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.

Thank you again for the rapid answer and disponibility, I supposed it was not working because yesterday I downloaded and installed the theme and set it as my default login theme without to reboot. And it wasn't working. Today it started working when I made the video, so I'm sorry I made a mistake.. But anyway you should see the video because there are some things that need to be fixed:

0) the missing avatar icon - 01.38
1) strange floating clock remotion - min 01.52
2) layer for the pre-logout see the min 01.24
3) lockscreen for the lockin (not only the logout) - min 3.17

This is the video: https://youtu.be/mu_UJRFMqAc

I want also to submit you some ideas for the next updates or alternative versions:

1) background on the black scrollable layer
2) or two different backgrounds fpr above and bottom layers (would be great if you have a set of similar wallpapers with you can generate a sort of animation)
6) compatibility with Komorebi and LiveWallpaper for animate wallpapers (I mean the wallpapers that moves when you move the mouse indicator, they are not only videos)

Let me know :)

Hi srog. it works but only if I logout not If I lock the screen. Can you fix this problem? I will upload a video sample of the problem, thanks! :)

That is because the SDDM and the KDE lock screen are different things. The KDE lock screen is part of the plasma look and feel theme and is not using the SDDM theme. The KDE lock screen can use the plasma wallpaper plugins KDE System Settings > Desktop Behavior > Screen Locking. Older - the 'slider' with the lock screen: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=289&t=131783&start=45#p372930 preview: https://youtu.be/7gsJkSYRIw8 .

Ok, I'm sorry I didn't know that. :) Anyway the SDDM them in the video looks great! Anyway, are you planning to create a lock screen also for the lock function? Thanks again for the demonstration! :)

Does the standard Breeze greeter ?

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.

A bug report: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=380880 . Yours ?

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
