In  my system which still has no panel after logging in to plasma with kernel
4.7.4-1 in arch linux, the hardware for graphics is:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen
Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 2036
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 32
        Memory at f7800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
        Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
        I/O ports at f000 [size=64]
        [virtual] Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: i915
        Kernel modules: i915

I will attach the journal and Xorg logs immediately after booting to kernel
4.7.4-1, and with all packages up to date. Presumably some change to the Intel
graphics driver in the kernel once 4.7 was released is not compatible with
plasma frameworks up to and including version 5.26.0-1. This is also with the
latest available plasma-desktop version 5.7.5-1

The system boots normally to the sddm greeter screen, but when I log in to the
plasma desktop the progress bar stops at about 85% for 30 seconds, and then
fades away with a second progress bar and splash visible for a short time
before then fading away, and leaving only a desktop background bu no panel.
Right clicking on the desktop does allow starting a konsole window at that
point from which the log files can be stored, and other programs can be started
normally, as well as choosing to logout or restart using right click.
