Thread: No user acces to kde whats up?

  1. #1

    Default No user acces to kde whats up?

    Opensuse 12.3 64bit

    I had this happen a week or two ago just reinstalled to try a fresh start and find myself with only root access to KDE after all updates and 3rd party reops/apps needed for multimedia? I have attempted to remove the 3rd party repos and ran and than restarted after a run of zypper dup and still the same issue.

    I have searched but not found this issue so I am stumped and I am not a tech user but usually can get by but not this time.

    Well, can you login to a different session? (click on the "gear" symbol on the login screen to select the session; at least IceWM and twm should be available there)

    And if you are using the proprietary nvidia driver, try to reinstall it. There was a similar thread lately, where this seemingly helped:

    Tried to re-install Nvidia packages no dice.
    Can Log into iceWM.
    Guess I will just use ice for now and wait and if things change in future updates.

    Thanks,

    You could try to rename the .kde4 directory and see if you can login then. (if yes, something's wrong with your kde config)
    Or try explicitely selecting "KDE Plasma Workspace" or "KDE Plasma Workspace (failsafe session)" on the login screen. (maybe the default session is set incorrectly)

    Regarding the nvidia driver:
    You know about the "video" group? (https://www.suse.com/releasenotes/i3...#idm1262519932)
    This shouldn't be necessary anymore after the recent updates, but who knows?

    And to check if your driver is working correctly, please post the output of:
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep render
    (you may have to install the package "Mesa-demo-x" first)

    while logged into iceWM, run this command from a user terminal, and
    paste the results back to this thread, please:

    ls -hal ~/.*authority

    why did you run zypper dup?
    it is *not* a command to be run just anytime you want to...it is a
    VERY dangerous command...can very easily kill your system with it..

    instead, "zypper patch" will bring in all security patches, safely..

    please show us the terminal output *and* input, as well as the
    beginning prompt and exit prompt, from

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions
    here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    and then, maybe someone here can help you reclaim your system _with_
    KDE..

    I think it's safe to say that with your repo setup "zypper dup" won't cause any trouble.
    But I guess your multimedia stuff from Packman has been switched back to the standard openSUSE versions now. But that shouldn't prevent you to login.

    Also your .*authority files look ok. If they would have been owned by root f.e. you wouldn't have been able to login to IceWM as well.

    But what about the things I wrote in my last post?

    that looks ok. (sometime those get [accidentally] owned by root, and
    it messes everything up)
