Bug ID: 1047257
Summary: with SDDM as display manager, user login fails when
home directory is encrypted
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.3
Hardware: x86-64
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE Workspace (Plasma)
Assignee: opensuse-kde-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Build Identifier:

This is not a Plasma 5 bug but rather a SDDM related bug. But since the
standard display manager for Plasma 5 is SDDM, every Plasma 5 user (with an
encrypted home directory) is affected by this bug.

When a user with an encrypted home directory tries to log in, the login process
does not succeed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create new user with encrypted home directory using Yast "User and Group
management" modul
2. Make sure SDDM is the used display manager
3. log out
4. log in as new user
Actual Results:
Login fails, instead a black screen with just the mouse cursor is shown

Expected Results:
successful login

Does not happen with xdm as display manager. Therefore this seems to be an SDDM
related bug and not YasT related.

Feel free to change the bug severity since a security feature does not work
