KDevelop unable to open any project (kf5.kio.core: couldn't create slave: "Cannot talk to klauncher: ...")
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I installed KDevelop 5.1.0 on an up to date Solus install shows the following error popup at startup.

Unable to create io-slave. Cannot talk to klauncher: The name org.kde.klauncher5 was not provided by any .service files

As I'm clearly not using KDE I ignored this at first. But opening any project fails with the following message:

Unable to load the project file /home/san/Projects/UnrealEngine/UE4.kdev4.
The project has been removed from the session.

When starting the kdevelop from the terminal you'll see a related issue whenever you try to open an project.

kf5.kio.core: couldn't create slave: "Cannot talk to klauncher: The name org.kde.klauncher5 was not provided by any .service files"

Having a quick chat with kfunk on #kdevelop he indicated this warning is probably the cause of kdevelop failing.

Install kinit and let me know how it changes

Because of this issue and the AppImage version doesn't work (T3792) there is now no way to use KDevelop on Solus.

Install kinit and let me know how it changes

This fixes the issue! Can we add this as a rundeps?
