Plasma 6 upgrade on laptop cannot set window manager theme KDE Breeze

The recent TW update to install, inter alia, Plasma 6 has forced my laptop system to use IceWM. When I log in there is an error massage concerning the theme breeze.

I understand but cannot find any KDE theme which works so am stuck with IceWM.
Does anybody have a fix for this?

Does
plasma-apply-lookandfeel --list

Show a theme you can select like:

plasma-apply-lookandfeel -a org.kde.breezedark.desktop

I’d assume moving ~/.config/ directory might remove some old config/conflict but of course, you will have other folders under there with preferences you’d reset

Check that you have plasma6-desktop and plasma6-workspace installed.
I was stuck in IceWM and installing those pulled all of the needed files. Then do a zypper dup just to make sure.

Also, at the login screen, select Plasma down at the bottom or it’ll just log you into IceWM again.

Hi all,
It seems that my first run of zypper dup from tty terminal was not enough. After much time wasted I did another zypper dup and loh and behold another 160+ updates and another reboot was required.

Glad to say I now have my opensuse desktop up and running as usual.
