Solution found yet? In previous reply I forgot to include suggestion to
disable/remove Plymouth if you haven't already.

did you reboot in the mean time? after an update some apps are often
broken before reboot

I tried rebooting. Actually this persisted not only past a reboot but
yet another kernel update and two more reboots.

Then, for no apparent reason, it cleared up - ALMOST.

Now my fonts on the CLT-ALT-Fn logins are very small and the last few
lines that scroll to the bottom don't display. That is the screen
buffer is larger than the display .. have i got that right.

This is a different front from not only before the whole problem arose
but a different font from the logs that were were on all the non-X11
Ctl-Alt-Fn screens when I first reported this problem.

Oh, and when I boot now and login to the GUI, the screen display is
shifted to the left and I have to reset it with lxrandr.

This is plain screwy. Other than new kernel and regular updates I've
done nothing that could account for these changes.

However, once again the blind login and echo produces something.
So its a display problem, but obviously not with the display card and
not one that affect the use of the X11/KDE.
