    Discover not loading properly and seems to hang

    I did a fresh install of KDE Neon when 6.0 came out and everything seemed to work pretty well other than the major know issues. But even now, after a good amount of the major issues have been fixed, my discover seems to still be out of commission.

    When clicking on discover or launching it via the "plasma-discover" command, they both seem to hang and do nothing. I can see the Discover processes in System Monitor with no CPU usage, but everytime I open Discover it creates a new one meaning I need to force close the application. I do get some output in the terminal, as shown below, but can't make heads or tails of it. Any help would be appreciated.

    ​plasma-discover output:
    libs QList("/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt6/plugins", "/usr/bin")
    org.kde.plasma.libdiscover: OdrsReviewsBackend: Fetch ratings: true
    adding empty sources model QStandardItemModel(0x55ff96ce0b80)


    ​P.S. It then seems to just hang and never exits meaning I need to force close it with Ctrl-C

    Did you ever find a solution to this issue?
    I have the same problem.
    No errors at all, it seems to be running, but no window.

      Welcome.

      Discover works for me in Plasma 6 (KDE neon - both fresh installation and upgraded from Plasma 5, Arch and openSUSE Tumbleweed -> all in X11 )…
      • Did you update to Plasma 6.0.2 and KDE Gear 24.02.1 ?
      • Did you try if this also occurs in a new user account?

        I've been using command line pkcon to update since discover stopped working.
        So I think I have plasma 6.0.2 and KDE Gear 24.02.1. But how would I double check?

        And I just created a new user account, and the same thing with Discover occurs.

          You could enter kinfo in Konsole.
          And in Konsole's -> "Hamburger menu" -> Help -> About Konsole you can see the KDE Gear version.

          You could additionally test if it makes a difference whether you use a Wayland or X11 session (you can choose this in the lower left corner at the log in screen).

            Hi,

            kinfo reports the following:
            Operating System: KDE neon 6.0
            KDE Plasma Version: 6.0.2
            KDE Frameworks Version: 6.0.0
            Qt Version: 6.6.2
            Kernel Version: 6.5.0-26-generic (64-bit)
            Graphics Platform: X11
            Processors: 12 × 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-11400 @ 2.60GHz
            Memory: 31.2 GiB of RAM
            Graphics Processor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti/PCIe/SSE2

            Konsole reports version 24.02.1

            Same problem using Wayland.
            Although if I run plasma-discover from console, I get the following message: (which I did not get using X11)
            libEGL warning: egl: failed to create dri2 screen

            But I noticed in Wayland, kinfo doesn't report NVIDIA gpu, so perhaps unrelated to the discover problem.
