KDE login screen changed, won't update

I rebooted after an update this pm to get the attached screen.

KDE lets me type my password in but ignores the enter key.

The 'session' box is blank.

I can get into the command line screen OK using CTRL-ALT-F2, just don't know what to do.

Anyone else having this prob?

Re: KDE login screen changed, won't update

Hey swashplate,

I had the same issue today after installing updates. I'm now able to login again but can't tell you why. Here are a few of the things I did:

- Changed password on my user account
- Booted into an older kernel
- Freed up some space on the HD
- A couple more reboots

For reference I'm on an older i7 laptop with an AMD gpu. I'm running the KDE respin of Fedora 25.

Anyone else having this issue?

Re: KDE login screen changed, won't update

After some googling, I did sudo dnf groupinstall kde desktop environment

This said I already had KDE but installed some more packages.

startx then booted into kde

But I had to repeat this after doing an update that involved a new kernel.

Maybe a bug? hope it gets fixed
