Freezing at login screen after hitting login

Every time I try to login to my user account, the login screen freezes and won't progress any farther, I've got no clue why. I can login to the root account just fine, I can use the terminal as well. It only happens when I try to login to the user account its self. I've tried systemctl default to no avail. I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to run into a wall with no clue what to do next. I'm pretty new to Linux so, any help is really appreciated.

  • Is it a new installation?
  • Has it worked before?
    • If yes, what have you changed or done before it breaks?
    • If no, maybe a re-installation is better, just give more HW info to get advice.
  • With your "root" login, did you mean in KDE GUI session?
  • Have you checked journal for relevant messages/info?

inxi -Faxxxz
journalctl -b -p3 --no-pager --no-hostname
journalctl -g sddm --no-pager --no-hostname

You might want to create a new user and try if you can login with that.
