    Exclamation ConsoleKit not contactable after 11.3->12.1 upgrade

    I did a zypper dup upgrade on my Lenovo W520, running KDE4.

    After the upgrade, I can't log in using any of the KDE plasma workspace options - each time I get an error message of "ConsoleKit could not be contacted" or similar.

    I can log in using IceVM, but that's not where I want to be.

    I installed GNOME (wash my mouth out...) and it also works, so this appears limited to KDE4.

    (Well, I say works - it comes up and complains that it couldn't start all its fancy stuff, so went into fallback mode).

    Need to say what you have in that box. Try creating a new user and log into KDE it could be old settings in your home

    It might work, but is that realy advisable, to skip a level on using zypper dup?
