You try to login to your graphical environment under linux, but the screen remains black and nothing more happens.


It does not matter if you have a vanilla (brand new) account (without any profile folders) or an account with an old KDE/Plasma profile in it. In Debian Stretch (and maybe also in Debian Buster) there is a bug which prevents the proper first start of Plasma. To circumvent this problem you have to stop the current session and then login again.
