I followed this guide to install Gentoo +systemd+KDE. After booting in gentoo I noticed an unusual behaviour.

  • once booted I can launch applications, only if there are no WiFi connection being used.

  • once connected to any WiFi network KDE application refuse to launch.

  • And now even when I disconnect WiFi connection I can't launch any applications from menu.

After clicking on any application from menu it momentarily appears with blue spinning circle and then disappears KDE 5 vlc loading

Another thing I noticed

  • after connecting to WiFi, KDE gives broken login screen error which otherwise not occurs

How can I solve this problem? If any outputs required feel free to ask !! and Thanks for help in advance !!

  • Try starting the program from the command line in a terminal window to see if some error message is printed. Dec 21, 2019 at 5:41
  • Ran one program from terminal and it worked flawlessly ; ran another program directly and it ran flawlessly and now everything is running perfectly.Thanks !!
