libproxy tries to detect if you're running a Qt5 application.
In any case, I recommend using the pacrunner's libproxy instead of libproxy's
libproxy. The proxy settings won't be read from KDE's. Instead, they will be
centralised in the pacrunner daemon. KDE should provision it (it's just a D-
Bus call, plasma-nm can do it).
