(In reply to Egbert Eich from comment #7)
So this seems to be a KDE update issue. kde4 doesn't seem to exist any more
after the update. So the DEFAULT_WM is set to an invalid parameter.

Indeed - and as such the current assignee and component (Plasma 5 workspace) is
correct

We do rely on this to be set correctly however.

Makes sense

We could add even more sanity checks and replace the WINDOWMANAGER with a
default when it is obvious that the value in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager is
bogus to ... maybe twm?

That's cruel :) But despite all the cruelty, might be better nevertheless... it
would be nice to fallback to something and inject a dialog into the session,
instructing the careless user/'admin' about why it now 'looks so different to
what was expected') - but I'd rather file this as a new feature, independent of
this bug (which is about updating an old system to TW)
