View Full Version : [kubuntu] plasma won't start in lucid

Hi, everyone

Today, I've updated my kubuntu to lucid beta. Now plasma won't start. I don't see my desktop panel (or that tiny icon in the upper-right corner to add plasma widgets). If I right-click on desktop - nothing happens.

Please, could anyone help. How can I start plasma manualy? Does plasma log it's errors anywhere?

Thanks in advance

Can you run commands using Alt F2?
If so, try to run Konsole and then type

and see what happens.

Wow. Great idea!!! I don't know why that happened, but it results that after upgrade to lucid plasma-desktop has got uninstalled. After installing it, now I have my lovely panel back :-)
Thanks a lot

Hey, I know this is kinda old, but this is happening to me.... whenever I boot up, plasma crashes, and when it's restarted, it flickers and dies... any ideas?
