KDE Plasma - softlock after entering password

I am quite new to using Plasma, but I have had no issues with it before, except today when I type my password, the login screen will softlock, and not do anything after that, there is no splash screen, only the login with the password dimmed out as if it were going to load.

edit: fixed after doing ctrl+alt+f3 and logging in through terminal before logging in through sddm and deleting ~/.Xauthority file and then logging in sddm
