Mageia Bugzilla – Bug 16493
Add a mageia theme for sddm without user listing
Last modified: 2017-03-16 17:14:02 CET
Since Kdm is gone now, I am reiterating an old wish which is to have a mageia greeter theme that does not list all users on the system (in addition to the usual one for those who wish to have user listing).
That is useful for sysadmin that do not want all login names to be listed in public places.
Since I guess that the kde team is quite busy with debugging plasma, I am providing such a theme in attachment, it is called mga-coffee for obvious reasons :)
That directory should go in /usr/share/sddm/themes and "mga-coffee" specified in /etc/sddm.conf.
I'll be happy to package an update-alternatives for /etc/sddm.conf once we will have a mageia-sddm-default-config on request!
Steps to Reproduce:

mga-coffee theme, without user listing
1) Should go in /usr/share/sddm/themes
2) Modify /etc/sddm.conf as:
# use our custom theme based on Maui but with default Mageia background
This is absolutely necessary for security reasons, and also MSEC disables the user lists when you switch to secure level, but it does not yet have support for SDDM. This needs to be added. I guess it could be written to use Chris's theme when in secure level.
Please add it.
Taking this one, as I'm fixing some more sddm bugs along the way :)
Just tested with sddm-0.12.0-1.mga5, works fine for me :)
Added via http://svnweb.mageia.org/packages?view=revision&revision=886043 and thanks to Chris for providing the new theme ^^
Please provide feedback if something is not working.
maui is now deprecated. Can you provide a new mga version based on new sddm default theme ?
what about just using maldives or elarun with a mageia background ?

Actually my understanding is that maui was not deprecated, but it's now the default/what you have with no specific theme:

I'll have a look if needed, sure!
(Changing target milestone just for a test)

Replacement file to suppress the display of the flag
I propose this display without the flag of the layout. It brings no good information, but confusion. There is not yet better way.
Florian, Nicolas, could one of you test papoteur's fix in Comment 12 and add it to our theme? Or point me to the right package so that I have a look?
can you provide a patch please ?
