There's some annoying flickering issue with SDDM (and Plasma) where moving the cursor (over the password entry box in the default theme) causes the screen to start flickering.
In plasma, it's less of a problem. It can be used normally with no issues until I try to lock\unlock the screen. Hovering over items causes the same flickering issues in SDDM.

I had this issue both in 17.0 and 17.1 profiles (with systemd, if this helps).

Could this be a missing driver\kernel misconfiguration thing?
