    Default How to disable media controls on lock screen?

    Hello everyone,

    The new feature "media controls on lock screen" from Plasma 5.10 seems amazing but in my case I don't the controls to be displayed on the lock screen. Anyone knows how to disable it?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'm researching this as well, no success so far.

    Posting the resources I found so far:
    - blog post when these were introduced: https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/bl...e-lock-screen/
    - possibly a commit that introduces the media controls: https://phabricator.kde.org/D3684

    It seems that there was supposed to be a config setting for it but it wasn't added at first.

    Oh, look:
    Code:
    /usr/share/plasma/look-and-feel/org.openSUSE.desktop/contents/lockscreen/LockScreenUi.qml
    /usr/share/plasma/look-and-feel/org.kde.breeze.desktop/contents/lockscreen/LockScreenUi.qml
    This is part of the plasma5-workspace-5.10.4-1.1.x86_64 package.

    Uh oh:
    Code:
                    Loader {
                        Layout.fillWidth: true
                        Layout.preferredHeight: item ? item.implicitHeight : 0
                        active: true // TODO configurable
                        source: "MediaControls.qml"
                    }
    Seems it's still not configurable.

    At least I think if we manually set "active: false" then it would disable it... until the next package update.

    If this source code is recent, it seems it hasn't been fixed in an upcoming version: https://github.com/KDE/plasma-worksp...eenUi.qml#L183

    Cool! You dug to such depth.

    I try to hard change the item in both files to `false`, and woo~~, the media control on lockscreen is gone.

    Add myself there. Hopefully there is a fix soon. It's very embarrassing to have a name of song on the lock screen while at work although it is not bad to listen to music while working.

    Raised https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1056919 to explore the "look and feel specific setting" approach.
