    • Curiously, not today – the 29th of July 2021 – last kglobalaccel5 core dump yesterday evening – when logging out …
    • Looking at the user's systemd Journal, it seems that, with Leap 15.3 some users will notice that, kglobalaccel5 dumps core when they log out …
    I've looked in all the logs currently available on my system and can't find any kglobalaccel5 failures similar to yours, just the same sort of crashes with other apps already documented in this thread

    Default Re: No GUIs will open - Qt - Badwindow

    I don't know if this is relevant or not but I compared the output from strace kate from a session where the GUI won't open to one when there is no problem

    Full output from the case when GUI won't open is at https://susepaste.org/89212133, while that from when it's OK is at https://susepaste.org/98262544

    The files are essentially the same until line 1304 and these are the relevant snippets of the output:

    Does the fact that the first sign of the problem is "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key" suggest that it's an Xauthority problem? If so, why would the problem not always occur?

The only window available is a Konsole, which I always leave open when closing down - that works as expected. Even the shutdown dialogue does not work and I have to shutdown by pressing and holding the power button. Normally, on reboot, things are back to normal but on one occasion I had to reboot twice before I got a working session.
    • When you are presented with a black screen, does <Ctrl-Alt-Backspace( 2 times )> kill the X-Server and, present you with a fresh SDDM login screen?
    • Can you start Konsole & Co. from KRunner <Alt-Spacebar>?
    • Regardless of the KDE Session state, does “systemctl poweroff” from a “root” user prompt in a VT (tty1 .. tty6), power off the system?
    • Have you changed the SDDM “HaltCommand” configuration parameter anywhere? – Files either in ‘/usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/’ or ‘/etc/sddm.conf.d/’ …
    • Assuming that, the system partition uses Btrfs as the Filesystem, have the systemd Services “btrfs-balance.service” and “btrfs-scrub.service” been executed recently?

    Question Re: No GUIs will open - Qt - Badwindow

    @pianomalc:

    Searching for “Linux Intel Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics i915” revealed this – <https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=255430>.
    • Is there a “disable loading legacy option ROM” option in the Toshiba UEFI/BIOS?

    There's also the ArchWiki Intel Graphics entry – <https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Intel_graphics> –
    Make sure you do not have nomodeset or vga= as a kernel parameter, since Intel requires kernel mode-setting.

    Question Re: No GUIs will open - Qt - Badwindow

    @pianomalc:

    Does “smartctl” indicate any S.M.A.R.T. issues with the HDD?

    @dcurtisfra
    Just an update - yesterday (29th July) I finally had an occurrence of the failure with kglobalaccel5 - essentially identical to what you were seeing.

    In fact, the data is indicating that, the HDD is almost new –
    • For a 6 year old machine, I would expect values about the half of these values –

    Code:
      9 Power_On_Hours          0x0032   065   065   000    Old_age   Always       -       30856

    241 Total_LBAs_Written      0x0000   100   253   000    Old_age   Offline      -       450443749

    I'm beginning to suspect that, the “kglobalaccel5” issue when logging out, is related to a KDE PIM implementation issue …

    Given what has been described in this Post, I can only suggest the following – given that, the affected user's home directory has been unchanged from one system upgrade to the next – over the years –
    • Clear out the user's ‘~/.cache’ directory – log out – log back in again.
    • Check for old user files in /tmp and /var/tmp.
    • Consider archiving the affected user's home directory – create a new, fresh, home directory for the affected user – the affected user then logs back in and, sets up the KDE Plasma environment – then the user's files are moved from the Archive back to the home directory.
    • The affected user's Firefox bookmarks can be restored from the Archive ‘~/.mozilla/firefox/?????-esr78/bookmarkbackups/’.
    • The affected user's KDE PIM data can usually safely be restored from the Archive to ‘~/.local/share/’ and, the KDE PIM configuration can usually be safely restored to ‘~/.config/’.
    • The super safe method to restore a user's KDE PIM data and configuration is, to use the KDE PIM archive tools and, use KDE PIM to restore those archives to the affected user's new home directory.

    • Is there a “disable loading legacy option ROM” option in the Toshiba UEFI/BIOS?

    There's also the ArchWiki Intel Graphics entry – <https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Intel_graphics> –

    Couldn't find any "disable loading legacy option ROM" option, or anything similar in the UEFI

    Code:
    malcolm@localhost:~> cat /proc/cmdline
    BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.3.18-59.16-default root=UUID=d75d45a9-e9ca-4e64-a82f-ea094b9e0c0b splash=silent resume=/dev/disk/by-uuid/5db0b7c9-8f12-41d8-b675-a53d9caabf4a mitigations=auto quiet

    So I'm not using nomodeset or vga= as kernel parameters
