Going to Settings > Programs > Permissions and clicking Change Permissions makes it pop up with an error.

Error in question:
Unable to execute the action: DBus Backend error: service start org.kde.k3b failed: Cannot launch daemon, file not found or permissions invalid.

It looks like it is looking for /usr/lib/kauth/k3bhelper however it is instead located in /usr/lib/k3bhelper

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1:20.08.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
Open k3b.
Open settings menu.
Click on programs.
Click on permissions.
Click change permissions.
Observe error message.

Changing /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/org.kde.k3b.service to point towards /usr/lib/k3bhelper instead fixes the issue.
