Bug Description

Synapse searchs everything perfect, but does not open any program or folder. In fact, it does not open anything at all. I tried to erase the config.json in /.config/synapse and purge synapse. Then I reinstalled it. This does not seems to work.

Please, help.

Starting from console gives the following:

Obviously the problem resides in the last line, but I have no idea how to solve it.
I'm running it in a Kubuntu 12.10 release.

Im assuming this is because synapse doesnt cater for KDE as well as it does for gnome? Any official word on whether this is going to improved in the future?

Im running synapse 0.2.11
