screenshot of the error message
Description of problem:
When I try to add the Quick Display Configuration plasma widget to my desktop or panel I only get a box with an error message in its place:
"This object could not be created for the following reason:
Could not open the org.kde.plasma.kscreen package required
for the Quick Display Configuration widget."
Display configuration in KDE's systemsettings works just fine.
Also there are 2 entries in the widget list for this widget (neither works).
Affects both my desktop (with proprietary NVIDIA driver) and a VirtualBox VM (Vesa driver) running Fedora 20 Beta.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa \*kscreen\*
Add quick display configuration widget to KDE desktop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click desktop, add widget.
2. Drag quick display configuration widget to desktop.
Widget fails to load.
Widget will load.
Confirmed, 18.104.22.168 with a fix will be available soon

This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
