Package: kde-plasma-desktop
Version: 5:91
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

On the 15th of September I have upgraded some packages

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Next time when I started this computer, after the sddm login screen when I
successfully log in, I can see a KDE loading splash screen as expected, but
after the spalsh screen I see only a blank black screen, with the mouse pointer
on the left edge. I can move the pointer up and down, but it doesn't move

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

A working system

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I can switch to the console with ctrl-alt-Fn and log in there. I could only
restart the computer, could not find a way to fix KDE.  I have removed every
KDE and X packages, then I installed LXDE desktop. With LXDE the system works.

I reinstalled task-desktop-kde.  Now in sddm I have the option to select plasma
or lxde (among some other things). If I select LXDE it works. If I select
Plasma, I have the same issue as before.
