Thread: Desktop , start menu and taskbar crashing

  1. #1

    Question Desktop , start menu and taskbar crashing

    I've just upgraded from Leap 42.1 to 42.2. Everything seemed fine and worked as it should, but a couple of days ago the task bar and start menu doesn't show when logging in and the desktop itself (background image) crashes/quits after a few seconds. Tried to look in various log files under /var/log but couldn't find anything. KDE/Plasma 5.

    Standard repos only + Nvidia.

    Anybody else have similar experience? How can I investigate this for a solution?

    I wonder if we have a similar issue? I posted this yesterday:

    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...really-stuck-)

    I've tried removing all .* files from my home directory but still can't get a desktop session (I see just the wallpaper and the mouse). Logging in to another Leap 42.2 machine works fine (with the same NIS user account). I can successfully log in to the machine with another local user account.

    I'm sorry I'm not helping you, just saying that there's an issue somewhere...

    Please post the output of glxinfo (package Mesa-demo-x) to see whether nvidia's OpenGL support is acutally working.

    Also it may give a clue if you run "plasmashell" in a terminal window. (you should still be able to reach krunner via Alt+F2 or Alt+Space to run applications, if not login to IceWM e.g. and try there)

    Although, *everybody* should be affected then and there would have been a lot more "complaints" and bug reports already.

    Still, try to uninstall kde-print-manager and see if it helps.

    The glxinfo output looks ok.

    That was the problem! Thanks a lot!

    My print setup contains 4 Google print entries in addition to 2 local printers. That might be the reason?

    Normally not I suppose, but there may be a bug somewhere (in cups or in kde-print-manager) that's triggered by your specific setup.

    First thing I would check though is which exact cups version you have installed (and from where):
    Code:
    rpm -qi cups-libs

    Version : 1.7.5
    ...
    Distribution: openSUSE Leap 42.2

    Since I've upgraded the system probably since around opensuse 9.x or something might this be an issue:
    Code:
    CUPS >= 1.6 has major incompatible changes compared to CUPS 1.5.
    After a version upgrade to CUPS >= 1.6 printing in the network
    would no longer work as it did up to CUPS 1.5.
