Description Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2020-08-16 00:40:51 UTC
I followed the 5.7.2 KDE5 section here https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x11-wm.html On a freshly installed 13-CURRENT VM I:
1. Installed x11/kde5 and x11/sddm
2. Added the /proc line
3. Added 3 lines to /etc/rc.conf
4. Rebooted

The login prompt appears, and after login/password combination is entered the colorful wallpaper is shown and nothing else appears.
I was expecting to see the "Start" button and at least one panel.

What might be wrong?

Can you put

exec ck-launch-session startplasma-x11

into ~/.xinitrc file and run startx? Does this produce the same symptom?
