Title pretty much explains it. I've tried SDDM, Light-DM, and SLiM, in all three cases I am only able to log my user into the Failsafe session. Currently the only other session available is the XSession which is twm. When I attempt to log into that I get dumped immediately back to the DM Login screen. dbus is running, so I know that is not the issue. There are not blatantly visible errors in the sddm.log, Xorg.0.log, or in messages. I am not running systemD, and I've added my user to just about every group imaginable and still nothing.

Any thoughts?

Ok, so I got KDE Plasma 5 installed, and that will launch. Must have been an issue with XSession. Problem solved.
