plasma browser integration failure to connect to host (chrome)

I have plasma-browser-integration package installed and the
plasma-browser-integration extension on chrome. I keep getting
plasma-browser-integration has failed to connect to host. I have a bug
report for it here:
<a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plasma-browser-integration/+bug/1790934" title="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plasma-browser-integration/+bug/1790934">https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/plasma-browser-integration/+bu...</a>

It works in firefox as far as I can see or have tried.

1) Did you follow the readme in?

/usr/share/doc/plasma-browser-integration/README.Debian

2) If you did, you might notice that it instructs you to make a symlink to

/usr/share/plasma-browser-plugin/chrome/native-messaging-hosts/org.kde.plasma.browser_integration.json

however, the package actually installs the file you are trying to
symlibnk to to

/usr/share/plasma-browser-integration/chrome/native-messaging-hosts/org.kde.plasma.browser_integration.json

so the readme is either in error, or the destination folder the package
installs that to was specified wrongly.

if you substitute in the correct path in the readme instructions, I
think all should work?

Thank you, I have been trying to make those instructions make sense for
days (truck driver not linux tech here lol).
Your nudge in the right direction fixed me up. I'll update the bug report
with simple instructions for anyone else to follow along easily.

Thanks
