The latest KDE discover 5.12.5. under Fedora 28 crashes only when clicking on Application catgorie and/or sub-categories of applications. All other functions are working fine. What can I do? What is going wrong. My System is running without any issues otherwise. Please suggest a solution.

For a start, you can run Discover with plasma-discover from terminal to see output. There might be something which guides us to solution...
