Description:

For KDE Plasma only!
Chili is hot, just like a real chili! Spice up the login experience of your users, your family and yourself. Chili reduces all the clutter and leaves you with a clean, easy to use, login interface with a modern yet classy touch.

Chili for KDE Plasma is the desktop environment specific version with enhanced functionality . If you don't use Plasma as your desktop environment this theme won't work and you should instead install Chili for stand-alone SDDM.

Chili for KDE Plasma is highly customizable through its config file! You can alter the intensity of the background blur or even not have any blur at all! Have a custom password character or set the field to outline only. Things look too small on your screen? Change sizes to something that better suits your resolution! Don't like the circle? Use a custom PNG with transparency for your avatar! See the file or the Github README for details. You have an idea for an awesome feature? Comment your request on Github.

Please share some love and pling this theme if you're a supporter or up vote if you like this theme! You can become a supporter of opendesktop and the people who create content for your linux desktop for a one time donation for a full year. Your donation will help and encourage a lot of people to create new decorations, icons, themes and keep them maintained.

Let's help each other and get away from closed source enterprise driven content that gets dumped and unsupported after six months.
Let's make Linux popular!

Also be sure to check out my window decorations and folder icons that surely will fit well with your new login screen.

Install

"System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM) > Get New Theme".
To access this setting the sddm-kcm package has to be installed. If in doubt use your package manager to search and if necessary install sddm-kcm first.
The background can be changed to anything you want on the right hand side in "System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM)". Select the large green button next to "Background:"


Enjoy!



Notes

You might see some grey pixels around your user image which is caused by the the anti-aliasing of the opacity mask. You may change the fill color of the mask that resides in "components/artwork/mask.svg" to a color that better matches with your user images colors. Do not change the opacity of the mask. Take note that this might affect other user images with different colors present on your system.
To use a PNG file with transparency as your .face file please set the corresponding option UsePngInsteadOfMask in the config to true.


A word on my own

In the past years I have spent quite some hours on open source projects. If you are the type of person who digs attention to detail, know how much work is involved in it and/or simply likes to support makers with a coffee or a beer I would greatly appreciate your donation on my PayPayl account.

I'm sorry I don't quite understand your request. What do you refer to? The design of this Login Screen is finished and will not receive any further tweaks if it wasn't for bug fixes.

Beautiful theme, unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I am running plasma 5.10.5 on fedora 26 with a 1920x1080 resolution.
When I boot I get a black screen with the classic fedora login screen. Do you have a solution ?

The power icons are non responsive or seem to work when clicking above them not on them also there is no hover indicator. I guess this is a bug and a feature request.

Can you specify your resolution and Qt/KDE versions? I'll try to see if there's anything suspicious. Icons are working fine here. The hover transition is a fair request I'll add as soon as possible.

@dsreyes I uploaded a version with hover effects for the mentioned buttons and wrote some changes regarding their dimension calculations. Could you please try release 0.4.0? Also if the clicking area still is offset for you could you please confirm that this behavior is NOT present on the lock screen of breeze?

I can't find the button to install new themes in the login settings. Where do i have to copy it to install it manually.

Hello lackos, do you completely miss a section to configure sddm in your system settings? In that case make sure you have the configuration package installed: 'sudo pacman -S sddm-kcm'. If you do have the package installed and still can't find a way to set the theme you can manually download the file and extract the contents to /usr/share/sddm/themes/. Make sure all the files are inside the appropriately named folder (In this case 'nixos'). So the resulting path would look like /usr/share/sddm/themes/nixos/. After that you will have to point SDDM to your new theme by editing the config file which can be found at /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/sddm.conf
In the config file there's a '[Theme]' section with a key called 'Current='. Add the theme name to this key and you should be good to go: 'Current=nixos'. For more details please refer to the arch wiki on sddm: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SDDM

Hello, beautiful theme. Do you happen to know why when I am presented a login screen at bootup and I type my password, it doesn't show any text indicators (stars or bullets) in the text input field? It's as if the input field doesn't know it's focused, but if I type it and hit enter it logs me in still. I believe if I click the field it will visually show focus and the bullets/stars as I type (I will confirm this). Kind of a minor annoyance - it happens with the default theme and has for years, too. Is this a problem everyone else experiences or just me on this laptop I have? It's always docked with 3 monitors if that matters (I supposed I could undock it and try too...)

Sorry aplocher that's far beyond my tweaks. For myself I don't experience the mentioned issue. Please help the devs track this behavior on https://bugs.kde.org

On my 1080p laptop screen text and buttons look very small in comparison with your screenshots. What might cause this type of issue?

TaurohtaR I released a beta version with responsive font sizes. Would be great if you tried it and gave me some feedback on how it works!

Hello TaurohtaR. I thought this might happen. I'll soon look into this and try to adjust the fonts to a responsive size rather than a fixed point size, which is problematic on high dpi screens. For now please consider following the steps in "A word on tweaking the theme". Please bear with me!
