[opensuse-support][TW] menus black Plasma screen
Today is not the first time getting black screens trying to use Plasma's app
menu. KDM and XDM are
the only installed DMs. After duping to 20190307 (32bit today, but other TW
installations 64 bit),
first attempt to startx Plasma session produced a black
screen. I killed the
session, deleted content of ~/.cache/, then tried again. Session opened
normally, but attempting to
open an app from menu turned the screen black. I had to move the mouse near
upper right corner and
left click to unblack the screen. Then I right clicked the starter to see what
the menu style is
(non-default, KDE3-style) and the screen turned black again, this time
non-recoverably except to
close the session via remote login. .xsession-errors was last written 2 months
ago. If journal or
dmesg contain clues, I'm missing them. Ctrl-Alt-BS instead of closing the
session powered down the PC.

On reboot IceWM from startx worked as expected.

Reboot without vga=791 or video=1440x900@60 and with 5 produces working KDM and
succeeds to open
IceWM working as expected. Plasma from KDM is still blacking the screen in
similar fashion to
opening from startx. Right click on desktop also blacks, and Ctrl-Alt-BS worked
as expected on last
