Description Hrtmt Brng 2013-12-21 20:00:32 UTC
When I create a dbus shortcut and I click "D-Bus-Browser aufrufen" (call d-bus browser) nothing happens. I have to install qdbusviewer. In case qdbusviewer is not installed it would be helpfull to get an error message.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the shortcut configuration
2. Create a shortcut of type d-bus call
3. Go to action tab
4. Click on "D-Bus-Browser aufrufen" (call d-bus browser)
Actual Results:  
nothing happens

Expected Results:  
if the d-bus browser is not installed, an error message appears
Comment 1 Tom Goralczyk 2015-10-15 08:39:21 UTC
Isn't this a downstream issue of a missing dependency in Debian? Arch Linux pulls in qdbusviewer as part of qtchooser which is a dependency of qt5-base.
Comment 2 Tom Goralczyk 2015-10-15 09:05:56 UTC
Just tested this on Debian. qdbusviewer is now part of qtchooser (it used to be a separate package) and should be present on all systems running KDE5. As such, this is no longer an issue and can be closed.

Comment 4 Nate Graham 2022-02-06 16:53:45 UTC
Re-opening as the downstream solution of every distro installing QDbusBrowser is not very elegant, as that app is a nerdy developer tool that seems quite random to have pre-installed by default. We should improve the UI here.

See for example https://pagure.io/fedora-kde/SIG/issue/115, which has gathered several duplicate reports.
