Unable to find the Okular component

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))


after installing okular (without any complain), when I try to execute it I get a windows with the message

"Unable to find the Okular component."

I followed the instructions here but it still does not work.

It looks like something is missing or not installed in the right place.

Any suggestion?

Other KDE applications (Kate, Kile, cervisia, ,...) run without problems.

The correction in r111423 should fix the issue.

For reference, the problem was coming from the fact that KDE installs plugins as .so files. Some tests in okular wanted to link with the .so plugin, which is not possible on Mac. On the other hand, converting the plugin to a .dylib library was solving compilation, but was breaking use at runtime, as okular loads .so plugins when opening.
