Looks like everything is installed. Ran both of your commands and there are .desktop files and they
contain version 15.

Looks more like an issue with the repository. When I run "kdevelop --ps" (I like picking the project
at startup), I get errors such as:

kdevelop(32681)/kdevplatform (shell) KDevelop::PluginController::loadPluginInternal: Loading plugin
' "KDevCMakeDocumentation" ' failed, KServiceTypeTrader reported error: '
"The plugin 'kdevcmakedocumentation' uses an incompatible KDE library (4.11.4)." '

In fact, I would guess that every plugin fails! I will ask on the opensuse-kde mailing-list as this
appears to be a distro-related bug.
