KDE Plasma 5

kuser has not been ported to Plasma 5. KDE developers instead decided to develop a new application from scratch (see below).
Kuser still depends on kdepimlibs:4 and as a result, has been deprecated by Gentoo developers:

https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/kde-apps/kuser

Apart from automatic tagging, kuser has not seen much development in years. You can check the latest activity here:
https://cgit.kde.org/kuser.git/

This document contains the changes you have to apply to programs written for KDE 4.x when you want to port them to KDE Frameworks 5:

Alternatives

Unfortunately, we don't know of any alternative user administration GUI applications that are on a par with kuser. All existing alternatives do not have all the features that kuser has.

The official KDE Plasma 5 replacement is:
http://linux.overshoot.tv/kde-plasma/user-manager
It has a very simple interface and does not allow to manage groups.
