Description:

For KDE Plasma only!
Chili is hot, just like a real chili! Spice up the login experience of your users, your family and yourself. Chili reduces all the clutter and leaves you with a clean, easy to use, login interface with a modern yet classy touch.

Chili for KDE Plasma is the desktop environment specific version with enhanced functionality . If you don't use Plasma as your desktop environment this theme won't work and you should instead install Chili for stand-alone SDDM.

Chili for KDE Plasma is highly customizable through its config file! You can alter the intensity of the background blur or even not have any blur at all! Have a custom password character or set the field to outline only. Things look too small on your screen? Change sizes to something that better suits your resolution! Don't like the circle? Use a custom PNG with transparency for your avatar! See the file or the Github README for details. You have an idea for an awesome feature? Comment your request on Github.

Please share some love and pling this theme if you're a supporter or up vote if you like this theme! You can become a supporter of opendesktop and the people who create content for your linux desktop for a one time donation for a full year. Your donation will help and encourage a lot of people to create new decorations, icons, themes and keep them maintained.

Let's help each other and get away from closed source enterprise driven content that gets dumped and unsupported after six months.
Let's make Linux popular!

Also be sure to check out my window decorations and folder icons that surely will fit well with your new login screen.

Install

"System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM) > Get New Theme".
To access this setting the sddm-kcm package has to be installed. If in doubt use your package manager to search and if necessary install sddm-kcm first.
The background can be changed to anything you want on the right hand side in "System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM)". Select the large green button next to "Background:"


Enjoy!



Notes

You might see some grey pixels around your user image which is caused by the the anti-aliasing of the opacity mask. You may change the fill color of the mask that resides in "components/artwork/mask.svg" to a color that better matches with your user images colors. Do not change the opacity of the mask. Take note that this might affect other user images with different colors present on your system.
To use a PNG file with transparency as your .face file please set the corresponding option UsePngInsteadOfMask in the config to true.


A word on my own

In the past years I have spent quite some hours on open source projects. If you are the type of person who digs attention to detail, know how much work is involved in it and/or simply likes to support makers with a coffee or a beer I would greatly appreciate your donation on my PayPayl account.

Hi gamunu. I too already thought about this. Apparently it would be nice to have the lockscreen to be in harmony with the login screen. There are two problems here though. The first one is the major one and it's the fact that the lock screen to date is a core part of plasma and does not include theming of any kind as of yet (somebody lecture me please). This could change in the future but for now you would have to modify plasma core content as you mention. This immediately causes another issue: Everytime you update plasma you'll destroy your changes, which will cause you to establish some backup-restore-tweaks-routine everytime you see that plasma is about to update.
The second issue is simply that because of all this there is simply no category on opendesktop.org for this scenario. Really sorry for the moment. Hopefully soon there'll be an option to make themes for the lock screen as well!

SDDM has its own QML theming, while the Lockscreen uses the svg-based Plasma theme of the user to draw its components. To tweak the Lockscreen, one has to fork Breeze (copy /usr/share/plasma/desktoptheme/default/ to somewhere else) and tweak it, e.g. change the text field /input/text area svg to one similar to this theme). That will change the Lockscreen. But that will also change ALL text fields in Plasma, including the Run Command dialog.
To change the layout, one has to modify the QML source code of the Lockscreen. The background can also be set to match.

This is a really nice theme. However, the suspend, restart and shutdown buttons are not working, I can't click them.
I'm using qt 5.10, sddm 0.17.0. My screen resolution is 2560x1440

Weird, they're working for me. What's your Plasma version? I'm on 5.12 Maybe they tweaked their theme in not backwards compatible ways? I'll have a look at the files and see if I can find something that would make any big difference.

Also there's a high-DPI scaling setting in the sddm config file for wayland and X11 seperately. You could try to set this to true in /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/sddm.conf

Also see the thread on the arch forum where it seems that this only happens on recent/fresh Arch installs. (I'm on a settled arch install and this doesn't happen)

Would you mind helping me analyze this further? If you changed your screen resolution to something lower, old school, does that change anything?

Actually I'm reading that the recursive blur effect is available since Qt version 5.1 several years ago. So that shouldn't be an issue actually. Please provide as much details as possible. (OS, CPU, GPU, OpenGL version)

Report

If your Qt version is up to date (5.10) make sure to also check that you have OpenGL running. (Info Center > Graphical Information. Hope we can solve this.

This is probably due to a Qt version mismatch. I think the recursive blur filter requires Qt 5.10. Would have to note that down in the description. Could you please do me a favor and check your Qt version under "Info Center"? (KInfocenter)
