Application launcher issues after plasma 6 upgrade

After the update my application launcher got completely screwed up showing this error:

file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.kickoff/contents/ui/main.qml:20:1: Cannot load library /usr/lib/qt6/qml/org/kde/plasma/private/kicker/ ( cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

also my networks panel shows similar errors.
Am I missing some dependencies or stuff like that because i checked and I have those files.

Hi, @bicas welcome to the forum.

I think I remember seeing this when I tested Plasma 6. IIRC, then the cause was a partial update.

Partial updates can occur when you update at the very moment the repos are being updated.
Or the user may have willingly chosen to not install all updates (which is not recommended).

Could you try to update again?

Unfortunately I’ve already tried multiple times during the span of a couple of days but it did nothing

Have you also updated the mirrors recently?

I concur with @SemLraug on partial upgrade situation.

Try refreshing your mirrors from the welcome app.

Then open a terminal and run: sudo pacman -Syyu

Reboot and check.

This lib. is provided by krunner which currently is at 6.0.0-1.

Make sure you have that version.

Over at Garuda someone is reporting [1] the same problem.

Did a quick search on but can not find recent reports over there.

Ok so apparently I didn’t have krunner installed, now is fixed, thanks for the help :grin:

That’s great! Glad you could solve the issue!

:enos: :wave:t5:

As installing krunner was the solution, could you mark that as the solution, please? That helps others find this solution when they come across a similar problem.
