I recently upgraded to Kubuntu 15.04 with plasma5 desktop.
If I try to do auto-completing address on the compose window, mouse cursor seems to brink but nothing appear.
If I switch to Unity environment on Kubuntu15.04, it works without problem.
So this issue is related to plasma5 desktop environment and claws-mail.
There's one thing you can try:
* quit claws-mail
* open ~/.claws-mail/clawsrc in a text editor
* set address_search_wildcard=0
If this changes nothing then the bug is like your description implies - in plasma5.
Please report what you find when changing that hidden pref.
Thank you Paul,
I did what you suggested.
Nothing changed (once I saw the pop-up window appeared but I cannot reproduce it).
Sylpheed works auto-complete address even in plasma5 environment.

Fix address autocompletion popup not displaying on Plasma5.
Closes bug #3466.
This will be fixed in an upcoming Claws Mail release. Thanks for the report!
I've tried to build the sources with the fix from git. The sources are lacking the configure - so I won't be able to ./configure and make.. The tarball with the claws-mail-3.11.1.tar.xz from sourceforge does include the configure script.
GIT always lacks the .configure script. Run autogen.sh then make
Thank you for your work to update claws-mail.
I compiled the claws-mail from the git repository and it works fine now on my Kubuntu 15.04.
