I'm not sure how to list all KDE app versions with one command, however,
here are the main ones:
$ plasmashell --version
$ kate --version
$ dolphin --version
$ konsole --version
I'm running Arch Linux and all packages are up to date. I'm running stable
versions of all packages. My Linux kernel version is:
4.15.10-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 15 12:24:34 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux
My CUPS version is 2.2.6
