Thread: Plasma/X login interesting issue

    Default Plasma/X login interesting issue

    Hi all,


    I recently got a new laptop (Lenovo Yoga 520) and I have cloned my \home partition from my old laptop (which runs Leap 42.2 flawlessly) to the new one running Tumbleweed in order to take advantage of the 2-in-1 with stylus functionalities.

    Every driver and hardware seems to be working fine, however a rather interesting issue appear when I reboot/shutdow and try to login again. After the splash screen the display keeps black with only the mouse arrow (which moves normally).

    What I have tested that didn't work:
    1- I can login to IceWM, but sometimes I'm unable to run any application. However, after logging out and logging in to IceWM 2 or 3 times the applications come back to normal on IceWM environment;
    2- Tested multiple kernels 4.9 LTS , 4.11, 4.14 ;
    3- Deleted ~/.cache and reset ~/.config to defaults;
    4- Tried to "killall plasmashell" and "kstart plasmashell", but the usual message about exporting to display appears;
    5- Tried different variations of poweroff, shutdown and reboot commands ;


    The only workaround that has worked until now:
    1- On login screen after a reboot/shutdown I log in outside Plasma/X using Ctrl+Alt+F1, then I come back to GUI login screen with Alt+F7 and type my password. It works everytime!



    I would like some help here.
    Any idea on what might be the cause of this issue/bug?



    Thanks,

    Try creating a new user and then test the behaviour with that user account. Any different?

    1: video driver details?

    Code:
    # inxi -G -c0
    2: display manager in use?

    Code:
    # ps -A | grep dm

    Hi,


    As logging in as a different user worked, I tried to change permissions recursively of \home folder to default.


    It seems that some config files was with read/write permission only for the owner and the rest was set as forbidden.
    So now I think the problem is solved.


    Thank you all
