Hey ramen. Download the plasma-chili.tar.gz file to your Home folder and open a new terminal. (The path in the following command changes if you save it elsewhere) You can copy paste the following command if you wish to do so or analyze it and execute it step by step:

sudo tar -xzf ~/plasma-chili.tar.gz && sudo cp -R ~/plasma-chili /usr/share/sddm/themes/plasma-chili

This will ask for your password. You should then be able to set your newly installed theme from the system settings. If you're not then you should copy the SDDM default config file and edit it:

sudo cp /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/default.conf /etc/sddm.conf && sudo nano /etc/sddm.conf

This will open an editor where you will have to find the [Theme] section and change: Current=plasma-chili
Take note that Plasma 5.8.6 is quite behind the current stable version of KDE and may present unknown behavior. Everything should be fine though. - May 07 2019
There are three settings concerning the blur effect in your theme.conf file which can be usually found at /usr/share/SDDM/themes/chili. These are Blur=true , RecursiveBlurLoops=40 & RecursiveBlurRadius=4 . Loops are the iterations used repeating the blur and the radius the strongness of each iteration. Play around with these to see how they effect the effect :D - May 01 2019
Thank you :D - Feb 25 2019
Hey Neules, why not just try out and tell us? :D I suppose we all would like to know ;) - Feb 25 2019
Hello turboteddy sorry for the late reply. Usually these types of bugs are upstream. SDDM has some serious issues and the development seems somewhat stalled. Please refer to their Github for a lot of bugs. As to work around the black screen you could access your system as root on a different tty and unset the theme in sddm.conf. Please refer to the Arch wiki on SDDM for where this file can be found. - Jan 05 2019
As long as the KDE desktop environment is installed on your system it doesn't matter if you actually login with XFCE or Gnome or w/e else. This theme requires KDE because it does some calls to its API. But the actual OS, the linux distro on which you are should not matter. Usually any bugs encountered are mostly upstream, which means more serious problems in SDDM itself. - Jan 05 2019
Thank you so much for your kind words Neules. Actually it's really easy to customize things through the config. It's just using variables as values for a very visual language which is QML. I maybe might do a tut one day, who knows ;) - Nov 19 2018

Hallo tflori, ist mir bisher gar nicht aufgefallen...Das Widget ist lediglich eine leicht manipulierte standard KDE Uhr. Muss ich mal reinschauen. Das sollte im besten Fall natuerlich das aktuell gewaehlte Format vom System sein. Danke fuer den Hinweis! - Apr 25 2019
Hello bluekde. I hear you. This is a special use case. This widget is based on the kde system clock plasmoid and therefore not adequate for the job you describe, as almost any other clock widget. This is very unusual but I think it is a niche and maybe I'll write one in the future because I like the idea. Greetings. - Feb 02 2019

Sorry for the late reply and the inconvenience. The behavior of the SDDM virtual keyboard is a pain for us creators as it gets forcely loaded by SDDM by default if there is no logic implemented to handle it otherwise. Maybe in some future I'll implement this well. - Feb 02 2019
Hello vaxxipooh sorry indeed, distro versions with Qt lacking behind would have to upgrade. I see that Kubuntu latest is 18.10 Cosmic. Any reason not to do the upgrade? :) - Nov 04 2018
Hello arielaxionl. Sugar was designed on purpose without any avatar images. I think there are a lot of people who dislike having a picture shown on the login screen of a share system for example. Nevertheless I may consider this being an option in future releases if more people keep asking. Stay tuned!
In the mean time you can try my Chili theme which is designed to be just for this case. - Nov 03 2018

Hello vaistn, sorry for the late reply. I'm glad you found out yourself, so here is one tip mainly for others which could cause problems: Try to avoid special characters in the name of the background file. It may render the file unreadable. - Feb 02 2019
Thanks for the heads up! - Nov 20 2018
Glad you like it :) - Nov 20 2018
Also as for this particular feature request, Sugar was designed on purpose with an opaque background color behind the interface coming in dark and light variants. If you like a more transparent interface please check out my Chili theme :) - Nov 03 2018
Hey, I'm really sorry for this inconvenience. This is an upstream issue with the Qt Virtual Keyboard. It's a known issue documented on the SDDM Github: https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/952
As a work around you can change the default input method in your SDDM config file. The corresponding setting is found in the [General] section. Unset the InputMethod= variable to be empty.
SDDM does not yet provide any default method for handling the virtual keyboard, so most themes that don't explicitly have this feature coded - only breeze and breeze based ones at the moment as far as i know - will not have this issue when the InputMethod was set to InputMethod=qtvirtualkeyboard. - Nov 03 2018

If you like the quality but the design is not for you I'm open for suggestions on new themes. Winter is about to come, maybe I can find spare time for more login fun. I would love to see more from your work as well! There's way too little diversity on login themes. More themes mean more choice for the community and will benefit everyone involved!
Thank you for your comment and vote! - Nov 02 2018

Great plasmoid. Would it be possible to have an option to disable the blue text about "xxx minutes ago" in some future release? I is not at all legible in most panels or task bars and looks like broken pixels more than anything else. Would be awesome. Good work! - Dec 02 2018
