DigiKam hangs at initializing main view

Since some weeks i can't run DigiKam. I don't know exactly after which update it was not working, because I use it not daily. But I remember first update to V7.6 was still working.

When starting DigiKam, the splash screen is hanging at initializing main view and nothing will happen after it.

See screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/or368llav37zr … 7.jpg?dl=0

I tried to uninstall/reinstall and doing a fresh database generation, also I removed old config files and cache. Nothing helped. When I'm doing a fresh install, the DigiKam wizard is working as usual (windows are shown, etc.), but after setting all pre-configuration within the wizard, I have the same problem. It is hanging on splash screen again and the main window is not showing.

I never had problems with DigiKam before this situation.

Very strange is also, that Telegram-desktop had the same problem. It is also not visible anymore - either in taskbar not as a window. Maybe there is a correlation.

Also: No special errors are showing if I running Digikam or telegram in cli.

System:
- Newest Archlinux (of course :-)
- XFCE
- X11

Maybe an 'strace' log can shed some light.

--- SIGCHLD {si_signo=SIGCHLD, si_code=CLD_EXITED, si_pid=48300, si_uid=1000, si_status=0, si_utime=0, si_stime=0} ---

This is the only additional info from 'strace', which I get.
