Thanks for the reply.
~~I installed Antergos with KDE/Plasma. Isnt sddm the default kde login manager?
Either way, sddm isnt enabled or running, so which login manager does it use by default? I need to disable that before installing and enabling sddm right?~~
Scrap that, I was being lazy. Its lightdm and I disabled it, installed/enabled sddm and this part is working so the wallet is now unlocked at login.
Hopefully someone can help me with the keys part.
Ive read how to open wallet on login but that doesnt seem to work. Supposedly when its called kdewallet and uses the same unlock password as your username password, it should automatically unlock, but it doesnt.
Second thing I cant figure out is how to load ssh key passphrases and use ssh-agent & ssh-add properly.
I have set SSH_ASKPASS="/usr/bin/ksshaskpass", that location is correct and I can run it manually using that full path.
I can run eval ssh-agent and it will come back with an agent PID. I can run ssh-add some-file and it will ask for the passphrase on the command prompt, it doesnt popup the ksshaskpass dialog.
Ultimately, what I like to accomplish is to have my passphrases in kwallet and my keys loaded when I login and unlock the wallet.
If anyone knows how to fix these things i will be a happy man. Thanks!
ps whats up with all the bullshit smileys using '`'" ?? I cant use proper quotes and ticks without that silly smiley poppin' up all over the place.
sudo pacman -S xf86-input-libinput && sudo pacman -R xf86-input-synaptics && sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf ~/
If this doesn’t work, you can rollback your changes with this:
sudo pacman -R xf86-input-libinput && sudo pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics && sudo mv ~/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
Hey thanks for the reply.
I tried it, rebooted but it is still the same. Touchpad is not detected and I can’t reverse scrolling.
I’m running on a Dell Latitude E5470, brand new one with a full install of plasma.
My touchpad works, but the control panel says its not detected. Result is that none of the settings work. I want to reverse the scrolling but the only way to do that is by changing mouse settings, and then the scrollwheel of my mouse is reversed which is not what I want :).
xinput list shows the following:
$ xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ ImPS/2 BYD TouchPad id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ DELL Laser Mouse id=14 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys id=12 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ DELL Wireless hotkeys id=13 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Dell Dell Multimedia Pro Keyboard id=15 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Dell Dell Multimedia Pro Keyboard id=16 [slave keyboard (3)]
As you can see its detected as “ImPS/2 BYD TouchPad”. I searched but can’t really find how to make this work.
If anyone has any ideas please share :).
Thanks for the help!
Oke, so after some fiddling …
Changing the DPI in /etc/sddm.conf works, it makes things blurry and ugly. Besides, it changes the session too not just the login screen.
I’m guessing, but I think something (sddm?) tries to detect and messes it up. Sometimes, when I took my laptop out of the dock and rebooted it, the screen looked oke.
I removed the dpi option from /etc/sddm.conf and changed the theme to something else. Reboot and it came up fine.
I changed it back to breeze and logged out, it was still fine. Back in the dock it’s fine too.
Problem solved but something is off with how this works.
Not really an installation question but I don’t know where else to post it.
I’ve added myself to group wheel and uncommented the following line using visudo:
%wheel ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
I’ve logged out and back in and rebooted even.
Sudo is still asking me for my password, why is that?
I’m running a triple monitor setup with my laptop in a docking station. I’m running the latest Plasma desktop with all kde-apps. I’ve setup the desktops to my liking and everything is fine.
However, SDDM login screen is way too small. When I compare the icons to the lock screen, they are like 1/4th. I can’t even read my name or password.
I tried changing the dpi setting in /etc/sddm.conf, and this works (although it gets really ugly when I scale it up), the desktop becomes larger as well and gets blurry.
I checked the scaling for the desktop, but it’s at 100% still.
So the question, why is SDDM login screen so damn small and how do I change that?
Ps. I installed SDDM and Plasma the same way on my workstation at home, and its fine. The SDDM icons for new session etc are the same size as the lock screen icons.
Thanks for the help!
