I installed KAddressBook (on Ubuntu 8.10) and now I can't open it - get the error message:
"Application: KAddressBook (kaddressbook), signal SIGSEGV

Thread 1 (Thread 0xb4a3c6c0 (LWP 7323)):
[KCrash Handler]
#5 0xb757f44e in KABC::StdAddressBook::Private::init () from /usr/lib/libkabc.so.4
#6 0xb7580822 in KABC::StdAddressBook::self () from /usr/lib/libkabc.so.4
#7 0xb7fd882c in KABCore::KABCore () from /usr/lib/libkaddressbookprivate.so.4
#8 0x0804e94f in _start ()"

Neither can I remove it with the Add/Remove... function but is recommended to remove it via the Synaptic.....

But how would I know there, what to remove?

In Synaptic Package Manager, search for KAddressbook (search field in the top right corner), right-click it and click "completely remove", then press Apply (top middle).

Yes, thanks, I did find that in the end (just didn't look properly!)
However, I re-installed KAddressBook but still get the same error message when trying to open it.
Has it something to do with that it's actually a KDE associated application and I run Gnome? That shouldn't really matter, should it?
