Description:

SDDM Theme Breeze Slider is a modification of the standard Breeze (Plasma 5.9.4) theme.

This sddm theme is using a semitransparent (color: "#F2000000") rectangle. The sddm texts are on the rectangle and moving out the sight when not needed.

The rectangle is moving:
- up when up arrow is pressed
- down when the down arrow is pressed.
- mouse movement will also trigger the down movement.
- after 3 minute inactivity the rectangle is sliding out of sight.

Installation:
Plasma 5.9 or later
Use "Get New Theme / Install From file" from the KDE SDDM control module (kcm-sddm).

Older than Plasma 5.9
Unpack and copy the 'breeze-slider' directory to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/. From the cli:
$ sudo cp -R breeze-slider /usr/share/sddm/themes/

Supports:
- Solid color background
- Image background
- Video background
- Video playlist background
- Image slideshow background

Settings:

Solid colour
Set the type and the color at /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/theme.conf.user
Example: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=289&t=137502#p370239

Image background
Same as the standard Breeze sddm theme 5.9
Copy picture file (Imagefile.jpg) to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/ and set the theme.conf.user:

[general]
background=Imagefile.jpg
type=image

The KDE sddm module (plasma 5.9) will write correct theme.conf.user for the Breeze slider sddm theme.

Video background
Copy video file (VideoFile.mp4) to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/ and set the theme.conf.user:

[general]
background=VideoFile.mp4
type=video

Video playlist background
Copy video playlist (Video-Playlist.m3u) to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/ and set the theme.conf.user:

[general]
background=Video-Playlist.m3u
type=video

Image slideshow

Link (or copy) image files to the /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/SlideFiles/
and set the theme.conf.user:

[general]
type=slideshow


The breeze-slider.tar.gz has ../Notes/README.txt file with more information.
After installation the readme is /usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/Notes/README.txt.

No, unfortunately. I'm looking for a theme that works with sssd and so for none of the themes I tested works. With ldap only (no sssd) standard breeze theme works ok.

Yes. I found some information in the internet that this is some kind of an issue in an sddm theme. I guess that the official theme should not have such "features" I decided to fill in a bug.

Hello! Just wondering if there is a way to change the clock to 12 hour?

Floating clock ?


breeze-slider/Floaterclock.qml
or after the installation
/usr/share/sddm/themes/breeze-slider/Floaterclock.qml


line 23 is
text: Qt.formatTime(timeSource.data["Local"]["DateTime"], " hh:mm ")
change it to the
text: Qt.formatTime(timeSource.data["Local"]["DateTime"])
or
text: Qt.formatTime(timeSource.data["Local"]["DateTime"], " hh:mm A")

More of the Qml datetime formats: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtqml-date.html#details
