It's (most likely) just a matter of permissions, fedora default permissions do not allow any (non-root) users to read your $HOME (including desktop managers like sddm).

If you want to allow this, do:
chmod a+X $HOME
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2015-12-19 19:47:31 EST
Once plasma-user-manager is reviewed, we theoretically could add code to adjust permissions for you, once a face is set in the UI
Comment 3 Bhaskar S. Manda 2015-12-19 21:47:42 EST
Using chmod as specified fixes the issue.

That was my next bug - no user manager in settings - but you suggest the package will be added after review?

Yes, once it's reviewed
