    This comment is pretty unhelpful without pointing out what compositor (and version) you were using.

    Thanks folks, I'll look into the free space issue. On first glance it looks like an SDDM problem, not a Plasma problem. So technically it's not a KDE issue

    Of course any competent system administrator knows that.
    Problem is that many companies do not have on-site system administrator. They call the support desk and give remote access. But they can't do it, if they can't login to graphical session.

    Have you ever tried to give such support by phone? Have the regular user switch to console, give them root password and instruct them to type "rm" commands? Have them read back the error message? Is this even a good idea? How dangerous is that?
    And then btrfs does not give you free space even if you delete the files?
    You instruct the user over the phone to mount an extra disk with free space and do tree balancing. To people who don't distinguish slash from backslash. Good luck with that.

    This happened in the past, we are talking 5 to 20 years; I use KDE since the beginning of time :-)
    Those bugs are not relevant to KDE6, but it was useful having a single directory which could be cleaned and all KDE settings were reset.

    This was happening since forever and is causing a lot of problems. Mostly people cry for help in forums, without filing a Bugzilla ticket.

    In combination with other bad design choices in Linux system components, this makes desktop Linux unreliable and and difficult to administer:
    Cups does not clean /var/spool/cups, so any system where people do actual work will eventually run out of space
    Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 and later: Oracle Linux: How to Clear Up /var/spool/cups After Print Job Completes

    Once btrfs filesytem is 100% full, you do not get free space even after deleting the files to regain space. This happens because it needs to balance trees and it needs free disk space to do it :-)
    On my system df -h reports that the root file system is full (100% Available 0) and also btrfs fi usage / tells me that all of the space is allocated. After a restart it could not even bring up the


    None of this is your fault, thanks for all your hard work!

    The full disk issue is quite common. I experienced it multiple times. It is documented even in the Archlinux wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/SDDM#Blank_screen_with_cursor,_but_no_greeter_show s . Not sure about a bug report, I don't look at them very often as most of my bug reports ended up in the nirvana.
