plasma panel is absent or inoperant

Sat Mar 07, 2015 2:19 am
Trying to install on another linux box the plasma panel now is unresponsive, though everything worked perfectly on another linux box. However, I have access to the kderuncomman line popup menu. From there I can call the chromium browser from which I am writing now.

1.0 I get a contextual menu from which I can call:
-run command
-add panel (which is still inoperant)
-leave, after which if I punch enter will log me out to the login manager (will permit to logout, though no popmenu will indicate further action, i.e. logout, shutdown, hibernate ...)
-lock session

2.0 Trying to call other utilities or program from contextual menu run command:
-Programs could be called without problem:
-- chromium
-- pcmanfm:
- mousepad
--But at least one other not:
-- lxterminal:
KDEInit could not launch 'ksystraycmd':
Could not open library '/usr/lib/libkdeinit5_ksystraycmd'.
Cannot load library /usr/lib/libkdeinit5_ksystraycmd: (/usr/lib/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

3.0 Doing some in an out from plasma to lxde I have tried to remove plasma-meta and reinstalling plasma and plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace but that did not seem to help more.

The only thread I have found yet is:
But there is no solution.

The library is mentioned in: ... ace/files/
I imagine that it should be plasma-workspace: ... workspace/

I remind you that I was on plasma-meta, until I realised yesterday that there was the contextual menu on the desktop permitting access to the run command option. I now work with plasma, plasma-desktop and plasma-workspace.

Any suggestions or comments?
