Which kf5-plasma version do you have installed? I ran into the same issue yesterday, an upgrade to 5.24.0 fixed the problem. Unfortunately kf5 5.24.0 was unpushed and then pushed again.

Comment 2 Kim Bisgaard 2016-07-17 09:59:26 UTC
Are you suggesting I reinstall kf5-plasma package? because I might have gotten the un-pushed version.

I have another system with the same versions, which works as normal.

I have kf5-plasma-5.24.0-1.fc24.x86_64 installed - the pushed or un-pushed?

Comment 3 Christian Dersch 2016-07-17 10:05:59 UTC
I don't know what the difference is. On my broken system I still had 5.23.0 due to the unpush (while you have 5.24?). On two other systems I upgraded before everything works fine too... After upgrading the broken one to 5.24.0 everything is fine there. 

@Rex Dieter: You unpushed, edited and then pushed the update again. What are the changes?

Comment 4 Kim Bisgaard 2016-07-17 10:18:31 UTC
I just did a reinstall of kf5-plasma package alone, and everything is working again :-))


Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2016-07-17 11:07:52 UTC
Re: why was kf5 unpushed?

To prevent kf5-5.24.0 going stable due to autokarma (we want it to go stable at the same time as plasma-5.7.x).  I saw no "revoke" option, so ...
