Thread: OpenSUSE liveCD 15 Leap KDE does not start

  1. #1

    Default OpenSUSE liveCD 15 Leap KDE does not start

    Hi, I downloaded openSUSE-Leap-15.0-KDE-Live-x86_64-Current.iso and started it under VirtualBox to try, but unfortunately it does not start KDE, but instead loads into terminal mode login prompt where I am able to login using root/no password.

    How can I enable KDE in live CD?
    Isn't it supposed to be started by default?

    My VM details:

    Default Re: OpenSUSE liveCD 15 Leap KDE does not start

    did you try it on real hardware not virtual one
    as it is a live disk it won't do anything to your system

    No, I didn't. It is inconvinient trying distro from USB stick or burning the whole CD for that. I just want to see how the latest release feels. This is the very first liveCD that does not work under VM.

    I have just tried openSUSE-Tumbleweed-KDE-Live-x86_64-Snapshot20180523-Media.iso - and this works fine.

    openSUSE-Leap-15.0-KDE-Live-x86_64-Snapshot17.8-Media.iso still boots into terminal text login mode.

    I have/had the same problem - try this:
    login: root
    startx

    That should start KDE - There is not much of the usual applications on the live DVD though. I missed things like vncserver, libre-office, ....
