Thread: KDE on Tumbleweed crashes

  1. #1

    Default KDE on Tumbleweed crashes

    After some month w/o dup I finally did one last week and since then KDE crashes every second day. I would say while switching windows or clicking on the dock.

    I can only move the mouse but no keys work. I also cannot switch to the text consoles.

    I can log in remote.

    killall plasmashell has no effect.

    journalctl (w/o options) gives no hint.

    On each crash I do a zypper dup before rebooting, up to now without effect.

    My home is 8 years old. I the past legacy configs were an issue.

    Any hints on how I can track down the issue?

    Thanks

    Any extra repos involved?
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Does the problem arise for a new user? If so, the culprit is in the system, if not, in your homedir

    I don't think it is from the repos, I assume it is from KDE

    There is no new user involved. How shall I check the logs for crash messages?

    Thanks!

    could you say if your on intel grahics? intel was ok for 2 years until maybe 2 months ago when kwin and x org started to crash every day or so, last week removed the intel driver + recent TW updates and things 'seem' to be much better.

    Maybe you can try to change Rendering Backend in
    System Settings>Display and Monitor> Compositor

    I have a nvidia graphic card and since I unchecked "allow applications to block compositing" and I set to OpenGL3.1 I didnt get any crashes

    I have nvidia with nuveau. I just applied the suggested settings. Hopefully it works

    Thanks so far!

    Yesterday I had the KDE freeze again - I was not much on the computer the last days.

    I was just task switching with the dock. Up to recently I did have the KDE freeze.

    My keyboard and mouse clicking is dead. So no text console but moving of the mouse pointer. I can also login by ssh from remote.

    Also my krunner regularly crashes, but krunner I just need to restart.

    Does anybody have a hint for logs to lock into?

    I suspect old configuration. What shall I delete?

    Thanks!

    Fabian

    Since you suspect a user configuration, try creating a new user and log in to that account. Check the stability there. Many of the config files are located in ~/.config/ (*rc files) and various others in /.local/share/.

    further to my last post i also deleted the contents of ~/.cache. I have only had 1 crash in 2 weeks now rather than daily.

    Mine's been randomly freezing on screen lock for about 2 months. Then I have to log in over ssh and reboot the machine. Only happens once every couple weeks, so I've just been living with it, plus could be related to nVidia driver.
