KDE Connect can no longer browse device files, KIOExec cache folder error
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I cannot browse files on my phone anymore through KDE connect. It gives me an error about a KIOCache directory already exists. Every time I try to browse files, it creates a new folder with a semi-random number in ~/.cache/kioexec/krun/ and then throws an error that the same folder it just created already exists

Best described by example:

Thanks

For reference, install dolphin as a workaround for now. I have no idea how to fix this

Ah.. sorry for the dupe, I searched first but didn't see that. Definitely seems to be an upstream issue, several reports of this on KDE's bug tracker and no resolution. I also found this that sounds like it could be possibly related, not sure. https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342732
Thanks
