Description Nate Graham 2021-04-07 21:50:57 UTC
Everything KDE from git master

1. Log out of git master Xorg Session
2. Log into git master Wayland session
3. Everything loads fine--including plasmashell--but I hit Bug 433460
4. Go to System Settings > KScreen KCM > Adjust scale to 175% and then back to 200%
5. Log out
6. Log back in

At this point, plasmashell does not load. Trying to load it by hand reveals:

nate@Liberator:~$  kstart5 plasmashell
Omitting both --window and --windowclass arguments is not recommended
nate@Liberator:~$  Aborting shell load: The activity manager daemon (kactivitymanagerd) is not running.
If this Plasma has been installed into a custom prefix, verify that its D-Bus services dir is known to the system for the daemon to be activatable.

All my other dbus-activatable stuff works, and I have done the following:

sudo cp -r ~/kde/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/* /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/
sudo cp -r ~/kde/usr/share/dbus-1/ /usr/share/

If I manually execute ~/kde/usr/lib64/libexec/kactivitymanagerd, plasmashell immediately springs to life.

Marking as a dupe of the kglobalaccel issue, looks like the same root cause even if it's in another service
