Bug: KDE Autologin + Android on USB = Crash

idk if I should report a bug here…

As the title says, if there is a Android device connected (usb) during boot process, and SDDM is configured to autologin, then KDE will load only the wallpaper and crashes. No panel, no window, no KRunner. But I can use some shortcuts like Meta+E (dolphin), Ctrl+Alt+T (terminal)

This behaviour happens in X11 and Wayland. And this does NOT happens in Fedora/KDE.

If I disable autologin everything is fine. Same is if I boot without a smartphone connected.

Hi and welcome to the Forum :+1:

It might be related to the software version used on that distro and this one…
KDE can bug out also y/k…

Help others to help you better by:

  1. Providing system info about your hardware by posting program output instead of describing your hardware.
  2. Use new lines when a sentence ends, so it is better readable and followable by others.
  3. If english is not your native language please see:
