Themes / Discover crash

Sun May 20, 2018 11:45 am
Hello, i'm using kde neon since 3 weeks ago. Atm i have a problem with Discover, it crashes without starting. I chose to execute it in Konsole:
Code: Select all
plasma-discover

QQmlApplicationEngine failed to load component
qrc:/qml/DiscoverWindow.qml:162 Cannot assign to non-existent property "showCloseButton"

Errors when loading the GUI
invalid kns backend! "/etc/xdg/servicemenu.knsrc" because: "Config group not found! Check your KNS3 installation."
invalid kns backend! "/etc/xdg/ksysguard.knsrc" because: "Config group not found! Check your KNS3 installation."
Discarding invalid backend "servicemenu.knsrc"
Discarding invalid backend "ksysguard.knsrc"
setting currentApplicationBackend PackageKitBackend(0xc2f7b0)

so i checked my theme settings and...

all my themes settings are literally EMPTY. There's nothing there.

When i try to change lockscreen settings it says:

even if this file exists. Any suggestions? this happened yesterday .

I have exactly the same problem. It started when Plasma was updated to 5.12.90. I suspect the bug is there and we'll just have to wait until it's fixed.

sudo apt-get install qml-module-org-kde-kcm doesn't seems to solve it.

The problem related here and in the bug report exists since some KDE software (plasma and/or frameworks) released on some date near the bug report date.
It never was fixed on my systems.
Edit: I use system settings in icon view mode instead sidebar view.

i find out "kcm_lookandfeel.so" is missing.
Code: Select all
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/kcm_lookandfeel.so
should be there. Any ideas how to replace it?

;D ;D ;D Great, tanks to the dev to fix this. I mention before this package was the problem. I'm glad I do not have to reinstall.

Hi, I followed this post with real interest. I am trying to understand the role of Discover in KDE.
Some days ago the Discover program went off.
Today I run from terminal the following command:
plasma-discover
The program 'plasma-discover' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install plasma-discover

Should I really meed the program or it is enough running periodically pkcon refresh and pkcon update.
Obviously, I could not search for themes or any other KDE applications. But I could install an see them in the section system-settings. I tried to use plasma-discover until it disappeared and I could install programs but not themes.
I allso run the following command:
pkcon get-transactions > pkcon.log

I have uploaded the file in this link https://goo.gl/3FGeXx

I will appreciate some feedback because I am new using KDE Neon, although i have 15 years running Ubuntu at work. I think KDE Neon is the best of both worlds.
