Description:kernel linux-zen 5.15.zen1-1 invisible cursor and X won't start

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

fresh install with testing and community testing enabled
install xorg and xorg-xinit
install kde system, utilities, network and grapjics meta packages

Using xinit and startx, xorg does not start.
Using DM sddm, x starts but the mouse pointer is invisible.

I re-installed xorg and kde-meta packages which didn't fix.
Down-grading the kernel to 5.14.16-zen1-1-zen resolved the issue

sudo journalctl -b 11 --no-pager

Also re-installing plasma didn't help.

Just upgraded to 5.15 and cannot reproduce.
I'll request closing this.
