Boot log from the messages file of this boot

Description of problem: sddm-greeter fails when I press a key on my keyboard to enter my credentials.

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

How reproducible:I don't know about others, but it is very reproducible on my machine 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot into kernel
2.Wait for the sddm-greeeter
3.Use the mouse to put a cursor into the name dialogue box to enter ones' name or do so if the cursor is already there.

Actual results:As soo as I press a key on my keyboard, the screen goes blank with a cursor as a cross! I have to do a tty2 or 3 to login that way.

Expected results: I should be able to enter my name and password, and KDE should 
start as I have logged in.

Additional info: I have noticed in system settings, there doesn't seem to be any themes for me to select. I am currently using the git versions of DRM, nouveau kernel, and xf86-video-nouveau.
