SDDM
« on: 2020/11/10, 12:15:03 »
After a recent upgrade my PC booted into i3 not Plasma, I thought it was to do with the Plasma update but eventually discovered it was SDDM. Because of the background I could not see the  option to select desktop to boot. So now I am running SDDM Breeze theme and want to remove  Patience but it wants to remove console-common and install desktop-base and lightDM with lightDM Patience theme. Any idea why and how to remove the Patience SDDM theme.
Code: [Select]
apt  remove sddm-theme-patience
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

The following additional packages will be installed:
  desktop-base fonts-quicksand libayatana-ido3-0.4-0 libayatana-indicator3-7 liblightdm-gobject-1-0 libplymouth4 libxklavier16 lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter
  patience-lightdm-gtk-settings plymouth plymouth-label
Suggested packages:
  gnome | kde-standard | xfce4 | wmaker xserver-xephyr plymouth-themes
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  console-common patience-sddm-settings sddm-theme-patience
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  desktop-base fonts-quicksand libayatana-ido3-0.4-0 libayatana-indicator3-7 liblightdm-gobject-1-0 libplymouth4 libxklavier16 lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter

"/etc/sddm.conf" is the configuration file. You could change the DE in the following line:

Code: [Select]
Session=plasma.desktop
sddm-theme-patience will probably be the only installed theme. You will have to install another one first.

Axt thanks ,I know how to configure SDDM my original problem was that SDDM had been upgraded and when rebooted loaded i3 not Plasma. I couldn't see the select desktop option ( bottom left on screen) at SDDM login because the text was unreadable with the black and white photo I had set as wallpaper. That has all been resolved.
The problem now is it doesn't look to be possible to remove the Patience theme without  all the changes I mentioned in my original post.

I already understood you in the start posting.

You can't uninstall the sole installed SDDM theme w/o uninstalling SDDM altogether.

Code: [Select]
apt install sddm-theme-breeze # for example
apt purge sddm-theme-patience

You can't just click, but you can edit the configuration file as described and linked (!).

Wired, do not understand why lightdm should be installed, no need for it.
some strange dependences, have to look for it

For @ll which are noticed after update to sddm 0.19.0-1/-2 and done/do a new login and faced another desktop-session than the preferred one or a black screen (maybe the  plasma-wayland session). Please log out, choose in the dropdown menu the right session and log in again, after a reboot all should be fine again.

I removed sddm-theme-patience and it duly removed everything as the first post, I then reinstalled console-common and removed desktop-sessions but if I tried to remove anything else it wanted to reinstall sddm-theme-patience,so I just reinstated as it was before.

However I eventually found the dependence was patience-wallpaper and removing that also removed sddm-theme-patience and patience-sddm-settings, eventually got there.  :D
