SDDM-Video-Login (Breeze), partly [Solved]

Post by linuxfluesterer » Tue Feb 06, 2018 23:57

Hallo guys.
I use Plasma 5.11.5 now. I read, since version 5.6 it is possible to login with a video background. But there is no breeze-video directory on /usr/share/sddm/themes ...
So, my simple questio ins: How can I easily select this video login:

or, where can I get video login screens?
Sorry, but I need a detailed instruction with all necessary files and steps I need to do.Better would be, I could simply download ready-to-use tar.gz theme files. I haven't found any useful (complete) instruction with Google.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you, I already found this site, but I don't understand what they mean, resp. how to handle from here:
"Adding to the Main.qml the qml mediaplayer - http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtmultimedia-mediaplayer.html:
...

????? I assume, there's a lot of missing informations and steps how to install that stuff. And, honestly, why must I install this, when it is said, that video login is part as of Plasma 5.6? It is confusing and too complicated.
This is the reason, why I ask for a simple tar.gz file, which I can download, unpack on the correct directories and then ... it works.

But this information on that website I cannot follow, I don't get it, sorry.

I appreciate your effort very much, Sabayonino, really! So thank you for every suggestion here to us.
I know, that there are some roadworks still open for KDE / Plasma.

But what I really miss, is, if there is a solution, a work, the Plasma developers have published, that there is too often no good /understandable documentation to find in even their own sources, how to activate their works, how to make their projects run.

At least, today I found the reason, why my SDDM login background wallpaper and also my login window (for the user and the password) was in low resolution though my monitor is a high resolution one with 3440x1440 pixels.

The resolution is simply this:
I had to create a new file named 50-monitor.conf at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d (on DP1-8 my monitor is identified to be connected):

Code: Select all

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "DP1-8"
        Option "Enable" "true"
        Option "PreferredMode" "3440x1440"
EndSection
So, when I hear something new about video login, I will try again. But this (high re-) solution for login is fine for me now.

If no special config has passed through the extra configuration file, udev try to setup better resolution that it recognized
