I just finished installing KDE 5/Plasma with this guide https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/KDE/Plasma_5_upgrade and i have one serious issue... I can't start plasma, only black screen with no cursor.
If i try manually i get this:
$Display is not set or cannot connect to the X server.
(II) DAEMON: Initializing...
(II) DAEMON: Starting...
(II) DAEMON: Adding new display to 1 on vt 7 ...
(II) DAEMON: Adding cookie to "./:1"
(WW) DAEMON: Failed to change owner of auth file.
(II) DEAMON: Display server starting...
(EE)DEAMON: Failed to start display server process.
ps. KDE 4 was working fine, all this shit happened after i upgrade to 5.
ps2. Sorry for my eng.
Next weird thing, xserver is actually working, when i run startx i can see xterm... and when i run kdestart in xterm plasma is loading... WTF?
Adding sddm to video group fix the problem.
