We are sorry drkonqi closed unexpectedly…

I ran into a bit of an error after one of the upgrades:

We are sorry ,drkonqi closed unexpectedly…

I fixed it by sshing into the machine (changing to another TTY will work too I suppose) and running few commands as a user.

rm ~/.cache/ksycoca*

kbuildsycoca5

While this command was running it spit an error:

kbuildsycoca5 running…
kf5.kservice.sycoca: Parse error in “/home/andrzejl/.config/menus/applications-merged/xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu” , line 1 , col 1 : “unexpected end of file”

so I removed the file that couldn’t be parsed:

rm /home/andrzejl/.config/menus/applications-merged/xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu

and re-run the command. This time it went smooth:

kbuildsycoca5

Then I ran another command that added a tidbit as a last line to the ~/.bash_profile file:

echo 'export KDE_DEBUG=1' >> ~/.bash_profile

and tested if it took:

cat ~/.bash_profile

and the terminal spits out:

export KDE_DEBUG=1

Saul Goodman…

Then gain root and reboot:

su -c "reboot"

After the reboot plasma loaded successfully and I was good to go.

Cheers.
