(Bug) Unchangeable Plasma splash screen

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to System Settings > Appearance > Spash Screen
  2. Set Breeze splash screen and click apply
  3. Restart

Expected behavior

Spash screen changed to Breeze

Remember to click apply.

Also, Splash Screen is the screen that pops up, just after you login and before you get to the desktop. The Breeze one is a KDE logo and a spinner, I think.


It named Spash screen in KDE’s settings

What are you talking about?


I don’t know if it’s the same error I had in a previous topic Unable to select Breeze Start/splash screen

I recently reinstalled KDE several times, it was still a thing. I found several workarounds though.

When Global theme is Breath2, the launched splash/sddm screen is Breath2 if you select Breath2, obviously, but Breeze also.

To launch Breeze Sddm screen, I had to

  • Select Breeze/Breeze dark/Breeze twilight Global theme instead of Breath2
  • Or keep Breath2 global theme and replace the files from Breath2 Sddm by Breeze’s (to repeat after each Breath2 theme update)
