Thread: Stuck in IceWM cannot get back to KDE.

  1. #1

    Default Stuck in IceWM cannot get back to KDE.

    So today I accidentally broke KDE Plasma. I tried fixing it by reverting usign snapshots but that didn't work at all and now I'm in Ice WM. I tried uninstalling and installing KDE back but that didn't work.
    I also do not have KDE in the login screen. I tried also changing the alternatives in the YaST alternatives but that didn't chgange anything.

    As far as I know, plasma should be selectable on the login screen based on the presence of "/usr/share/xsessions/plasma5.desktop".

    But perhaps you were switched to "xdm" for the login screen, and that probably doesn't give choices. If that's the problem, then you need to revert to using "sddm" with
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config default-displaymanager
    openSUSE Leap 15.2; KDE Plasma 5.18.5;

    I've switched to sddm and the only options there are IceWM and TWM.

    I assume that by the "I tried uninstalling and installing KDE back" you managed to let the system forget it is available. But as details on what you did fail, I assume people can not say much about that.
    I assume you must explain much more about what you exactly did.

    Okay I'm gonna go from the beggining.
    Everything started when linux asked me if I want to remove 150 packages while I was trying to make mp4 videos work.
    And me unknowingly pressed yes. And then KDE started breaking. After that I reverted in YaST to fix KDE then restarted and ended up in this windows XP desktop thing.
    Then I went into YaST software manager and unchecked the big KDE boxes. (Not everything on the right just the big ones on the left side). Then installed again. Restarted. And this desktop still exists.

    Still vague enough .

    Let us start with a list of repos:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    You have the wrong Packman Essentials (#6) repo. It is a 15.0 one. But you have already Packman complete (#5), thus you can remove it.

    And what is that packagemanager repo for?

    #4 and #12 are the same. Remove one (maybe #4).

    A bit of a mess isn't it?

    I hope your repo list is correct now (you did not present us the new version for inspection).

    As I have no idea what you exactly did (and you do not know either), I can only suggest things.

    You could use YaST > Software > Software Management, use the Pattern view, check the KDE pattern and see if all that belongs to it is installed.
