today I upgraded my system from stable to the current testing version. I think almost everything went okay except that Plasma now doesn't work at all.
When I try to launch Plasma from KDM I get a black screen and two windows. One of them says that the system icon cannot be found. The other one states that Plasma could not start, specifically:
- Code: Select all
All shell packages missing. This is an installation issue, please contact your distribution.
As per https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=834593 I looked whether I have
plasma-desktop and plasma-desktop-data
installed. As far as I can tell both of these packages have been installed when I did apt-get dist-upgrade and /var/log/apt/history.log seems to indicate the same thing.
However, I still cannot launch Plasma, since the I get the issue that I have described above. After doing apt-get install --reinstall and dpkg-reconfigure with these packages the issue still persists.
Any hints? Unfortunately I'm not even sure where to start looking for the necessary log files as to figure out what goes wrong.
