For a while now I have this weird issue where, when
logging into KDE after
system boot, KDE is in a weirdly broken state: compositing is disabled (no
wobbly windows, only half my windows are restored (curiously, Firefox always
is, Konsole is always missing), and the desktop itself is not being drawn,
resulting in remnants of moved windows staying on it.
It seems I managed to resolve my issue. It was caused by a borked tmpfiles.d
configuration. I had custom configurations for /tmp and /var/tmp in /etc/
tmpfiles.d/tmp.conf. The reason being that I frequently utilise pytest and
osc, resulting in my /tmp quickly growing in size.
At some point, I suspect moving towards 15.2, it seems the standard
configuration was changed to specify /tmp and /var/tmp in /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/
fs-tmp.conf and /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/fs-var-tmp.conf. This seems to have
somehow caused weird things with systemd-tmpfiles --clean complaining about a
duplicate configuration in its debug output and consequently ignoring it.
I have now moved my custom config for /tmp and /var/tmp to /etc/tmpfiles.d/fs-
tmp.conf and /etc/tmpfiles.d/fs-var-tmp.conf respectivly and everything works
