Check the numeric UID of the folder mentioned in the log. Chown them to
your user if necessary. Then restart akonadi.
Or create a folderr and edit ~/.config/akonadi/akonadiserverrc to match
your newly created folder's name. then restart akonadi

to tell the truth, it is (as aknoadi usually) totally borked.

Ranting is usually not effective, too. Instead, you could have provided the
mysql.err log.

There is no
reason why permissions should not be right etc. [...]

There are many reasons for permissions not being right. E.g., copying the
home directory from one computer to the other might end in wrong ownership.
That includes restoring backups from another installation. And you did
reinstall your system while keeping your home. Thus, mercurio might have
got another user id than before.

No one implied that akonadi changed your permissions, besides you.

Oh, with the all the given respect. If you help me to find where I can post the
mysql error, the account is still there.
Now about ranting:
I could rant since a long time. Akonadi is still in a pittifull state, if you
do not know it. After suspend to ram, or to disc, akonadi and KDE PIM (you can
choose the culprit - it produces a cache corruption that requires akonadi
console and emptying the cache to get on. Everytime. Now I can file a bug
report. But the problem of duplication, index corruption and cache, is known
for years and two generations of Akonadi now. Since priority was to make it
faster before making it safer....
There is the well known and about 7 to 8 years old "filter does not know what
account it is bound to" bug.
Currently the support of Plasma for multimonitor in i915 is broken, if you
have more than one user one often crashes silently in the background, openGL
support seems to have more than a slight problem.... Well, after all, who uses
intel based notbooks. A minority, admittedly (scnr)
Now if I would have wanted to rant, I would have said all that. Or I would
have ranted about a 100% reproducible bug: open akonadiconsole, clear the
cash and then go in the menu and say "restart akonadi". And boom. Crash boom
I am convinced if I look that up, I will also find this bug already filed. And
yes I know that for ages this console is only experimental software. Still you
need it because currently it appears that akonadi is also "experiemntal"
Now THIS was a rant. And if you feel "overwhelmed" or "personally touched" by
this very recuced amount of critizism (while I received only half a year ago
about 10 bugs I reported closed for version 4 because "not longer supported" -
while they where open up to 6(!) years), and some of them still stay in the
current version, then this is more a case of psycological coaching, isn't it?
Note that if I would not support Linux or the idea behind it, if I would not
endorse OSS software I would not use it. Still if a justified notice of
something being really borked is taken as "rant" than we have a problem IMO.

So if you wish to find out about what happens when one is saving /home (as I
hope 100 % of users do when reinstalling the system - as long as they do not
use it just for beta-testing without meaning) go ahead. Because as the story
goes, it would be nice to know. In the net I did find stuff about version 4 ...
and even this was partial. Since many users will be forced to change from PIM4
to PIM5 it will be probably helpfull to a lot of people, I am afraid. (Was
this "I am afraid" a rant too?).

Auch ein ein wenig "erschöpfter" Gruß.
Kind regards.
