After I updated my system (many packages updated), when I type my password in the login screen, it pauses for a few seconds, clears the password box, and nothing happens. I tried this using a different user, and the same thing happens. I also tried at the command line (ctrl+alt+F2), there it says “Login incorrect”.
I followed some info in the stable release announcement about managing my pacnew and pacsave files, but there was no change, after rebooting.
I am running 5.8 with KDE/Plasma.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
