In a previous thread I mentioned the strange issue on Plasma DE that
prevented me to start NetworkManager and use the power options as
user. So I tried to see whether my consolekit session was active or
not, but % ck-list-sessions gave me no output at all! So I thought
that a .xsession file was needed and edited it adding "exec
ck-launch-session startplasma-x11". On reboot I was able to connect to
my wireless network as user, and all the power options were back and
working! Of course it's only a workaround, because I really don't know
why sddm could not get consolekit to start normally, but at least my
DE is usable now. Hope this helps.
This appears to be another xsession issue like what we fixed with MATE.
The /usr/share/xsessions/plasma.desktop needs to have
Exec=/usr/bin/ck-launch-session startplasma-x11 in order to start
correctly from sddm. However, after trying this it seems the newly
available shutdown and reboot options from inside Plasma do not work
correctly - was that your experience as well? I will probably need to
hand this over to our Plasma maintainer at this point.
