I am just getting systemd configured on my amd64 system. I am now at the point where I have sddm starting up as the display manager. It comes up and the display works. When I log in, the appropriate window system does not start up. Instead the screen blanks for a period of time and then the sddm window returns.

I had similar behavior with xdm.

I'm sure there is some service that I have failed to start, but this doesn't seem to be covered in the systemd wiki or the X wikis that I have seen.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Does it work for a fresh account? May need to clean up hacks... Are you setting the session through the display manager?

I have since decided that the problem is that the RAID 1 array containing my home directory is not mounted. Once I resolve that problem, I may have some more hope of getting KDE running.
