    Default cannot login to KDE after upgrade

    If I install opensuse from a dvd and then upgrade KDE to 4.6.something by
    going to KDE - Experience Freedom! and following the links to the info page and clicking on the oci I can't log in. It just flicks back to the login screen. If I then login using Gnome once then logout I can login to KDE just fine again.

    Has anyone else encountered this or am I doing something wrong

    Smile Re: cannot login to KDE after upgrade

    To upgrade KDE, we normally recommend you go here and add in the correct repositories for your version of Linux:

    KDE repositories - openSUSE

    I am not sure how you did it, but if you were to add in the proper repositories from here and update from them, perhaps you can fix your problem.

    Thank You,

    Try logging in using the kde failsafe option from the KDM login screen.

    Actually you might want to check that you are selecting the plasma desktop session

    This is really annoying when you have a lot of users -- they never remember messages sent the week before the update or ask the person at the next desk.

    This happened because of the name change of the Desktop environment from "KDE" to "Plasma". My fix is to edit /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager -- using YaST, vim/ex, or what you will -- to set the default Window Manager to "KDE Plasma Workspace".


    Code:
    :g/DEFAULT_WM=/ s/.*/DEFAULT_WM="KDE Plasma Workspace"/

    Yes, the link on the kde page takes you to the repo you suggest
    and yes I am selecting Plasma

    I need to log in once with anything other than plasma ( Kde failsafe works too ) then Plasma works fine again

    Until I do this the login screen appears, I put in my details, the screen goes black and then the login screen re appears

    ???

    No, I've tried 3 or 4 existing accounts and they are all they same
    The accounts are on a Novell Suse box with LDAP

    I'll try making a brand new account tomorrow and try that
