No plasma deskop after login

Hello together,

I need your help. After login there comes no plasma desktop. Only a black screen and my mouse. But the funktion keys like alt+f2 to start applications as dolphin or firefox are ok. Also I can start yakuake with F12.

please look to this thread into the german part for more details.

I hope, you can help me
thank you :face_with_head_bandage:

What i saw in that post you pointed out is that you have akonadi running ... but there are a couple of problems with it.
See if this will help

This thread seems to treat a similar problem as yours, a problem with cups _ZN8JobModel9updateJobEiRK8KCupsJob (

The solution on the thread is a bit radical and will keep you unable to print
(sudo -R print-manager) so before trying that, first try deleting queued print jobs

cancel -a -x

as suggested here and explained here


Hello, @saedlar93,

you are right. The problem was, that there were two printers in the config. One printer was installed by cups, the other was installed by ksettings -> printer. Thank you very much for your hint.

I don´t know, how does cups installed the printer without my userhandling.

The solution: I deleted the "cups printer", logged out and logged in and the desktop was shown again :grinning::slightly_smiling_face::upside_down_face:

Hello @bogdancovaciu,

thanks for your hint, too.
How can I deactivate akonadi? I think, I don´t need them.
