Hi Gerald,
thanks for your report. Does SDDM only hang when you change your user picture or does it even when you don't change anything about your account?
Thanks

Comment 4 Gerald Cox 2013-08-21 16:57:37 UTC
Hey Martin,

I checked again, and you are correct - the hang occurs regardless if I just logout and try to log back in.  If I reboot, it appears to work fine, otherwise it hangs.

Comment 5 Gerald Cox 2013-08-21 19:00:07 UTC
I applied the patch, now when I logoff and try to log back in I get a message saying login failed.  I am able now to press the restart button in the upper right and it works... which it didn't before.  

The photo quality is still blurry.

Hi Gerald,
I just repushed the package, please note you'll have to run yum distro-sync or yum downgrade to get this version.
Sorry for the confusion.

Comment 10 Martin Bříza 2013-08-22 09:32:28 UTC
Gerald,
yeah, looking at it, the build doesn't probably solve it anyway but at least you can test the newer one now. I'll look at the problem you described next week.
Thank you

I addressed this bug in the https://github.com/sddm/sddm/pull/95 upstream pull request. I also included it in sddm-0.2.0-0.4.20130821gite707e229 builds for Fedora 20 and Rawhide. Stable packages will follow soon.

Comment 14 Gerald Cox 2013-09-05 16:43:14 UTC
Fixed the issue where there is a hang when logoff - but found that if you try to switch to another desktop, i.e. GNOME it sits with a blank screen with a cursor X for a few minutes, then you receive a message - "Unexpected error occurred, please logoff".  If you logoff, then select KDE PLASMA it works fine.  

The rendering of the photo for the userid is still poor.  Is this an issue with the system reducing the resolution when it is initially stored and then the size of the photo on SDDM is enlarged from a reduced resolution copy?  The original photo I used was of a sufficient resolution that it should be able to be displayed clearly.

Thanks!

last I checked/knew, user switching to/from gnome only works with gdm

It worked with kdm and lightdm - and gdm btw allows you to switch back and forth from gnome to kde.  I'll open another bug.
