I'm new to Arch based linux, but have used many Debian based distros in the past, still got a bit of a learning curve to work out.
Anywho, my issue is that after booting from grub I am greeted with about 1 frame of the login screen followed by unresponsive black screen. I can Ctrl+Alt+F2 to ttl2 and run startx then the gui works as i would expect. However as I have not been able to identify the actual cause I have stumbled around and reinstalled a couple of times.
I am using Dragonized KDE, and as I have learned it uses SDDM by default. Previous examples of this issue seem to indicate it may be an issue, so I attempted to use the git one, but resulted in no change (if I even did it correctly).
I have not messed with my bios SATA settings as I seem to be able to boot just fine, no fast boot or fast startup.
I removed the boot splash screen as one post indicated that helped them for no particular reason, but that also did not help.
I expect it is the display manager as I have mentioned, however I have not had issues with display managers prior, and I have little experience with Arch based linux so I am at a loss as to how to go about fixing it.
