Description fferdasy067ab 2015-09-23 06:19:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Instead of my plasma desktop only  a black screen appears with a free movable
mouse pointer.

When I change my login shell from tcsh to bash everthing works
and my normal desktop appears.

I suppose that some scripts need bash to work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I updated on  Mon Sep 21 23:51:27 2015 the last time 
the kf5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login shell tcsh
2. startkde

Actual results:
  a black screen appears with a free movable
mouse pointer.
The startup works normal.

Expected results:
my normal desktop appears after startup

Additional info:

In my .xsession-error 
I read that $DISPLAY is not set, I thought that 
probably plasma starts in my tcsh but need bash. 

from my .xsession-error

This has nothing to do with the login shell. You cannot run "startkde" on its own, you have to run "startx startkde" to start KDE Plasma from the command line.
