Thread: Every user is displayed twice at the login screen

  1. #1

    Default Every user is displayed twice at the login screen

    I use SDDM with KDE Plasma 5, and in my login screen every user is displayed twice. I'm talking about userland users, not system users.

    I've also tried to create ex novo a new test user, just to see the outcome, and also this one is displayed twice (so I'm sure that this is nor related to current users' configuration).

    It is more an annoyance than a real issue, but what can be the cause of this? And, can this behavior be prevented?

    A strange problem indeed, and one I've never seen nor heard of yet.

    Maybe the users are listed twice in /etc/passwd?
    Just a thought.

    I suppose I should look at the sddm source code to see where it takes the users from exactly to be able to provide further suggestions, but that may take some time.

    PS: is this a standard local system or are you maybe using something like LDAP?
    I'm asking because I found this: https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/686

    I don't see this. Updated this afternoon to KDE Plasma5 5.8, but didn't see it before either.

    A question: No remainders left in de /etc/pam.d/* files from experiments to get pam_kwallet working ? :-). I had some issues after editing sddm-greeter

    /etc/passwd correctly lists every user just once.

    I'm on a local system, it's just my daily work laptop; like I said, it just happens at the login screen, not in /etc/passwd, and I can correctly login with both displayed options (I don't know if I'm clear enough, it seems to be a duplicate *display* of the same item, not a duplicate item *itself*).

    It happens now with Plasma 5.8 and it happened before with previous versions, and doesn't seem to affect functionality of the system at all.

    I had modified pam configuration just for helping you on the other thread, then reverted back to standard configuration; so I guess it is not the source of this issue.

    ROTFL. I jumped in in that thread with a "hey, I don't need it, but if we serve it it should work" .

    My user account is displayed twice also in the SDDM KCM module, in Startup and Shutdown > Login Screen (SDDM) > Advanced > User

    Some suggestions on how to solve this?

    On the system that i clean-installed two days after the official release i had duplicated display icons on kde's task bar after i changed the display language and adjusted localization to a different than the default. The removal of one of the two icons was not possible.

    Edit
    I had this issue on Leap 42.2 KDE.I didn't see that this issue is on Tumbleweed.
    I apologize for that. If the moderators think that this post does not belong here please remove it where else
    appropriate.

    Well, the bigger "problem" is that your post does not seem to be related to this at all (the topic is about duplicated users, you are seeing duplicated task bar items).

    So please open a new thread, and I'd suggest to add a screenshot to clarify your problem.

    Well, that's actually unrelated to SDDM though I think, the config module uses KDE's facilities to get the user accounts IIRC.
    Are they listed twice in KDE's user manager or the login screen too?

    If not, I actually do not see a point in trying to fix that at all TBH.
    That "User" setting is just to specify which user should Auto-Login, and has absolutely no effect in openSUSE anyway.
