I am new to Fedora and KDE. I turn off switchable graphics and there is no problem. With switchable graphics enabled the login screen is blank. I guess when it comes up to enter the password to log in. I am using Fedora 29 KDE spin. I don't know what log files to include or where to find them. Though I am able to use the terminal I am not familiar with where the log files are and I am more used to GNOME and unsure about KDE which I am new to. I would really like help on fixing the login screen so I can see the login screen. It is blank when the computer boots up. The lock screen still works normally. It is just the login screen that is the problem.

Edit: I don't have enough points to upload the Xorg Log file and I can't understand it. Here is Google Drive link to the log file in /var/log for Xorg:

Instead of mentioned bumblebee installation (working login screen is only a side effect of properly installed Nvidia proprietary driver), you can use guide ( It will work just better.

If, by a chance, you use system76 hardware, check also this site:
