KGet GUI not launching

When opening KGet using a menu launcher, nothing happens, i.e. no GUI is launched. Upon inspecting processes, I can see that KGet is running, although I can’t see any GUI. It does not in system tray either.

Invoking KGet through the terminal, I get the following:

    [user@machine ~]$ kget
    Icon theme "Tela-dark-geen" not found.
    Icon theme "Papirus-Dark" not found.
    Icon theme "Zafiro" not found.
    Icon theme "ubuntu-mono-dark" not found.
    Icon theme "Mint-X" not found.
    Icon theme "elementary" not found.

    "My Downloads"
    "My Downloads"
    Recalculate limits? true
    "My Downloads"
    "My Downloads"
    "My Downloads"
    "My Downloads"

I don’t understand why it is requesting those packages since I am in Manjaro KDE? Also, I have no clue how to go about the QWidget error.

I have reinstalled the KGet but that didn’t not solve the issue.

you can use free download manager

Although I appreciate the reply, I am looking to solve and be able to use the native KDE downloader. Thanks anyway

I have a similar issue.

Try removing those themes from the inherits line in ~/.themes/[your_current_theme]/index.theme. Guessing you don’t have those installed anymore.

Those themes are not anywhere in the suggested location. I never had them installed to start with :confused:

Hi all,
quick update on my part.
I also encountered this issue today on a fresh Install of Manjaro. Themes do not seem to cause this issue.

kget
kget: KPluginFactory could not load the plugin: “/usr/lib/qt/plugins/kget/kget_bittorrent.so”
kf.notifications: Audio notification requested, but sound file from notifyrc file was not found, aborting audio notification

Deleting the config folder solved the issue for me.

$ rm -r .config/kgetrc

That worked @david.m, thank you.
