Public bug reported:

On a default Ubuntu (not Kubuntu) desktop install, kdeconnect-app does
not work at all. When running it from a terminal, it outputs:

QQmlApplicationEngine failed to load component
qrc:/qml/main.qml:93 Cannot assign object of type "DevicesModel" to property of type "QAbstractItemModel*" as the former is neither the same as the latter nor a sub-class of it.

And then hangs.

This is fixed in upstream release v1.4.1, specifically upstream commit

Groovy and Hirsute are not affected.
