Download KIM for KDE 4 from http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11505&forumpage=15. You will get an archive file named more or less kim4-0.9.5.tar.gz. We use KIM 0.9.5 version because at this time there is no version for KDE 5.
Extract it in you $HOME directory
To install KIM, don’t run the shell script named install.sh. That is the script for KDE 4, not for KDE 4. Instead, perform these commands manually based on the same script but for KDE 5:
manythanks, I tried to download KIM (KIM5 as I understood it should be for plasma) from here: https://github.com/caco3/kim5/tree/master/kim
but I don’t know what to download in all this list, there is no a .tar.gz file as in the instructions
if I click on src I also don’t know what to download

Search tools and OBS UI were created in assumption that each distribution consists of the single project and packages in this distribution are built inside of this project. This is no more true for openSUSE Leap 15.3 - most packages in openSUSE Leap 15.3 (and likely in future versions) are directly imported from SLE and built as part of SLE. So the only repositories that are associated with these packages are SLE repositories.
The situation is not nice but also probably not easy to solve. It works when you start with distribution (or top level project) and request packages inherited from other projects. But when you start with binary package, you only know project where this binary package was built. There can be arbitrary number of other projects inheriting the same built binary.
Search page on s.o.o now has workaround, but it hard codes list of SLE repositories for Leap 15.3, so this does not really scale and every new Leap release will have the same issue with search engine. opi is not fixed at all. And own OBS tools fail as well. This is something nobody thought of when switching Leap development model to follow SLE.
