First troubleshooting step is to reboot.
This symbol ↻ menas that a reboot is pending after the last update.

Rebooted. The issue persists.

I will not have access to my PC for the whole day.
You could try checking if the issue persists selecting x11 instead of Wayland at login, but it’s just a shot in the dark.
At a quick check, I haven’t found anything in the KDE bug tracker:
It would have been there if it is so blocking…
Another shot in the dark, checking the Arch wiki, this suggestion is for Gnome users using KDE apps, but you never can say, just try:
From terminal:

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb kdeconnect

or whatever the name of the app…

The issue is present even on x11.

Please, no pictures from terminal output.

They are not searchable if they are pictures, and can be hard to see across different devices.
Please select the text in the terminal, copy the text and paste the text into the post.
Select the newly pasted text in the post.
Click the </> icon in the post toolbar

This creates nicely formatted text that we can use by forum search.

Thank you :slight_smile:


Try reinstalling kdeconnect


Still the same, reinstalled & rebooted.

The error message in your screenshot points to the KDE Connect widget in the system tray widget. There have been a lot of problems with these widgets lately.
Try removing the system tray widget and creating a new one:
Top Panel → Enter Edit Mode → Mouse over system tray widget → remove.
Top Panel → Add Widgets → System Tray.


I did this process, issue same as before.

It looks like a KDE bug report was opened and confirmed.
Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
For the moment, (from the linked Arch fr discussion) try deleting (keep a backup) ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc and reboot.


Thank you for sharing the link. The fix will be provided in the update, right? I don’t need to do anything.

Just edited my post above, sorry…

I don’t seem to have the backup file, will need to wait for the fix.

No, I meant make a copy somewhere of that file and delete it.
If it doesn’t work (after a reboot possibly), restore the file.
The exact name should be (but I’m not at my Garuda machine):

Oh, okay. I apologize for that. Hopefully, all goes well and I’ll update you on this.

Sorry, I just don’t have time to read the details today… :slight_smile:
If you deleted that file, probably the panel afterwards will have to be all reset.
If you have already deleted, restore the file and follow the last comment (#7) of the bug report (only one line to be deleted).

I followed your solution to this. The only method that worked was deleting the file, the last comment provided there didn’t seem to help. However, there are few widgets that still have the issue, I don’t use them. As of now, this is the solution.

Thank you for your help.
