Heya Brian,

which version of KDevelop is this?

Could you get us a backtrace of the crash? Isn't there a 'DrKonqi' dialog when 
KDevelop crashes? The dialog can help you to get a backtrace.

Otherwise, please check:

If you just want to have that plugin in your KDevelop 5 version:
- Install the kdevplatform dev package from your distro


git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kdev-executebrowser.git
cd kdev-executebrowser
sudo make install

Restart KDevelop

Hope that helps,
