Hello Kai Torben,
I took a look on the patch you provided. Would it be possible to replace all

value ("use_native_file_dialogs", true).toBool ()
value ("use_native_file_dialogs", false).toBool ()
in order to _not_ have the native file dialog as default (because it is is 
broken IMHO, for openSUSE at last)?
Thank you for your feedback,
take care

Dear Dieter Jurzitza,

This problem seems related to bug #54607 [1].  As workaround, the Octave
GUI offers a setting

   Edit > Preferences > General (Tab) > "Use native file dialogs"

which should be DISABLED on your system.  With this setting disabled, a
non-native file dialog (looks slightly different from the standard one
used by KDE) should pop up within a second.

Personally, I use OpenSUSE 15.1 and face exactly the same problem.

Best regards,
