Installed Gentoo in dual boot with Windows using Plasma profile on amd64 laptop. After installation emerged libreoffice, chromium and plasma-meta. Used Gen kernel for build.

Can not get plasma to start. If I edit .xinitrc to exec startkde, I get to the plasma desktop but can't use the mouse. I can interact with keyboard.

What am I missing?

I followed the plasma Gentoo guide but it was more for an upgrade from kde4 then a fresh install.

I did try changing xinitrc to exec sddm but that just gets me a blank screen with a flashing cursor.

There's a guide for that: SDDM Guide

Also make sure you have configured evdev: Evdev Guide
