  1. Kubuntu 16.04
    from a terminal:
    $ plasmashell –version
    plasmashell 5.8.7

    from tty2:
    $ plasmashell
    QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display


  2. Checked multiple sites on how to restart KDE Plasma. They all mentioned killing the plasmashell and the restarting it with kstart. Unfortunately, kstart isn’t recognised by Manjaro. and just running the app worked like a charm.


    1. just type plasmashell in the terminal, and plasma works again, apparently you can run programs just by typing their name in the terminal
