Dear fellow users,
my computer is currently running on Manjaro KDE edition. It was overall working fine until today, when I installed a number of updates that were recommended by the package manager.
It seems to me that there was already a problem during the update process, because I was suddenly logged out of the KDE session, but the update process continued after I logged back in and eventually finished.
Since I installed the aforementioned updates, KDE often freezes when I try to log in. The progress bar fills up to a degree, but then it stays that way. I noticed that I can still move the mouse cursor in that situation, but that doesn’t help. The only thing I can do about this at the moment is to shut down the computer by pressing and holding the on/off switch and hoping that the problem won’t occur on the next startup.
I would be thankful for any helpful hints, suggestions, etc. to solve my problem!
