Can't use kde/plasma CPU/RAM/NET monitor - no devices found

I'm using slackware current and I have a problem with kde/plasma widgets - i mean, CPU/RAM/NET monitors etc.

Look at the screen please:

As you can see, there are no devices available - the same situation with other monitors (even root is useless)

My system groups:

[szlak@pcpc]:/# id
uid=1234(szlak) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),7(lp),17(audio),18(video),19(cdrom),20(games),26(tape),81(messagebus),82(haldaemon),83(plugdev),86(netdev),93(scanner)

Any solution?
In the prev. version of slackware all were OK.

Best regards.

One thing you can try is mv ~/.kde to a different name, start kde and see if it works

Nothing, I did it before.
Root does not help too.

Can anyone check it please?

Works for me.

Ok thanks.
I have no idea what is wrong.
I've removed whole /root and nothing, clean KDE startup and nothing, weird.

I have no idea what is wrong.

Found this which may be use.

I can confirm that, on my system, these commands can be used in a Konsole session in KDE to start the monitoring widgets

bash-4.2$ plasmoidviewer sm_cpu
bash-4.2$ plasmoidviewer sm_net
bash-4.2$ plasmoidviewer sm_ram

As none of the widgets work for you, then perhaps a problem with 'ksysguardd' is indicated.

Your hint about 'ksysguardd' was very useful.
I had a problem with lmsensors.* library (file was corrupted, weird)

Reinstall of lm_sensors package did the job.

Thank you very much.
