Thanks Maik 
I am actually experimenting with a very minimal KDE install so I probably need to install some extra packages to make it work.For example,  Album - Open in File Browser isn't working either. The error says some kioslave packages missing but if I search for kioslave in synaptic it only finds few packages and they are installed. 
I will try your suggestion later. Thanks for the tip.

The option "Use File Dialogs from the system" is only for the file dialogs. 
This option also does not work in the AppImage, the platform plugins can not 
be compiled because of dependencies (KIO, GTK). Your problem is different. You 
can try running "kbuildsycoca5" in the console and see if the problem is
