Can't update system or wayland fails to find libKF5ConfigQml.so.5

Hey there,
since about a week ago I am unable to upgrade my system, or wayland will fail to boot:

/usr/bin/kwin_wayland: error while loading shared libraries: libKF5ConfigQml.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Could not fully finish the process "/usr/bin/plasma_session"

The library mentioned in the error is apparently from the library kconfig.
I am using the kde git packages, but I can't downgrade them to the non-git ones because something changed about depends handlding so installing a non-git package won't automatically replace all the other ones like it used to.

What am I supposed to do? Is there some flag that I forgot to add to get back the old package behavior so I can try again?

Thanks!

Ah yes. Seems like this actually is an issue that doesn't only affect me.

So the question is still valid: How do I replace all of the git packages with stable?

I was going through this often :sweat_smile:

btw, you don't need to use echo "y", just do yes | xyz :wink:
Thank you!

Why not use --noconfirm instead of echoing y?

The other option would have been to roll your system back to a point before you made the changes.

From the amount of help requests you've created, I would think you would have figured out that KDE is not exactly fully stable on Wayland yet. Maybe returning to X might be preferential until KDE & Wayland are playing well with each other.

How about "don't look a gift horse in the mouth"? :joy:

Why are you nitpicking an arbitrary nuance of the command that has no impact on its use or execution? Maybe just be grateful somebody bailed you out, copy the command, and do whatever you like with it on your machine. Your critical notes come across as bikeshedding.

btw.. this is weird because it doesn't happen on Garuda KDE git packages. (especially after the change on 16/March)

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/libKF5ConfigQml.so
/usr/lib/libKF5ConfigQml.so is owned by kconfig-git 5.93.0_r944.g3c861a6c-1

Several packages fail to compile without proper kconfig, and all kde git packages are compiling properly.

If you are still or go back to kde-git, can you give feedback if the issue is happening?
