One potential accessibility issue (bug) and one question relating to
sddm. I'm posting here first since I believe openSUSE has a somewhat
customized plasma/sddm compared to upstream, so I want to know if I
should post a report to oS Bugzilla.
I've done a fresh install of Leap 42.2 with Plasma5 on my x86-64 laptop.
When I lock the screen or do a Suspend to RAM, upon resuming there is no
cursor in the password field (autologin disabled, lock screen on resume
checked in System Settings). I've tried some of the most obvious keys
and key combos but nothing is recognized, hence there's no tabbing or
modifier keys accessible. A mouse input is obligatory to click in the
password field first.
The laptop has an nVidia Quadro NVS135M with the proprietary G03 v340.x
drivers. Upon reaching the same login screen after a boot, the cursor is
blinking ready to take input.
As for the question, I have my laptop docked with a second screen hooked
up via VGA and unified outputs. The laptop max resolution is 1280x800
whilst the second screen is capable of 1920x1280. During the boot cycle,
GRUB (where I have explicitly set 1280x800) passes on to Plymouth
(flicker city) and the 2nd screen reverts to 1920x1280. When I log in to
Plasma, it has to revert back again to 1280x800. At each change it has
to go off, show an additional momentary black screen, then show the new
resolution in an overlay. It's all very ugly, probably complicated
further by the nVidia driver wanting to shove its splash screen logo
into the process.
I've had a look through the man pages for sddm.conf and tried producing
an example config, but I don't see anything explicitly mentioned for
setting screen resolution. There is a placeholder for X server scripts
which I know nothing about. Is there any simple way to force the system
to output to all screens at 1280x800 at all times?
