this, no wallpaper, no panels, no widgets, no right-clicks, super key does nothing.
After updating to the newer Kernel yesterday, I restarted my machine. Everything was fine, until I noticed that my wallpaper wasn’t loading. After a short time, It wasn’t the wallpaper, but the entire dekstop instead. Interacting with it is no use: right-clicking won’t show any options. I’m finding myself with a black background now; but atleast the panel is still here. I didn’t find any solutions online, and I hope asking for help on the forum could lead me to a solution.
I can only see the Plank dock and work via Plank and terminal.

EDIT: This happened when rebooting after performing some pamac updates (I hadn’t updated form a couple weeks).
EDIT 2: Playing around with
plasmashell I got to see my wallpaper blink for a second and some errors, see this
pastebin. Can confirm that
kquitapp5 plasmashell returns
"Application plasmashell could not be found using service org.kde.plasmashell and path /MainApplication." and then
kstart5 plasmashell produces the same output as in the pastebin.
EDIT 3: This might have something to do with me previously using
this workaround for my widgets and messing up with
~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc. I have disabled the script and rebooyted, and I have also tried deleting the file but the issue persists.
Just finished updating my production machine here. Using KDE Plasma on Manjaro Mikah 20.1 with linux58 kernel. Same issue; plasmashell crashed upon reboot after updating. Followed the suggestion to remove eventcalendar and did systemctl reboot. Voila, plasmashell is working back as it should be. Loosing the Event Calendar is a bit of a bummer though. I used it quite frequently. I sure hope it’ll get fixed verily soon.

Maybe this will help you…

Do you use eventcalendar widgget? I beieve it is about the widget.
Removing the widget may fix the problem:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.eventcalendar
Then you can install eventcalendar v.69 from AUR, as its developer informs.
The issue is discussed here in several posts:

Thanks! It was indeed due to the Event Calendar widget. Everything’s back on its right place now. I will definitely try to use the v.69 from AUR as I really liked the widget.
EDIT: Version 69 from AUR works perfectly!
EDIT 2: Well, not perfectly. For some reason I’m not able wo make the key binding work. It becomes “None” again after saving changes.

Thank you, I had the same issue and this was just the solution I was looking for. I’ll give a try to the v.69, I hope it has the same functionality because I use it a lot.
