if you did want more help - can you describe the problem, assumed cause
what you mean by a usable desktop?

Well, I didn't go into it at first because it's probably related to a recent
zypper up I did with (unknowingly) a full root partition, which caused the
upgrade to partially fail. But anyway, the problem is that when I boot
from a snapshot I get as far as the grey screen with three green dots in
the middle, and it doesn't go any further. I can use alt-f1 to switch to a
console though. Is this working as intended, or should SDDM start?

Kind regards,

your on tumbleweed with btrfs and your root is full?
have you disabled quotas?
what does "sudo btrfs filesystem usage -h /" say?
can you also give output of "sudo snapper list"

Yeah, the root was completely filled - at least according to df, which I have
since learned may not be reliable on a btrfs partition, although when I last
upgraded I had a whole slew of errors relating to the device being full. I
already deleted some snapshots manually now, and have upgraded at least once
since. However, the output of your command is:

I have not knowingly disabled quotas - I wouldn't know how.

Kind regards,
