Frozen Login screen

I recently installed EndevourOS with KDE and when I boot the system or try to login from suspend state the username and password fields gets frozen. It takes anywhere from 10 secs to 1 min before it allows me to type my credentials. Thinking this is a KDE issue I installed XFCE but same issue.

Please suggest if anyone had faced the same issue and what is the solution.

Thank you

maybe woth a try:
hit ctrl - f2 and check if smbd or lightdm are enabled / running.
as prompted, log in with your credentials once again.
XFCE goes with lightdm, so you type:

sudo systemctl status ligthdm

what does that say?

sudo systemctl status ligthdm returns Unit ligthdm.service could not be found

However grep ‘ExecStart=’ /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service
ExecStart=/usr/bin/lightdm returns lightdm so lightdm is installed.

sudo systemctl enable ligthdm

sudo systemctl start ligthdm

then would be next to type in…
