The Alt+F2 short cut provides an easy way to launch applications in KDE. The underlying program that starts the input window when Alt+F2 is pressed is krunner.
The little input window pops up when Alt+F2 is pressed. But nothing happens when I try to launch an application from it.
Launching krunner from a konsole terminal, shows that there is a segmentation fault. The little input window still pops up. But since the program already crashed, applications can't be launched from that little input window.
