Getting `kf.windowsystem: Cannot use KWindowSystem without a QGuiApplication` with SVN

So I’m getting kf.windowsystem: Cannot use KWindowSystem without a QGuiApplication message whenever I try and use svn command. From bash, it still ends up working fine, but from within IntelliJ, it causes a problem and stops whatever action I’m trying to perform from occurring. Even just listing branches to check one out. Running Debian 12.1, pretty new install, up to date.

there was a bug resulting in the same message because of kwallet not running, but it was fixed in svn 1.12.something, and I have kwallet running, so should be something else…

My SVN is 1.14.2, so not sure what else it could be

bump anyone have any clue?

Do you have an SSH key set up and the “ksshaskpass” program installed?

No SSH key, and this is work, and can’t really get one setup.

And ksshaskpass is already installed.

If you uninstall ksshaskpass, does the issue go away?

Nope, didn’t change anything.

$ sudo apt remove ksshaskpass
