and frankly you should run large updates including KDE anyways in a VT
and not within the grapcial user session (at least as long as KDE5 is in

BTW: in better days CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE just killed the graphical

could press the power button too)
don't ask me where but i restored that behavior long ago (xorg config
alone is not enough)
