Since upgrading from Plasma 5.18 to Plasma 5.20 (openSUSE Tumbleweed) I get constant notifications about a crash occurring in the system tray. The system process crashing is kactivitymanagerd, occurring whenever I open certain KDE applications or navigating (changing directories) in Dolphin. Is the cause known and a bug report opened, or should I add this to the bug tracker?
5.20 out… let me get it and see what happens! ;-))
Thanks! Hope that fix can be in very soon.
I had the same problem and here is what I did:
bz@orion:~ > cd ./.local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources bz@orion:~/.local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources > ll total 240 drwxrwxr-x 4 bz users 4096 Oct 17 09:54 **.** drwxrwxr-x 3 bz users 4096 Nov 5 2015 **..** -rw-r--r-- 1 bz users 4096 Oct 17 09:52 database -rw-r--r-- 1 bz users 32768 Oct 18 06:01 database-shm -rw-r--r-- 1 bz users 185432 Oct 18 06:01 database-wal -rw-r--r-- 1 bz users 2318 Oct 17 09:52 errors.log drwxr-xr-x 2 bz users 4096 Oct 18 06:01 **test-backup** drwxr-xr-x 2 bz users 4096 Oct 17 09:52 **working-backup**
Look at your errors.log. Kill the current kactivitymanagerd, remove the 3 files database, database-shm, database-wal, and restart the kactivitymanagerd daemon by user. It recreates all the files clean, and I did not get the error message again.
Thanks, that did it. Navigating to ~/.local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources and deleting database + database-shm + database-wal makes the crashes go away. Only annoyance was that all favorites were removed from the kickoff launcher and I had to add them back in, other than that all is working well once more.
