KDE broken on fresh install


I’ve been using OpenSuse Leap for a few years now, and I wanted to give Tumbleweed a try.
Install went well, and just didn’t format my /home partition.

When I log in, Plasma doesn’t start and little purple terminal pops out instead as you can see.

Any idea?

Thanks a lot.


There is some problem with nVidia kmod on linux-6.0.0-1.

Try installing -

zypper install --oldpackage kernel-default-5.19.13-1.1.x86_64

If it is already on your system then go to yast2 bootloader and select it as your default kernel and reboot.

Hm, I am not sure, but it could be that the old KDE configurations files do not match with the newer KDE version you now have. Normally, when one upgrades from an up-to-date Leap version to the next, that is not a problem. New KDE will then see the old file(s) and convert them (if that is to be done). But the step from Leap to Tumbleweed might be to great.

You could try to create a new user (from the console login at e.g. Ctrl-Alt-F1) with yast and then see if that user works.

You could also rename the configuration files of the user (.config, .local, I am not sure that is all) and then log-out - log-in.

That was a good idea.
I simply deleted my ~/.kde folder and it works.

Thank you!

Nice it works. Enjoy!
