@gan 10 days old ok. Me just couple of hours old. I hope issue doesn’t creep up for me. As for you try running commands anyway as those packages are part of Manjaro KDE 20.2…
Oh, man! I search for kservice-git with pacman and I have that package too.
I’m just a bit tired, this evening. Why I searched for it ten minutes ago and I couldn’t find it?
I will try your solution, then. Thanks!
@gan Just copy-paste commands in terminal why you looking for them in Pacman ?
I like pacman. You see, old school… the command line has always been fashinating for me.
This worked for myself. Issue appeared after configuring and running snap to install a package. Also happened earlier today but unsure what the issue was that time. Sort of a bummer but thankful for the forums!
I reinstalled manjaro 20.2 KDE and face this issue. both application updated and add panel disappearing.
reinstall the non-git version and the mv command totally solved my problem. Thanks, man!
Your solution works! Thanks!
Just coming here to say i’m also experiencing this issue (new install since a couple days ago, with latest manjaro kde iso. installed using manjaro architect)

Solution posted upwards a few posts ago
I just want to add that this solution did not work for my two systems (nvidia & intel)
… Now I will try to recreate a new profile.
9:05 PM For me, recreating the profile from scratch was the solution, steps taken:
I open a terminal Ctrl-Alt-F2 with my current user (If my home/user is “mre”):
$ cd /home/ # sudo mv ./mre ./mre.bak # mkdir ./mre # chown mre:mre ./mre
After reboot the PC, copy carefully all the folders and settings from the previous backup home on the new one. Things like:
And much more carefully copy the content (of what you can recognize) of the following:
Check during each copy that the disgusting bug is not activated.
If the bug is reactivated, then you can probably determine the cause of the problem. From what I see, the problem seems to be related to Bauh, flatpak or appimage. Since I didn’t copy anything from your folders wherever I saw references to these.
Note: not everything will work correctly; for example: remmina is asking me for the passwords to connect… if I haven’t forgotten them, everything is solved (for me).
This is not easy, it is not fast, but after lasting +1 month with this ugly glitch, investing 1 or 2 hours is worth it.
Finally reboot to see the bug gone for now, until the KDE developers trip us up .
And if any of the KDE developers read this (I don’t think so), hopefully it will serve as a background for what they might do during each major plasma and component upgrade: reset the KDE and component configuration.
I PREFER that the plasma/desktop configuration is reseted to suffer this bug that prevents the use of KDE.
This is my solution, now I need to perform it on the PC I use at work, hopefully I will only lose the decorations I installed without losing a day or 2 hours of work.
I hope it will be useful to those like me who don’t want to leave KDE and switch to the awful gnome versions.
So does this have a bug ticket yet that we can go upvote? Cause it’s clearly something that the devs needs to fix, right?
First off I would say check the normal ‘plasma is wonky’ things:
(possibly in conjunction with the above tips like making sure not to use git packages … and afterwards clearing out the cache and such)
If you absolutely must create a new user … then I made a tool for such migrations (well really for in between installs/systems … but it works here)
I reported the bug two weeks ago and it has been fixed two days ago, no need to upvote anything
For those that don’t have the update yet, the “solution” to the problem is to remove ~/.config/mimeapps.list No other configuration needs to be removed. Or simply not use kservice-git until it gets updated with that patch
Perfect. That seemed to be the case, just needed verification.
Marking your post as the solve rather than other mixed/heavy-handed workarounds.
Relevant bug report (for future reference perhaps) that I found because mine was marked as duplicate (didn’t find this original one at first)
And it has indeed been marked as fixed.
Other relevant threads:
@cscs, I try the @Zamundaaa solution, and neither works for me: removing the mimeapps.list didn’t work. But, I see that I have installed this foliate-git app:
If the error comes back, I will try to remove foliate-git first.
The solution you have marked is not the one that has worked for me in this post.
Of course recreating my home/user profile has helped me on several occasions with this bug in these last 2 or 3 years. Sometimes the fix is just delete some config folder-file for ¿bauh/flatpak? or delete /home/mre/.local/share/applications/badapplication.desktop. I’ll check your Transfuse script, maybe it saves me time the next time.
