Description Edvard Fagerholm 2014-03-29 11:39:06 UTC
Description of problem:

After running yum update today I'm unable to log in on the Fedora 20 KDE spin. When KDE's login window pops up, I can type in my username and password, but when I press enter in the password window nothing happens.

If I click on the ">" button same problem. Clicking on the "shutdown" or "restart buttons also does nothing. When I click on the buttons their color change while I hold down the left mouse button, so at least KDE is registering the key press.

I can't see anything in any logs, so I'm not sure if if there is any more useful information that I can provide.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start computer.
2. Wait for login screen to appear.
3. Try to log in.

Switching login manager to slim allows me to login, so the problem is not in KDE, but somewhere in sddm or its related packages. Someone that better understands the graphical login sequence can probably fix the bug report to match the right package.

The default login manager on F20 KDE is KDM, not SDDM, so are you sure you were using SDDM?

Comment 5 Edvard Fagerholm 2014-03-30 12:54:12 UTC
I looked into this a bit. I only reboot the computer maybe once a month and yesterday when I rebooted it due to a power failure, it seemed like the login screen had changed slightly. Looks like this is because the login manager was changed to sddm from kdm.

I haven't installed any new software since installing the machine in January and I've only ran "yum update" every few days or so. It seems like some update must have pulled in sddm as a dependency at some point. I haven't touched systemctl for anything at all except enabling sshd during installation, so I'm a bit mystified how the login manager could have changed.

Anyway, it looks like the bug report is about sddm.
