    after upgrade 5.19 to 5.20 desktop icons don't open folders

    Hi there,
    I've upgraded from KDE plasma 5.19.5 to 5.20 and since that, the icons on the desktop which normally open the dedicated folders on the hard drive don't work. A click open a window which says (excuse the translation from French) : this will open the software "name of the folder" and an error occurs. I have tried to rebuild a new icon without any success (same result). However, I can open the folder with a right click on the icon then / open with / Dolphin which is far more complicated than a simple left click.
    A help to fix this bug would be very appreciated,
    Thanks

    to dig a little deeper, the icon on the desktop points to /home/.local/share/plasma_icons, don't know if it can help...

    Code:
