I am attempting to display the KDE Plasma desktop environment, and be able to interact with it normally.
I installed KDE with the commands here:
$ apt install aptitude tasksel $ aptitude install ~t^desktop$ ~t^kde-desktop$
If I start my computer and boot into Debian, it shows the login screen, and my user name is selected, however it does not accept a password. It is not interactive and won't even give an error if the password is incorrect. Also, in the top left corner, under
Session, there is nothing in the dropdown menu at all.
Originally, TWM was intalled, but I deleted that with
apt-get and then immediately installed SDDM. I'm thinking during this process I didn't fully install or configure SDDM?
