Bug Description

On Kubuntu 15.10

The paths given by kf5-config --path qtplugins
have a wrong trailing "/plugins", see

~$ kf5-config --path qtplugins

these paths don't exist, only these do:


In a discussion on https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=225&t=129082&p=345873#p345873
we suspect this might be the cause of some serious bugs in the theming system; KDE ends up picking
GTK theme instead of its own theme. All icons get wrong, some disappear, etc.

This might even be related to Bug #1451564 (Single-click not working)
