KDE plasma login

The KDE login page does not appear/open.

Only the debian linux login page is

vailable. So,I couldn't use the packages.

How the problem can be solved?

With Debian I assume you mean the console based(command line) login screen.

This could have been due to various reasons:

1) Low disk space in the home directory and/or root directory

Solution: Login through the debian console and delete some large files using rm command. Restart the laptop.

2) Filesystem permissions altered

Solution: Login through the console and run this at the home directory "sudo chown -R $USER.$USER . "
Restart the laptop.

3) Issue with X server

Solution: Login through console and run 'startx' command, see if you get the KDE login screen

Dear Srikant,

I have followed your instructions, but it

didn't work. Most probably the whole KDE

Plasma and the other installed softwares 

are removed from the laptop. All these are to 

installed again. Please help how it could be done.

You may try the answer in this link to install from scratch, please make sure you backup any important files(you can do it from Debian console using command line):

Dear Srikant,

This also does not work. After typing this in the command line, the message is "No such file or directory".

So, please tell me what will be the next step.

You need to download the ISO file on a separate laptop, mobile data may not be sufficient to download such a large file.
