    I'm not having that problem. But then I'm using the regular Plasma from Leap 15.0 (5.12.6). It maybe take 1 minute from login for everything to show up. It does not take 10 minutes.

    This is with a Dell Inspiron 660 and 8G of memory (Intel graphics).

    yes, my leap15 wit plasma 5.12.6 on the same hardware works well, and also another user on 5.14.90 doesn't takes 10 minutes.
    how can I reset kde 5.14.90 to standard?

    You can disable the extra repos, and then use
    Code:
    zypper dup
    You will probably get conflict about the need to change vendor.

    ...may be, but, if another user works better it should dipend on the user not on a general conflict, is there a way to reset as if it is a new user my plasma?

    So it has the dual graphics card!
    The problem is from grub to login, or from login to active Desktop?
    You tried from the terminal to see what it says
    Code:
    systemd-analyze blame
    post the result

    Then the login manager also changes, install lightdm-slick-greeter when you're done > terminal >
    Code:
    sudo update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager
    and choose lightdm > reboot

    Yes.

    Code:
    rm -rf .cache
    rm -rf .local
    rm -rf .config
    You should do those while not logged in. You can login to Icewm or use CTRL-ALT-F1 to get a terminal login.

    You might want to start with just ".cache". It's possible that clearing out cache, and allowing it to regenerate on the next login will fix the problem.

    If that does not fix it, I would suggest move ".local" and ".config" to elsewhere. I usually create a directory named OLD and move them there. That way you can change your mind, or you can recover parts of the old directories as needed (kmail saved mail, for example).

    Couldn't this be another manifestation of freespace on root partition being exhausted by unneeded old journal versions, or BTRFS snapshots or housekeeping?
