I installed the proprietary nvidia driver. The installation was correct, the driver is working (direct rendering, nvida-settings app. etc.) But after booting in KDE, I got a black screen with a working cursor. Through click context menu, I can run any application and they are working properly (including graphics) But I do not see the KDE desktop!
Unfortunately, I urgently need a working system and I restored the use of the nouveau driver. Therefore, I can not provide other details on the problem.
What happened and how to cure it when I try to reinstall nvidia driver?

Hey Verdazil,

you may be able to provide us with more information; do you use sddm?
And does your Xorg.0.log tell anything about errors? Do you have a .xinitrc file and
how does it look?

Plus if you search here on the forums you will find many posts with
similar issues all sporting "black screens". You may find something familiar there.

Please tell us more.

Yes, SDDM and without error in Xorg.0.log. I will make a second installation attempt, there will be more information.

I don´t have sddm meaning I do not know the hickups that may occur.
I´d follow this guide https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/SDDM.
Please check whether you have all the USE flags and the proper configuration
as well as the user in the groups video and sddm. You have certainly started the
service [Openrc or Systemd are different] and make sure that the services running on startup.
The usual...
