Description Zesko 2022-10-03 13:06:27 UTC

I noticed that the same error message of  xdg-desktop-portal-kde appears in the journalctl log every reboot or re-login.

The error message:
xdg-desktop-portal-kde: This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
                                                    Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb.
systemd-coredump: [🡕] Process 1344 (xdg-desktop-por) of user 963 dumped core.

I guess that the issue was caused by update some QT package that would break xdg-desktop-portal-kde.

See the error message in the log:

See the same issue:

1.  Just install any Arch based distro or Manjaro Testing branch in VM 
2.  Update system
3.  Install xdg-desktop-portal-kde
4. Reboot and see the error log in "journalctl -b 0 -p err"

- KDE Plasma Version: 5.25.5
