Libkf5globalaccel* issues after latest update

Hi guys,

After recent system update seems like something is wrong with libkf5globalaccel* packages resulting in shortcut daemon not starting which in turn prevents from using keyboard shortcuts ie F12 to open Yakuake doesn’t work and system settings app is throwing the following error: Failed to communicate with global shortcuts daemon.

At least 2 PCs affected as my mate reported exactly the same issue.

Timeshift to the rescue for now.

I can confirm this on two of my systems as well—my desktop and a VirtualBox install. I will not be upgrading my other two KDE neon installs for now.

A fix has just been released! Grab the latest updates and your keyboard shortcuts should work again.


I can confirm that it works now!
