    Why are you using both KF5 and Qt5 repos? Latest stable packages will always be submitted to Tumbleweed ASAP.
    This is the reason why Plasma doesn't start for you. You cannot safely upgrade to Qt 5.4 w/o rebuilding KF5 against it. If you remove the 2 mentioned repos, and do a zypper dup, it should work for you then.

    And can you please next time use the Tumbleweed, Evergreen and PreRelease/Beta forum for questions about those subjects. That is the place where your fellow users are and where you will have a better chance to get a good answer then here.
