepimlibs;
            kdepimRuntimeWrapped    = pkgs.kde4.wrapped pkgs.kde4.kdepim_runtime;
            akonadiWrapped          = pkgs.kde4.wrapped pkgs.kde4.akonadi;

in ~/.nixpkgs/config.nix

I can not start the akonadi server by executing


in a terminal.

So, how to improve this now? I want a system wide install and I do not
want to start this server by hand, how to do this?

Are there any tweaks to specify other options for akonadi? As far as I
understand, this is a daemon server for almost everything which is
related to Kontact, KMail and KAddressbook and the like - I need it to
be _really_ fast, as if this stores my email, this will handle 1k
mails per day (mailinglists). So any speed improvements would be nice!

Anyways, thanks a lot for your help by now!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Kind regards,
