Greetings,

with kf5 out to ~ state, I've merged sddm, now I have three annoying issues I'm looking to solve:
  • remove the pesky top bar which isn't needed once you select a theme that already has it.
  • I'm using the elarun themes and the restart and shutdown buttons don't work, any ideas what might be the issue?
  • for some reason, the last username is always visible and I want to make it disappear. any ideas how to do that?


here is my config:
Code:
[Autologin]                                                                                                                                                     
Relogin=false
Session=
User=

[General]
HaltCommand=/sbin/shutdown -h -P now
Numlock=none
RebootCommand=/sbin/shutdown -r now

[Theme]
Current=elarun
CursorTheme=Adwaita
FacesDir=/usr/share/sddm/faces
ThemeDir=/usr/share/sddm/themes

[Users]
DefaultPath=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
HideShells=
HideUsers=true
MaximumUid=65000
MinimumUid=1000
RememberLastSession=false
RememberLastUser=false

[XDisplay]
DisplayCommand=/usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup
MinimumVT=7
ServerPath=/usr/bin/X
SessionCommand=/usr/local/bin/Xsession-wrapper.sh
SessionDir=/usr/share/xsessions
XauthPath=/usr/bin/xauth

What are your use flags with SDDM?
It doesn't seem to properly handle non-consolekit shutdown/reboot commands (see: bugs 355 236 and 434).
If you mean that they are grayed out, or similar, it's possible that you don't have the permissions required to restart/shutdown (see bug 405).

I can't find any upstream problems with the last username (beyond it not being differentiated by tty). You can try reporting to upstream.
In the meanwhile, you can simply lock your /var/lib/sddm/state.conf.
Something along the lines of...
Code:
$ $EDITOR /var/lib/sddm/state.conf # change line with User=someuser to User=
# chattr +i


Finally, for the top bar, I believe this is an upstream issue (though I can't be certain, hopefully someone more familiar with the project can help), but it doesn't seem to have been reported; you might consider bugging the upstream devs about it.
