ACPI errors in journalctl, xdg-desktop-portal-kde


This is my first post on this forum and with this occasion I also want to say that I love this Garuda project! I've recently moved from Windows and so far I have had no problem in using Garuda, everything you guys made is very easy and intuitive to use - also, the forum layout, and overall aesthetic is so nice! I hope this project runs indefinitely and keeps on getting better, and good luck to the devs (i hope they are called devs xd)

TLDR: I have some errors in journalctl, dont know why they are there, and came here to ask you if they are harmless, meanwhile maybe learning something new from you

I have been running this OS for the past 2 or 3 weeks and so far I haven't had any issues apart from 2 crashes (or rather one crash and one freeze). One happened 7-6 days or so ago, and the other the next day. The crash was a complete black screen, while I was playing League of Legends on lutris. I was already in my 3rd match, when at the 8th minute or so, just black screen. PC fan and leds restart, but pc didn't automatically boot again. I just long press the power button, (it shuts completely down) then press power button again and everything worked normally until next day. I was minding my day, after 2 hours or so when I was on chromium, opened YouTube tab, and then screen froze. Pressing caps didn't light up the caps button on keyboard, quick press power button didn't shut down the pc, sadly I have read only recently that i should've tried ssh'd into the host but I didn't know at the time.

In the meantime, I have changed the C state in bios as read here

Since then I haven't had the issue again, but I've started being interested in reading on how to fix it, I've learned how to read the journalctl log thing, I've tried going back in time to when the crash happened but couldn't seem to find anything out of the ordinary.

What I did find though are these errors
In journalctl -b -p err journalctl (also pastebin because I exceeded body limit)

And also in dmesg (sorry if I put it in pastebin, but this output is so long)

I don't seem to run into any crashes or bugs lately, but maybe they were because of these?
So far I googled around, and for the ACPI error I have no problems that other people encounter related to the error (nothing that I know how to test at least)

For the xdg-desktop-portal-kde[2929]: This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
I have looked into processes and it seems to be running without me restarting it, but I don't know why the error appears.

Also btrfs-assistant is running as well, and the bashrc initial setup seems to be successful (any way to check what bashrc setup it's talking about?)

The only bug I have is that KDE connect doesnt automatically connect to my phone, I have to restart the kdeconnectd then it does, but i dont this its related to any of these.

Is there any way to clean up these errors so maybe they don't appear in the future?
Or is this just common and should be ignored (kinda pressing on my ocd though)

I'm also hoping of maybe learning something new out of these things :smiley:
Thanks for the help! (and hope I didn't open just another useless topic)
(I also hope I formatted things nicely, I tried following the guides)

Hi there, welcome to the forum.
The xdg-desktop-portal crash should be this bug in the Arch reporting system (referencing also the upstream KDE bug, I think).

I noticed that as well in my system, but I must say it is not currently affecting the usability of any application, so I haven't investigated much.
As regards the ACPI errors, well..., you can keep on searching, maybe update the BIOS, searching in the jungle of kernel boot parameters, maybe using this guide (not limited to!), but I think that they are often due to non-standard BIOS implementations.
I think this article summerizes the point quite well:


Thank you for the swift reply!

Oh, I see, so regarding the ACPI errors, basically if i learn more about kernel, I could make my own custom config, and theoretically, by using the correct parameters for my components I wouldn't be getting those errors, right? That's cool

As for the xdg-desktop-portal bug I guess ill just ignore it aslong as it doesn't interfere with anything

Thank you!

I agree with ignoring the xdg-desktop-portal errors for the moment.
For ACPI errors, it will certainly be instructive, but mine (very similar to yours), which I have always seen in all distributions (i.e. it was a fight begun loooong ago), have not disappeared by trying all the parameters in the guide above and many others suggested in internet searches.
After a while the fun ended, and since I have no obvious problems, I left it alone... :wink:
Good luck!


Tnx @filo I was looking for that bug for some time and I guess it wasn't open at first, I ended up uninstalling xdg-desktop-portal and xdg-desktop-portal-kde, but now that you pointed us on the Arch bug I will keep an eye!
