Hello,
I was looking for a solution for a long time already. Nothing relevant is on the web though Sad

When I log out from my session I am presented with a black screen with a cursor in the middle. However it seems that the login screen is functional because if I move the cursor it changes like I am going to write.

I tried to change the kdm screen with no result.
If I try to reinstall kdm I get this message:

      Code:
root@desktop-aptosid:/home/petr# apt-get remove kdm
Čtu seznamy balíků… Hotovo
Vytvářím strom závislostí       
Čtu stavové informace… Hotovo
Některé balíky nemohly být instalovány. To může znamenat, že požadujete
nemožnou situaci, nebo, pokud používáte nestabilní distribuci, že
vyžadované balíky ještě nebyly vytvořeny nebo přesunuty z Příchozí fronty.
Následující informace vám mohou pomoci vyřešit tuto situaci:

Následující balíky mají nesplněné závislosti:
 aptosid-art-kde-ponos : Závisí na: aptosid-art-kdm-ponos ale nebude se instalovat
E: Poškozené balíky


ponos isn't even released yet !

Can you try
      Code:
apt-get remove --purge aptosid-art-kde-ponos aptosid-art-kdm-ponos
      Code:
apt-get install --reinstall kdm
that might not be necessary

Do you still have the imera stuff ?

Did you grab the ponos stuff from svn ?

      Code:
apt-get install aptosid-art-kde-imera aptosid-art-kdm-imera aptosid-art-wallpaper-imera aptosid-art-ksplash-imera gfxboot-themes-aptosid-2011-02-imera gfxboot-themes-aptosid-2011-02-imera-core




this is what I have installed
      Code:
aptosid-art-kdm-ponos:amd64 (0.0.1), gfxboot-themes-aptosid-2011-03-ponos-core:amd64 (0.5.24), aptosid-art-kde-ponos:amd64 (0.0.1), gfxboot-themes-aptosid-2011-03-ponos:amd64 (0.5.24), aptosid-art-ksplash-ponos:amd64 (0.0.1), aptosid-art-wallpaper-ponos:amd64 (0.0.1), gfxboot-dev:amd64 (4.3.5-2)
with no problems, which I believe are dummy (blue) files till the artwork is done

Hi,
I had the same problem. I solved it by putting this line

TerminateServer=true

into /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc.

Regards,
Wolfgang

Did this happen with a dist-upgrade or has this been an ongoing problem for you ?

4 machines here 3 nvidia and 1 ati and all are fine here

Firtly, thank you very much for such prompt replies.

@piper
I didn't have anything installed concerning ponos Sad and I reinstall kdm several times. Reinstalling works, removing not. However, nothing changes.
I hadn't the imera stuff. Guess I removed it manually but installing it again had no effect Sad It pulled also the gfxboot package which I didn't have. Don't know if it's important.

This has been an ongoing problem for me. I remember that once (maybe after a dist-upgrade) it worked but then again later it stopped working.

@wofritz
I tried your workaround but it didn't work for me Sad

Could you do a
      Code:
LANG=C apt-get update && apt-get -duV -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes purge kdm
so that I can read the output better?

Hm, strange. I had exactly the same problem on 2 machines with different graphic boards and on both it worked. Maybe the line is not at the right position in the file. Here the snippet of kdmrc with the line:
      Code:

[X-:*-Core]
AllowNullPasswd=true
AllowShutdown=All
NoPassEnable=false
NoPassUsers=
ServerArgsLocal=-br -nolisten tcp
ServerCmd=/usr/bin/X
TerminateServer=true

[X-:*-Greeter]
AllowClose=true
DefaultUser=aptosid

@arwa
I am sorry, if I had known it could be translated into english I would have posted it in english.

Here it is:

@wofritz
Now it worked Surprised It had to be in the correct section. Thank you very much.

However, what troubles me is that I haven't done anything to this file before so this seems to be a bit of a hack as it doesn't solve the cause of the problem Sad
There must be something beyond.

The reason why you cannot remove kdm seems to be that the aptosid-art-kde-* packages depend on it. Removing kdm will remove these art packages, too. But one meta package "aptosid-art-kde" still is kept that depends on:

apt-cache show aptosid-art-kde
Depends: aptosid-art-kde-ponos | aptosid-art-kde-theme

Because the last aptosid-art-kde-theme would be removed, this package wants the ponos package instead, but this is not yet installable. So if you still want to remove kdm you need to remove "aptosid-art-kde" first, I think.

Greetings,
arwa

IIRC I got the problem after an upgrade of KDM. Maybe KDM's default behavior has been changed to not restart the X server and this makes problems on some systems.
