[SOLVED]KDE Power Management System Closed Unexpectedly

I recently completed an install of Arch on KDE and encountered an issue with the power management system not loading on startup, and not being able to be run through any commands I know.
I've tried to update upower and powerdevil and I reinstalled both packages, but I can't fix the issue

Below is a log of what seems to be happening run with  `journalctl -b | grep power`

I run a desktop, so I'm not sure why the service is trying to run screen dimming and charging.

Thanks for any help on this issue!

I got this same error after updating plymouth. I downgraded plymouth and it fixed most of the errors but I'm still getting KDE power management closed unexpectedly

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ddcutil-2.0.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Re: [SOLVED]KDE Power Management System Closed Unexpectedly

Someone still needs to alert the package maintainer of the issue, by flagging the ddcutil package as broken.

[I just requested a user on GitLab to do so. But if someone else beats me to it: that wouldn't be a bad thing.]

Re: [SOLVED]KDE Power Management System Closed Unexpectedly

Power management still seems to be broke. Looks like the update only removed the error message from the task bar. Power Management looks to be disabled now from KDE settings.

Re: [SOLVED]KDE Power Management System Closed Unexpectedly

There's a "side-effect" where no crash happens but ddcutil having a while to initialize which leads to the powerdevil systemd service getting killed due to the 5sec service timeout being a bit low, this is easily solved by creating a  $HOME/.config/systemd/user/plasma-powerdevil.service.d/override.conf

[Service]
TimeoutSec=15sec
