Description Matt Fagnani 2022-03-02 07:24:50 UTC
Description of problem:

When I clicked on the login button labelled > to the right of the password box in sddm on Wayland with the correct password entered in a Fedora 36 KDE Plasma installation, sddm didn't log in to Plasma on Wayland most of the time. When I clicked on the login button in sddm on Wayland with an incorrect password entered, sddm usually didn't show an incorrect password error. However, the missing Sleep, Restart, Shut down, and Other options under the password box appeared for about a second when I clicked on the login button before disappearing. I reported the missing Sleep, Restart, Shut down, and Other options at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2058468

If I hit Enter with the correct password entered, sddm always logged in to Plasma on Wayland.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sddm-0.19.0^git20220228.c257a40-2.fc36.x86_64
sddm-wayland-plasma-5.24.2-1.fc36.noarch
kwin-5.24.2-2.fc36.x86_64
qt5-qtbase-5.15.2-33.fc36.x86_64

How reproducible:
Clicking on the login button with the correct password didn't log in most of the time. Clicking on the login button with an incorrect password didn't show an error message on most tries.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a Fedora 36 KDE Plasma installation updated to 2022-3-1 with updates-testing enabled and sddm-0.19.0^git20220228.c257a40-2.fc36.x86_64 and sddm-wayland-plasma-5.24.2-1.fc36.noarch installed
2. Enter the correct password for a user in sddm on Wayland
3. Click on the login button labelled >
4. Enter an incorrect password for a user in sddm
5. Click on the login button labelled >

Actual results:
Clicking on the login button labelled > in sddm on Wayland usually didn't log in to Plasma on Wayland with a correct password or give an error message with an incorrect password.

Expected results:
Clicking on the login button labelled > in sddm would log in to Plasma on Wayland normally if the correct password was entered or give an error message if the password was incorrect.

Clicking the login button in sddm on Wayland with a correct password logged in to Plasma on Wayland each time using plasma-workspace-5.24.2-3.fc36 and sddm-0.19.0^git20220228.c257a40-3.fc36 and with an incorrect password showed Login failed. Thanks for the fix.
