Thread: Upgrade from 42.1 to 42.2 leads to black desktop in Plasma

    Default Upgrade from 42.1 to 42.2 leads to black desktop in Plasma

    Hello,

    I have upgraded by following the instructions provided (https://en.opensuse.org/Upgrade) and it went fine except for my Plasma 5 desktop: When I now login into my user account, I get a black desktop:


    Some observations:
    • I can right-click into it and the menu appears. I might accidently click on a hidden icon and get the respective context menu
    • Changing/re-applying desktop configuration does not change anything
    • Using a newly created user, Plasma 5 loads just fine. Hence, there must be some previous setting that prevent Plasma from loading correctly.


    What can I do to fix this?

    Cheers,
    Quentin

    If it works fine for a new user, try to delete or rename ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc to start with a fresh Plasma configuration.
    This will of course remove all desktop customizations (e.g. wallpaper, plasmoids and their settings), but will not affect other applications.

    Thanks for the hint. I have figured out that the issue was with the composite settings. I had opengl 3.0 before and switching back to 2.0 solved the problem. It's not the first time that I see Leap 42.2 upgrade problems being related to graphics...
