Comment 1 Martin Bříza 2013-09-12 07:29:42 UTC
SDDM has themes that allow this. Change the CurrentTheme value in /etc/sddm.conf to circles, elarun or maldives. Closing as not a bug. If you still think this is broken, please reopen the report.
Also, please test if you can log to your account from LDAP as per Bug #1007067 with these themes.
Thank you.

I think history has taught us (with with both past gdm and kdm theming), that either user list mode needs to be both robust (to be able to handle 1000's of users well) and allow for manual login for users not listed.

In practice, supporting that has been difficult/impossible in the past, so the compromise had been to not use user lists in default theming.  I think we should do the same for sddm default theming as well.

Reopening, re-assigning to -kde-theme

While we're on the topic, we could consider moving sddm's settings elsewhere, similar to kde-settings-kdm.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2013-09-12 14:04:31 UTC
oops, wrong reassignment. :)

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2013-10-09 22:20:47 UTC
Any progress here?  It seems like the default theme still is a user list.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2013-10-09 22:35:44 UTC
Martin has a work-in-progress theme, and I think he'll commit what he has to 
soon.  Then we can flex some polish and packaging muscle.
