Description David Walser 2016-08-08 17:05:00 CEST
Trying to log in to Plasma as root gives a dialog that says:
"Could not start D-Bus. Can you call qdbus?"

with a button that says "okay"

Clicking it results in nothing else happening; just stuck with a red screen.

Please report this upstream but i don't think this is a bug.
Comment 2 David Walser 2016-08-10 23:58:46 CEST
It's certainly a bug, as this used to work, and it should work (even if it's not recommended for general use), and it really sounds like a possible packaging problem to me.

Note that Lewis got the same exact error logging into Plasma from GDM:

I assume that was even as a regular user.
