black screen after updating KDE

Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:37 am
Hi.
Sorry for my english...

I'm using Fedora 18 686 and KDE Plasma 4.9.5.
Last time I updated Fedora KDE started in a black screen. I can see the mouse
and the window for Alt+Tab (when I press Alt+Tab). Also the key combinations
which I previously set for a few applications like Firefox, Opera, Krusader work...
That's how I saw that KDE version is now 4.10.1.
In that Fedora update list there were a lot of "kde*" updates. Also there were a few
"kernel*" but they are not the cause (I unchecked them before updating but no change).
I have a preupdate backup which starts fine so it's not such a big problem (for
now) but still I want to know what's wrong and how to fix it - because not fixing = giving up
to Fedora updates which in long run is no good...
Thank you for any help.

Regards, Cosmin

try turning off composting alt+shift+F12

did your graphics drivers get upgraded when upgrading Fedora?

what's you graphics setup?
Code: Select all
glxinfo | grep OpenGL


OpenSuse 13.1 x64, KDE 4.12.x

Thank you.

Turning off composting with alt+shift+F12 doesn't help.

I have a NVidia video card and I have installed the NVidia drivers (some time
ago).
But it doesn't seem to be the usual problem of those drivers (KDE freezing
at startup).
Instead I see KDE loading fine and, just in the moment in which it should
gradually switch to desktop it gradually goes into black.
Here is the updates list:

when posting a long list please use code tags
Code: Select all

did you update the Nvidia drivers ? they need to be compiled against the Kernel being used

Re: black screen after updating KDE

Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:34 pm
Sorry, I used [quote]. It's fixed now.

First time I updated Fedora I tried with the kernel update also. Next times I tried without it. No change. So if I didn't changed the kernel, the video driver doesn't need an update...
Anyway the NVidia drivers are installed with akmod so I don't have to do anything manually. I have done dozens of these automatic updates...
For example now I am in the KDE after update, even if I don't have desktop, I can see the mouse and the applications (Krusader, Opera, Firefox and so on) are running fine. Would that be possible without the video driver...?

But if you think I should update the driver please show me how...

Re: black screen after updating KDE

in a virtual terminal (alt+ctrl+F1) with no kde session running try renaming kwinrc ~/.kde[4]/share/config/kwinrc and then start KDE, maybe resetting kwin to defaults will help

Done that, I don't see any change...

old Kwinrc:

can you create a new user to test

if the new user works then:
1) reset plasma to defaults, we'll be backing them up so they can be restored
Code: Select all
kquitapp plasma-desktop
 sleep 20s
 mkdir -p $HOME/plasma-config/
 mv $(kde4-config --localprefix)/share/config/plasma-desktop* $HOME/plasma-config/
plasma-desktop &


2) rename ~/.kde[4] and restart kde which is obviously extreme

Yes, with a new user KDE starts fine.

With the old user when I try "kquitapp plasma-desktop" in console it says:
kquitapp(2832): "Application plasma-desktop could not be found using service org.kde.plasma-desktop and path /MainApplication."
Strange...

When I tried to rename ~/.kde it started fine also (with the default configuration, of course).

Re: black screen after updating KDE

was the kquitapp error run in virtual kconsole?
- If so my bad as plasma-desktop runs only in a session, just run the mkdir and mv lines
- if run in a KDE session then plasma-desktop not started, try starting it manually wif alt+F2 if krunner works

It was in a KDE session.
I tried to start plasma-desktop in krunner, it didn't start.
I tried in a normal konsole (started with F2 in Krusader). It shows this:

I tried those 2 commands in a virtual konsole, I had to create a plasma-desktop folder in $HOME/plasma-config.
Anyway, it moved the config files and now KDE starts fine but with the default configuration.
Seems that what it's wrong is in those files.

Later edit:
Seems like "plasma-desktop-appletsrc" is the problem. The moment I copied this file back, KDE started again with a black screen.
But I don't know which 4.9.5 settings are incompatible with 4.10.1 (since I'm not an expert in KDE). Could you please help me find...? Thank you.

In this case, Plasma Desktop is definitely crashing.
Are you able to run "plasma-desktop" with your original configuration files from 4.9.5 and see where it is crashing?
The output may be helpful in this instance.

Sure, I will do that. But, like I said, I'm no expert :( so could you please tell me how to do that..? Thank you.

Re: black screen after updating KDE

First, restore your original configuration files. When you login normally, you should have a black screen.
This is the failure of Plasma Desktop to startup.

Next, open Konsole and run "plasma-desktop".
In this instance, it will either succeed (and you will get a desktop) or it will fail, likely with a message such as "plasma-desktop crashing.." or similar.
If this occurs, please pastebin the output you got from the command, and post a link to the pastebin here.
