so after i'm killing X i get into the sddm screen.
there i enter my password (that belongs to my user of course) and after pressing ENTER, nothing happens.
i get "X" symbol instead of the symbol of the mouse and thats it.
i can move to another terminal (CTRL-ALT-F3 for example) and can log in there to my user.
so what i can do to "solve" this, is to restart my computer and it will get into gnome again automatically (till i will kill X again, and get back into sddm screen).

in the config of sddm i just have this (i didn't change anything in there):
Code:
[Autologin]
User=myuser
Session=gnome.desktop

[X11]
MinimumVT=7



couple of days ago i had problem with sddm which solved with the help of "fturco" from this thread:

Try look at /var/log/Xorg.log or journalctl -u sddm.service if there is some error.

here is the log of
Code:
journalctl -b | grep sddm

this is what i did:
i reboot my system.
then i killed X.
then i get into sddm and entered my username (and ENTER, and then it stopped responding).
after that i moved to the terminal and command:
Code:
wgetpaste -c 'journalctl -b | grep sddm'

then i reboot and get back here :-)

here is the text from
Code:
/var/log/Xorg.0.log
