KDE apps don't work on LXQt

KDE apps don’t work under LXQt anymore
For example ark:

 ➜ ark     
    ark: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libKF5KIOWidgets.so.5: undefined symbol: _ZNK5Solid13StorageAccess11isEncryptedEv

I still cannot use any kde app on lxqt
for example dolphin:

➜ dolphin 
dolphin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libKF5KIOWidgets.so.5: undefined symbol: _ZNK5Solid13StorageAccess11isEncryptedEv

Is this a fault on my end?

You sure you have all the dependencies installed and that your system is up to date?

Check if kio is the right version (and not a -git package):

$ pacman -Qi kio

Yes, my system is up to date
according to pacman and pamac
I also have all the dependencies installed
Just now explicitly reinstalled every dependency (did not help)

and I have the normal kio installed (not the git version)

kio looks fine - so what’s causing dolphins symbol lookup error? Something does not fit together.

$ pacman -Qi dolphin
$ pacman -Qs '\-git$'

Ok, my bad :sweat_smile:
I used $ pacman -Qs '\-git$' and had solid-git, sonnet-git and attica-git installed
I now have the normal version and KDE apps work again

Thanks and sorry, didn’t realize I still had -git packages.
I had a problem with kio in the past and kio-git was the solution.
After the non git version started working again, apparently I forgot to also use the normal version for all the dependencies
