Hello Patrick:

I just tried this and there are 2 things and I did the following based on
your recommendation: 1) Boot to Linux, see plasma login screen
2) Hot key to a console, check to see if the offending file exists and
remove it as follows: 2a) Log in as root
2b) ls /usr/lib/systemd/user/
2c) rm /usr/lib/systemd/user/
3) Hot key back to the plasma window
4) Log in

So that resolved the problem in this e-mail, but it also appears to allow me
to login to my wireless network. I rebooted and the offending
/usr/lib/systemd/user/ was not recreated.

While I can't prove it, I think I typed my password correctly on the initial
log in attempt both on the initial and follow up test, but it was rejected.
I got in on the 1st retry on each test.

This is a huge improvement, I'll comment on

Hello All:

I'm experiencing an inconvenience with plasma in OpenSuse Tumbleweed with
recent updates (as of this morning, 10/29/2017). The symptom I see is
when I enter my password into plasma the plasma screen hangs, but the
mouse cursor is responsive. I cannot enter text in the password form,
nor does clicking on any of the icons trigger a response.
Unlike, I am able
to hot key into a console window. After I do init 3, and then init 5 I
can log in. After logging in the network connection does not work (but
that was reported in a different e-mail to this list).

Have other people experienced this recently, is there a known work around,
or is this a known problem? What logs would help diagnose this (I need
to boot into windows to post here, so any journalctl guidance would

Sorry to post so many e-mails, but I'm trying to keep to one issue per
e-mail and I apologize if this is redundant but a previous attempt to
post this may have been blocked due to http content, trying plaintext
this time.
fyi: your editor is not wrapping your lines <78 chars

look at:

may help..
do: rm /usr/lib/systemd/user/

Just wondering: how do you update your TW ?
