Well some success now back on the afflicted machine but having to log in and start
KDE using "startx" and it seems to be behaving .
It would seem to be either KDM or a systemd KDM problem and to be honest i cant
get my head round systemd yet , Main thing is the machine is useable again and i
can get on and reduce the amount of GVH (grievous verbal hassle) i am getting from
the club about an out of date web site ..
thanks Pete ..
