Bug ID: 370630
Summary: Can't have any existing activities when updating to
5.8.1 or black screen on login
Platform: Neon Packages
Component: Packages User Edition
CC: j...@jriddell.org, neon-b...@kde.org, sit...@kde.org
If you have any Activities set up in Neon and update to version 5.8.1, you get
a black screen once you log in.
The system boots okay, and you can login, but after the logo and spinner
appears for a few moments, you are greeted with a black screen.
Right-clicking on the desktop has no effect. Ctl+Alt+Del shows the shutdown
options. Krunner cannot be accessed.
The only way to prevent this, is to delete all but the default Activity and do
a system reboot before doing the update. Adding a new Activity once 5.8.1 is
installed will cause the black screen again.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update Neon to 5.8.1
Prior Activities should work as they did in version 5.8.0
Happened on both my PC and a HP laptop with dual AMD/ATI graphics card.
Confirmed by other users in Neon forum.
