Subject: [devuan-dev] bug#594: plasma-workspace: KRunner starts programs in the filesystem root
Package: plasma-workspace
Version: 4:5.20.5-6
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-Cc: void@???

Starting a program with KRunner used to start the program with the
working directory set to the user's home directory. In Chimaera KRunner
now starts programs with the working directory set to the root of the
filesystem. This behavior is problematic for the following reasons.

Starting a terminal emulator, e.g., Konsole in the file system root also
launches the shell in the file system root. Which usually means that the
user has to type "cd ~" to get to the directory of interest.

Starting a graphical application (like Kate) in the file system root
often means that file open and file save dialogs open in the file system
root directory, which is usually not the place where the user stores
their files.

To reproduce the behavior:

  1. Start KDE.
  2. Open KRunner, either by pressing Meta+Space or right clicking on
     the desktop and selecting "Show KRunner".
  3. Start a program, e.g., by entering "konsole" or "kate".
