I am unable to login to KDE with my regular user account I have on my 11.1 system. I'm wondering if I should just upgrade my system to 11.2 and install KDE 5 Plasma as a work-around because I have no kdmrc to allow for user/root logins anyway. TIA --kwa71
Can you log onto the system at all? So if you switch to a console (control-alt-f1 for example) and try there?
Upgrading probably won't do you much good (depends) because if there's a configuration problem then that won't just disappear on its own. It's quite likely that the new version will simply show the same symptoms
Ok then. Where are the log files supposed to be for KDE 4.14.3 under 11.1? I can try and "cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit https://forums.freebsd.org" but I don't know where that file is going to go so I'm at a loss with that one. TIA --kwa71
To my knowledge KDE doesn't produce any logfiles. At best you may find some in ~/.kde4 but I somewhat doubt that. However, you may have /var/log/kdm.log which might be able to shed some more info on this.
That was my problem. I thought Xorg was installed because KDE make install clean only installed xorg-server and not xorg. I'm wondering now if I have to start a new thread here or in the KDE forum now because KDE doesn't fully load. I get no start bar just an xterm. Please let me know where I should take care of this.
