Thread: Plasma 5.17 Kickoff Error

  1. #1

    Default Plasma 5.17 Kickoff Error

    I've been holding off, watching the forums to see if this issue is reported by others - hard to believe I'm the only one.

    After update to 20191014 snapshot, including Plasma 5.17, two of three system (Ryzen 5 laptop and AMD A6-3600 desktop; AMD FX-8310 works fine) have Kickoff errors: failure to display Kickoff menu with accompanying dialog...

    Error loading QML file: file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.kickoff/contents/ui/Kickoff.qml:31:1 module "org.kde.plasma.private.kicker" is not installed.

    Rolled both offending systems back to 20191009 snapshot, but tried updating the laptop to 20191016 again this morning. Issue still exists.

    Well as that's the default application launcher for plasma 5 I guess there'd be a lot of people shouting if it was a widespread bug...

    As @Knurpht wrote, how did you "update"

    If any other way than "zypper dup" you may have created problems for yourself, also, any possibility you've "mixed" repositories?

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    If you're satisfied all is correct then you could try a forced reinstall of the "plasma5-desktop" package.

    As instructed many moons ago, i only use..

    zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change

    All plasma-related upgrades in the 20191014 snapshot came from Main Repository (OSS) [http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/].

    I was beginning to suspect that I should try the forced reinstall of the plasma5-desktop, assuming no one had any contradictory ideas.

    Same problem here. My laptop was up-to-date with patches and I used "zypper dup" to bring my Dell Inspiron 1545 (32-bit, of course) to "20191016". No reboot was supposed to be necessary. After zypper was done, I started getting odd messages (regarding "mc" and "ml" errors) upon launching Konsole windows. Then I noticed that the main KDE application launcher would fail with a small red background error message displaying the "org....kicker" error message. Thinking my panel had become corrupted, I created a fresh one and saw the same problem when trying to open the application menu. Following reboot, the problem persisted along with my now being unable to access the local WiFi service. Great... no way to retrieve any new patches.

    I've since downloaded 20191016 to a DVD and reinstalled (after backing up /home, and few other important filesystem trees) the application launcher is working but still cannot get the WiFi connection to work. I've encountered the WiFi problem before and while it's a doable fix it shouldn't have been necessary. And more difficult than it should be as I cannot find any of the previously-available syslog packages (Rely on journald? Uh, no.) to watch what's going on as I am working on getting the WiFi access back. (And I have critical reporting functions running on other TW-based systems that will break should syslog not be available anymore.)

    This was NOT a clean upgrade to 20191016.

    There were all sorts of stability issues on the arrival of KDE 5.17, but not the Kmenu. Things have come down since then and KDE 5.17 is stable now 20191016.

    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i kde-agent 
    polkit-kde-agent-5-lang-5.17.0-1.1.noarch 
    polkit-kde-agent-5-5.17.0-1.1.x86_64
    @rnturner
    For the WIFi issue, this quick method works for me: Yast>System>Network Settings>Global Options>Network Setup Method>Switch to Wicked Service>Click OK. Re-open Network Settings and switch back to NetworkManager Service> Click OK.
    This action wakes-up WIFI or wired network here. It is also possible to do the same if the start menu does not open. Use Tab and arrows to do so:

    Code:
    sudo yast

    Re, Ryzen 5 laptop...

    Updated to 20191018 snapshot - no resolution, error still exists.

    Used zypper to force install plasma5-desktop - no resolution, error still exists.

    I normally use the alternative Application Menu rather than Application Launcher, and my TW machines are not Ryzen based. However, I've just tried switching one of those to use the Application Launcher I don't have any issues.

    I would suggest you file a bug report over at KDE https://bugs.kde.org/

    As a temporary workaround you could perhaps switch to using the Application Menu instead on that machine.

    Nothing wrong with today's updates here on our Ryzen motherboard.


    Try this: In Yast, open Software Management and search for plasma5> Mark them all (19) to << update unconditionally >>,apply changes or accept. Reboot and see if it works.

    Regards,

    Thanks, Mike. Did the <<update unconditionally>> for all 19 plasma5 packages on the Ryzen 5 laptop, and after reboot all appears to be well. Will update to 20191018 on the A6-3600 desktop and do the same plasma5 unconditional update. Updating plasma5-desktop by itself just wasn't sufficient.

    Thanks for your help.
