Exactly the same issue. Plasmashell segfault with "error 4 in
libkcupslib.so". Black screen after login, all hot keys work, ALT+F2
works, but no desktop GUI. Removing "print-manager" fixed issue, but
this is a hotfix.

My system (if helps):
- Dell XPS 2-in-1
- Kubuntu 17.10 that was staying in my PC for last few months and that was initially grown up from Kubuntu 16.04. 
- Looks like the bug came in one of last updates.
- First that I did when saw no GUI after reboot - upgraded to 18.04 with a hope, that upgrade will overwrite buggy pages. But the issue remained.
- Cleaning up ".config" directory or creation of a new user does not work. New user accounts do not have GUI either.
