Description Jose Manuel López 2019-05-23 10:44:45 CEST
Description of problem: Modernize login screen. 

I think we should update the topic of login, so I made an example of how the new login could be.

There could be a snippet about this as it is done with the art of Mageia

In this link you can see the example:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1g4OduFK6Bl2ZzdCFwdi5AVbhrpYaAKjp

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Sddm Mga 7

How reproducible: Login screen

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the system
2.Personalize default sddm screen
3.The login screen is cleaner and updated

I think this might be something to discuss in the Atelier team.

Here's a link to follow: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Atelier_team

I modified the original theme "Breeze" that comes in Mageia, to adapt it to the suggestion that I mentioned in the atelier team.

I put here a link with the complete folder "breeze". To apply the theme, just replace the folder that is in /usr/share/sddm/themes, by this, and then apply the theme in preferences.


I hope you like it.

I support the request of Jose Manuel López to modernize sddm with the theme breeze.

I have do the change on my laptop and it's better without the "welcome on localhost".

I will ask again the subject on the discussion list.

Comment 12 Aurelien Oudelet 2020-08-14 17:57:43 CEST
I am not in Atelier Team to know about what is going on.

Therefore, I support the request to change the default theme for SDDM. We should make it based on Breeze theme with our wallpaper.

Blur effect on wallpaper should appear when credentials are required. But upstream theme is blur always on.

Mageia Theme is supplied by mga-coffee directory by sddm package - something odd...

This is High priority bug for a good reason.

Making Mageia even better than ever is best direction.
In order to do right thing, this bug should be examined and fixed as soon as possible.

Packagers, please make the status to Assigned when you are working on this.
Feel free to reassign the bug if bad-triaged. Also, if bug is old, please close it.

On October 1st 2020, we will drop priority to normal.
Comment 14 Jose Manuel López 2020-10-30 11:28:24 CET
Thanks to Katnatek of Blogdrake Blog, the Spanish comunity of Mageia, there is a rpm package of this sddm in Blogdrake repositories. I put the link here:

Comment 15 Nicolas Lécureuil 2020-12-13 16:17:56 CET

Comment 16 Aurelien Oudelet 2020-12-14 18:48:57 CET
I do think that we could update this.
Previously, mga-coffee has been made to not show a list of users.

We are waiting for latest contest from Atelier to get default wallpaper.

Note that we must add a 1920x1080 wallpaper size because of this resolution is important.

Comment 17 Nicolas Lécureuil 2021-01-11 21:35:16 CET
but seeing users is  no go ( at least from KDE Team )
Comment 18 David Walser 2021-01-11 23:49:17 CET
We just have to make sure that there are decent theme options for showing users and not showing users.
