Can't run KDE after upgrade

I've upgraded glibsc, filesystem and migrated to systemd. I can't load KDE after it. I didn't find any info about KDE and systemd, but seems systed is the problem. KDM and initializations works without troubles, but kde plasma and desktop doesn't show up. Black screen or wallpaper and cursor is visible. Some of my daemon.log:

Probably I need to show some other log? I'm not sure which exactly.

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

I've dived into systemd and had some progress. One of problems was with conflict between udisk2 and udisk (both were loaded). As far as I understand KDE doesn't support udisk2, so I did systemctl disable udisk2.service. Now there are no failed units:

But it's still not working. Seems now it's dbus problem or so. What do I need to run KDE? How can I figure it out? Any wiki? suggestions?

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

It's weird, but I can run KDE via TWM, however without kwin and plasma. If I launch KDE from KDM it fails while loading.

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

You could try starting KDE via startx, so you could at least rule out an issue with KDM. And maybe I completely don't understand that last log, but you're not trying to run any of this as root, correct?

Correct. I want to make sure that is not permission issue.

I'm not able to run KDE. Without kwin and plasma it works. I tried startx and startkde. More over I can't run apps there (runner isn't plasma?). Pure KDE doesn't load. XFCE does. Seems it's dbus issue. Actually not much were changed, so my previous posts also describe current state. Logs shows some pulseaudio errors, but AFAIK it's ok for KDE. Where can I find the issue out?

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

having the same problem here, it will not fully load.  the screen comes up dark, with only the mouse pointer working.  tried deleting .kde and doing a full install, neither worked.  using lxde atm.

Reinstallation didn't help.

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

I'm thinking my problem is between plasma and nvidia-173xx.  It's on notebook with an nvidia gforce fx go 5700 gpu.  gnome has issues too.  I can run KDE in safe mode at least.

True. It's weird. I use nouveau, so it can't be nvidia-173xx issue.

Re: Can't run KDE after upgrade

System crashes when logging in with KDE Plasma - screen is a blur of wavy lines - keyboard dead and cannot ssh in from another system.

However I can login using KDE Plasma failsafe session.

Old tower system  with AMD 32 bit - Nvidia chipset and GForce 6100 onboard VGA. Using nouveau driver. No xorg.conf.

Any ideas?
