Well these 'red lines' into journalctl are still logged. As its a design problem (lightdm is use on gnome & kde system, but with the same settings; indeed gnome complaint about the missing installed kde files, and vice versa)

It should be usefull to silence these harmless but annoying & scaring messages. Systemd might have such possibility.
