This morning I did the usual weekly "zypper up" to bring my desktop up
to date. I am subscribed to KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2,
KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2 repos, and until today I was a very

KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2 without matching updates to

As a result, after zypper up, I am left with an unusable desktop.
After login, all I see is white background with a transparent
container for each plasmoid. Each container contains a big red error

folderview" (or "comic", or "calculator" or "nowplaying" or
"weather".). There is no taskbar.

try to restart plasma from konsole using "kquitapp plasma; plasma", it
prints out the following message:
<unknown program name>(32456)/: "application plasma could not be found
using service org.kde.plasma and path /MainApplication"
plasma: command not found
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to recover from this?
