No plasma interface with kernel 6.9 + Nvidia gpu + Wayland

If you encouter a black screen with no inteface after login in, it’s probably a problem with simpledrm loading.

To solve it add nvidia_drm.fbdev=1 to /etc/default/grub
in the line begining with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" .
Verify that you also have nvidia_drm.modeset=1 in the same line.
Then exec sudo update-grub

Also, verify that you have nvidia_drm in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf in the MODULES= or HOOKS= line.
Exemple :

MODULES=(nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm)

If it was not present, then run sudo mkinitcpio -P after adding it.

The default KDE Plasma session has been changed to X11

As of Plasma 6, KDE decided to make Wayland the default. However, since issues were discovered, we have reverted the default to X11. Users are free to choose whichever works best for them.

Previous testing threads:

The update of June 11, 2024.
I use AMD graphic card.
This update killed the Wayland session completely.

  1. I updated my Manjaro OS, 2. Rebooted on kernel 6.9.3, 3 Inserted password on the Welcome screen. 4. Got a highly distorted image and the blinking screen. 5. Rebooted and changed the session to the X11 one, everything was OK. So no way to login under Wayland after today’s update.

Confirmed: Wayland session is impossible for me.

Can not confirm, same kernel, AMD graphic card. Autologin.
test: turn off autologin, reboot, try x11, reboot, try wayland…

I have an issue with a flatpak package. Though, i do not know if the issue occurs with every flatpak app because i have only one.

Nonetheless, KeePassXC does not start anymore since the update.
It’s probably due to Nvidia update, here is the error.

Apparently, there is an issue with GLX module. Do not know how to resolve it.
In /var/log/Xorg.0.log, there is no error.

Oh my godness !! Of course, it has not been updated :pray:

EDIT : Problem resolved, thank you :slight_smile:

A post was split to a new topic: How can I change screen resolution at boot

Cannot confirm this. Might be a specific issue with the new mesa version and your Graphics card series/model.
7900XT here

Downgraded Plymouth to 22.02.122-18 and everythign is back to normal. Seems to be an issue with the newer version included in this update.

Everything seems to be OK. I have AMD hybrid graphics, so the system runs on Ryzen and there is no issue with Wayland. I even launched a game to see if the dGPU has problem in such setting - there was none.

Not really an issue but the reboot after the update took quite a bit of time, until I pressed Control+Alt+Delete then it restarted again and I got relatively quickly into the login screen.
Not sure if it hang itself a bit or if it just took a while and restarted just when I pressed Contr.+Alt+Del.

i have two desktops, both with nvidia cards, connected with a physical displayport kvm switch. i’ve never had a problem switching between them before this update. the one still on linux66-nvidia 550.90.07-2 is fine with swapping back and forth, but the one i updated to linux66-nvidia 550.90.07-3 can no longer pick up the x session after a swap. it goes into powersave mode. i can still access ttys on that machine, in order to reboot. i don’t know a cli command to wake the x session. this machine has no other graphics: the built-in is disabled in bios.
