Has anyone seen this behaviour before and know of a durable fix short
of scripting plasma startup with a delayed kill+restart of

It is unclear what exactly is happening. It almost sounds like there is
something in your profile that is preventing loading your kglobalaccel5 at
start-up, and the kill/reload does finally manage to load it correctly.

Before looking further into profile problems, after you kill/restart
kglobalaccel5 and have things working, rebuild the kde system config cache
passing the --noincremental option to force a complete rebuild, e.g.

$ kbuildsycoca5 --noincremental

then restart plasma and see if that resolved the issue. If not, the next test
would be to create a new user and logout/login with that account and see if
the problem persists. If it does -- file a bug, if not, you know you have a
problem in your profile. Check:


or any of the other sites returned searching "kde5/plasma delete profile"

Good luck.
