I noticed a problem. When I open the Screen dialog from the plasma5 System Settings, it crashes. If I open the same dialog with a command `kcmshell5 kcm_kscreen`, then everything is fine. I have the latest packages installed.
Does anyone else have such a problem? And are there any suggestions for a solution?
@Serge Could you please provide additional information including:
- Exact FreeBSD version (uname -a) output
- pkg version -v output (as an attachment)
- /var/run/dmesg.boot output (as an attachment)
Obtaining a backtrace of the crashing process (and providing it as an attachment) would also be great.
Do you mean the 'Display configuration' where you configure the monitor arrangement and such?
I have the same issue.

I don't get a core dump, instead the kcrash handler is running...
And yes, it is "Display and Monitor"
I am running the closed-source nvidia driver btw.

Hm, works just fine for me on nvidia 
Are your packages all up-to-date?

Yes, it is "Display and Monitor".
FreeBSD ulbsd 12.1-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p2 ULBSD amd64
And I use VESA or i915kms.ko drivers. The result is the same.

Yes, Display and Monitor works fine if View Style of System Settings is "Sidebar View". If the Style of System Settings is "Icon View", then Display and Monitor crashes.
But in "Sidebar View" mode System Settings crashes if select "Night Color" in Display and Monitor section.
(In reply to Serge Volkov from comment #11)
Indeed, switching to Icon View makes it crash.
Have you checked upstream for similar reports already?
Interesting... same here, works from sidebar up to a certain point - "night color" crashes.
The issue seems to be that we at the moment cannot provide the 'geolocation' dataengine, and the night-shift plugins' qml depends on it.
You can quickly edit

x11/kf5-plasma-framewors: add upstream fix for dataengine initialization
This fixes a crash in the systemsettings 'night colors' screen configuration

Thank you Tobias for finding this.
Regarding the KDE issue entry - could this also solve bug #236174 which I now experience again since some time?
(In reply to Tobias C. Berner from comment #15)
Removing the CC.Geolocator block in /usr/local/share/kpackage/kcms/kcm_nightcolor/contents/ui/main.qml solves the problem.

With the update kf5-kcmutils port (see commit above) it should work unmodified too :)

Thank you, Tobias! I understood.
(In reply to Martin Birgmeier from comment #17)
Hm, could be -- I also sometimes get them on my notebook too unfortunately; so let's see if they are gone :)
