Reloading configs without rebooting

I have several configs I use. I’m looking for an easy way to swap configurations.
I’ve tried binding config folders to another config profile, then:

kquitapp5 plasmashell
sleep 2
kstart5 plasmashell

While plasma is reloading, the hotkeys configs don’t. Navigating to the hotkeys directory, the bind worked. The new configurations show. But they only become active if modified and resaved.

I’m binding:


For some reason its not working. And I can’t imagine why now.

Any ideas?
