OK, sorry for the vague subject.

As I said, I switched from consolekit to elogind so that I could try out Wayland. It worked, but the lack of touchpad support and sluggish graphics made me switch back.

Only now, things are broken in strange ways.

The problems are:

  • Noto sans appears half as wide as it should. :\
  • Xorg log has this rare error:
    Code:
    (EE) Failed to open authorization file "/var/run/sddm/{e546634b-6288-4bac-892f-6c4f40e77699}": No such file or directory

    Although it is there when I go and look for it, which is not to say that it was there earlier.
  • My KDE session is not restoring; each time I start with a blank desktop.


The Noto sans problem is only occurring for my user account, not others. Haven't experimented with KDE sessions.

What did I break??? I have been using KDE since version 3.5 and never seen this, but I also never tried an alternative to consolekit.

Any advice on how to fix this weirdness appreciated.

OK, the strangely narrow font was caused by a bug or misfeature of the Plasma Fonts System Settings module when you Adjust All Fonts...
For some reason it then defaults to using the extra condensed style.
