When my system starts (ArchLinux - Antergos) the logging dialog appears and I enter my credentials, then it looks like my session would start but the logging dialog appears again.

So I am not able to start session with Plasma, however, via console, it's possible (by pressing CTR + ALT + F2), then I enter plasmashell to see the status and I get:

plasmashell: error while loading shared libraries: libKF5Auth.so.5 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That started occurring when I updated my system.

Where I can find it? or any alternative for this?


I finally get it to work.

I just downloaded the file: libKF5Auth.so.5 from here.

I followed the instructions here.

Basically, what it says is to put the file here:

cp libKF5Auth.so.5 /usr/lib/

Thanks @Ipor Sircer, I had no idea that the file kauth was the file plasma needed.
