TLDR: Plasma (5.14.4 under Fedora 35) is not showing my /home/username/Desktop/*.desktop files on the desktop.
Details: I recently upgraded two computers at my household to Fedora 35 (f35): mine and my wife’s. My machine was previously running mate DE; my wife’s machine was previously running Plasma DE. My wife’s machine upgraded just fine. Desktop files in /home/username/Desktop are being displayed just as under f34. My machine did not upgrade fine. When I right-click and switch to Desktop view, the desktop is blank, even though I have a couple of .desktop files in /home/uername/Desktop. I’ve checked the .desktop file permissions as well as the Desktop folder permissions and my /home/username folder permissions and they are just like my wife’s files/folders. It may also be noteworthy that I am getting this message in /var/log/messages: 2022-07-04T12:19:50.967859-04:00 localhost plasmashell: QDBusConnection: error: could not send signal to service "" path "/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc" interface "org.kde.kconfig.notify" member "ConfigChanged": Invalid object path: /plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc Please help if you can.
