    Default [SOLVED] Cannot login after update to Kde 4.6.1 on openSuSE 11.4

    If someone, like me, updated the shipped kde 4.6 to 4.6.1. using the repo KDE46/11.4 only to find himself stuck at the login screen, try this:
    From the "type of session" choose "Kde plasma workspace (failsafe session)" and try to login.
    Once logged in, logout, then choose "Kde plasma workspace" type of session and login again.
    This has solved the problem on three machine updated from that repo.
    Hope this helps someone.

    it most definitely helped me! Thanks for your suggestion... I was giving myself a headache trying to figure out what was wrong, as the error message(s) that I was getting weren't really telling me much. Sometimes the answer to the problem is a simple one...

    sure hope one (or all of you) logged a bug so that the problem can be
    fixed......i mean, this work around should not be required, right?

    here: http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports

    and, reference this thread in the bug report:

    http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php?t=455856

    and, when you have a bug number post it here so those who find this
    thread via search will be able to check on the bug's progress.....and
    add any new info that might help the devs solve the problem (like
    maybe your hardware, graphics chip, etc etc etc which might be different)

    I experienced this problem after updating to 4.6.1 also. The method for logging in described here worked for me, but choosing the default option from the sessions menu still won't work.

    This issue is covered in https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=681114.

    The default login will work again if one edits /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager.

    I accidently found that "rechoosing" in the kdm login manager Session Type -> KDE is enough to login. Like here: http://susestarter.blogspot.com/p/experimental-area-for-experts-only.html
