Thread: Tumbleweed with KDE Desktop installed fails to start SDDM and Xorg

  1. Default Tumbleweed with KDE Desktop installed fails to start SDDM and Xorg

    Hi,

    I have just installed Tumbleweed on a VirtualBox VM and I have noticed that when I fire up the VM it won't start SDDM, Xorg or any GUI, rather I am stuck at the command-line. I have tried deleting this VM and creating a new VM with openSUSE Tumbleweed and the KDE Desktop, to check whether I just messed something up on the old VM but no, straight after the OT was installed these Xorg, SDDM and KDE Plasma issues arise. Here is my Xorg.0.log file. The output of lspci is shown in this screenshot.
    Any extra info that is required I will be happy to provide.

    Thanks for your time,
    Brenton

    Just before one of yas points to an obvious reason why I have no GUI, namely that I don't have KDE installed on this VM, I do! I selected KDE in the YaST2 installer I used to install OT. I have also tried running:

    Code:
    zypper in -t pattern kde
    as root, to confirm whether KDE was installed or not and it confirmed that KDE was installed! (See here for the screenshot)
