[SOLVED] Error in KDE System Settings.

Do you still have the packaging for the computer? Pack it up, take it back to the shop....

Definately safe for work

And tell them you are too stupid to own a computer!!

Just a thought:


Does that return anything? (it shouldn't)

$ echo $QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME                              

That might be the problem, qt5ct should not be set in Plasma.

Check /etc/environment and comment out.

Done. Rebooted as well.

$ cat /etc/environment
# This file is parsed by pam_env module
# Syntax: simple "KEY=VAL" pairs on separate lines

Still crashes. :woman_shrugging:

You did reboot?


Well officially out of ideas, reinstall :exploding_head:

Thank you. I do appreciate it. :hugs:

I think I'm going to go with "Who cares" now. I'll either slowly get the new user up to speed or just get drunk and reinstall.

I vote for option 2 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Reinstallation is so much better with a :wine_glass: :beer: and a :smoking:

It just seems like one of those a-hole KDE errors that no one can ever figure out.
One day it gets fixed as if by magic or voodoo or whatever or it never gets fixed. Whatever the stupid issue is. heh

Thanks @xircon for your time and patience. :wink:

Not to mention my puerile sense of humour....

I think the last time I saw this on the forum it was because of a version mismatch between some KDE/Qt components, but then I don't think there have been any recent KDE/Qt updates...

If a new user account works then it's local to the user rather than a system-wide issue so reinstalling is unlikely to help.

Looking at the error message:

and a quick search returns

so it looks like a memory error.

Have you run a memory test? Are you running with a heavy memory load?

I saw that when I was searching for some answers at the beginning when I first noticed this. The answers/explanations were either way above my head or it was dismissed as an audit error (I believe that was what one person mentioned on stackoverflow.).

Not at all. Right now I'm only using about 2.7G of the 16G in the machine. The only time it gets really taxed is when i build something or run a VM. But that's the extent of my memory taxing.

I did when I first got the new ram a couple weeks ago. It passed without error at that time.
I suppose later today I can re-run it. "It usually works, until it don't." :wink:

Desperate times and all that.

Memtest is good.
Hmm, this is annoying me now.

And I just did a pointless thing as well... I did a virus scan. :woman_shrugging:
Nothing showed up but I did it anyway.


Was sold to Apple Inc in the mid '90s. :stuck_out_tongue:

I knew you would have had an evil streak about you. :rofl:


Don't you have an Uruk-hai to play with or something!? :dagger:



Nope ─ Saruman broke his compiler when he downloaded Orcses & Trollses 2.0.alpha-1. :stuck_out_tongue:
