(partially?) fixes #29951
Couldn't get Yakuake to work, so haven't tested that.

I'm not 100% familiar with how KDE apps are built , I arrived at this fix by looking at the source for QT (my original intention was to patch that, but that didn't turn out to be needed). If there is a KDE- or QT-specific way to handle this sort of thing, I'm all ears.

This will work for this issue, but e.g. if you add other programs that provide data files that konsole uses then it won't pick them up.
The usual mechanism for this is
So why don't we pick them up? The answer is because we don't (usually) merge in all the subdirectories of
Previously I've thought that was good, but increasingly I wonder if we should just link the whole of
So I guess this is an okay solution, but we should be aware that konsole may still not work "properly" when you're not running Plasma.
