I just upgraded from FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE to 11.1. Now KDE is not working completely. KDE does start and programs can be opened. However, it seems like some aspects (perhaps all?) of plasma are not working. The cashew is gone, and shortcut keys set by me are not functioning. What's worse, there are only four virtual desktops so I can't really use the machine normally any more.

The most likely indication of what might be wrong probably, is that I can open the system settings, but some of them simply crash when I click on them. Specifically system settings -> workspace behavior. I would appreciate any suggestions for how to fix plasma, or even just how to add virtual desktops manually if that's possible.

How did you install KDE? If you installed the system through the ports collection then it might be required to rebuild the whole thing and compile it against your current system. Although a minor upgrade usually doesn't cause too much trouble there are situations in which it might.

I have found good information now. Going to the system settings -> workspace behavior place I click on it and it crashes (like I mentioned) and then I look at /home/ole/.xsessionerrors and see this:
