Description Robert 2007-03-09 19:51:15 UTC
Version:           3.5.6 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (edgy) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu1~edgy1)
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.17-11-generic

When I open .ics calendar file, the only thing that happens is Korganizer opens and shows me my to do list.
 korganizer --import
 korganizer --merge  Are the only choices so far.

There is no way it will work if I will jus click on the .ics file. This is very annoying, I add events data often to my calendar from web - Firefox and doing download and import all the time is no good. 

Modifying the file associations for *.ics files in Konqueror does not help either.

So far I use Firefox and I made it so that for ics file type it would launch korganizer, but it only works if Kontact is closed, then it launches korganizer and asks me if I want to add or merge, but if Kontact is already running, it only opens up my korganizer to do list and does not add the event.

This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?

If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of kontact (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.08 or later), it gets closed in about three months.

Just as announced in my last comment, I close this bug. If you encounter it again in a recent version (at least 5.0 aka 15.08), please open a new one unless it already exists. Thank you for all your input.
