KDE User Bar corrupt

Post by sqlpython » Sun Aug 11, 2013 6:53

For the first time in years I installed Sabayon KDE from a downloaded ISO.
No complaints about the install seemed to have gone fine. Also the KDE Sabayon Desktop is working smoothly.
The problem is the Logon Screen. There is a new feature the Logon User Bar Theme.
This presents the user with Photo Icons per each User. However I am presented with Users that I don't have.........
When I changed the Logon to Classice theme then I have only text repsentning users and no extra Users.
Anyone encounter this issue...................

Hi,

Do you use lightDM or KDM or something else login screen? :-)

I believe that the install uses lightDM.
However, that KDE install is on a Machine not available to me until tonight.
I will check that item.
Why do you ask?
Are you having similar problems or know of a solution?

You should try KDM instead of lightDM, I th ink. It works properly here moreover there are tons of nice themes on the kde-look.org for it.

Anyway, the defaul xdm of 13.04 installer was terrify indeed, produce the similar issues you mentioned before. (I don't know if it was light DM but I changed it to KDM right away)

You were correct to immediately switch to KDM. I have installed KDE off and on for about 15 years.
I can remember only KDM being the only default with all distros that I have tried. This particular install seems to have lightDM.
I believe I will follow your lead and switch to KDM also... thank you
