no desktop after login

Hello from new netrunner rolling user.
Installed from ISO 15.09 64 Bit.
Happy to report successful install with non free drivers (nvidia 340.xx series)

Alas when graphical login is reached and username and password are entered only a black screen appears.

I can reach tty logins OK if I need to do anything from there to kickstart or repair the graphical environment.

The rolling desktop looks good - pity the last time I saw the desktop was in live mode!

Here’s hoping,


update: the desktop took longer to load than I expected. Sorry about that - all good

The first time plasma loads it needs to set up some user files, etc. this can sometimes take a bit.
