Login screen to have blank user name screen

Hi,
Leap42.1 Theme is Maldives
How to have login screen user name field be blank for a user to input a name?
Thanks

Setting “RememberLastUser=false” in /etc/sddm.conf (in the [Users] section) should work.

See also “man sddm.conf”.

Thanks for the info. it didn’t work.

Then try to remove the file /var/lib/sddm/state.conf. It might still use the value stored in there already even if RememberLastUser is false.

If that doesn’t help, please post /etc/sddm.conf.

Hi,

That removed the user name from login screen. The state.conf file had a line username=. I remed it out.

Thanks for your assistance.

I have been using openSUSE since version 10. It is a challenge to get it setup the way I want it. I do enjoy the mental stimulation. Once it is setup the way I desire, it is a pleasure to use it.

Windows, also, was somewhat of a challenge, also,

Hi,
The last username from the login screen has reappeared. Some function changes the **/var/lib/sddm/state.conf **to include the last user name. Below are copies of **/var/lib/sddm/state.conf **and the **/etc/sddm.conf files.
**
What files, in addition to these, do you suggest tha I modify?

Thanks for your help.

Hm, your sddm.conf looks ok, so this shouldn’t happen.

I will try to reproduce it. (I don’t use sddm myself normally, but have it installed…)
