    Default Plasma Workspace Crash After Upgrade to KDE 4.5

    Hi guys,

    I have just upgraded KDE to 4.5 but after reboot and login i can't see my desktop. Only cursor, blank screen, and a window says:
    Plasma Workspaces - The KDE Crash Handler
    We are sorry, Plasma Workspaces closed unexpectedly.
    You can help us improve KDE software by reporting this error

    Details:
    Executable: KDEinit4 PID:3787 Signal: 8 (Floating Point Exception)
    My PC:
    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4000+
    GeForce 6100 nForce 405

    Try this

    Do a console login
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Ses...sole.login.png

    At the command line, login with your user name and password.

    Now do this:

    Code:
    mv .kde4 .kde4-bak
    Now type:
    Code:
    startx
    If you get to the desktop, all your settings will have gone, but they are in the folder we just renamed
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    One thing to try is to try reverting the NVIDIA driver back to version 256.53 as there are problems with the latest NVIDIA driver at the moment.

    Update:
    I removed 260.19 driver then installed 256.53 version which I got from please_try_again post NVIDIA 260.19 Issues.

    Upgrade to kde 4.5 and everything works fine
