Since plasma5 upgrade, Kmix is not started on login.
Option is set in Kmix to auto start.
Tried with brand new user. Same issue.
Other user from Fedora doesn't have issue.

Workaround : set Kmix to autostart from systemsettings...

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1- Login on plasma5 session

==> Kmix is not started
This task depends upon

Plasma 5 need kmix 14.12.1

kmix-14.12.1-1 PKGBUILD

Not sure to understand the comment.
kdemultimedia-kmix 14.12.1 is already installed and doesn't start on login.
Do we expect an update in the package to replace kdemultimedia-kmix by kmix ?

I was coming for the same bug report.
The reason for the issue is explained here:

Thomas' PKGBUILD seems to fix it for Plasma 5 (don't know if it would work for KDE4 though)

Very helpful link.
I'm surprised the issue was not resolved sooner during kf5/plasma 5 early testings...

Well, I can say that about various kf5 issues... but after all it's up to us to find these and create bugs :)
