I am trying to hide users from login screen but it is not working when uising
➜ cat /etc/sddm.conf.d/hide.conf
Works only if I add it in main conf
➜ grep HideShells /etc/sddm.conf
➜ grep myuser /etc/passwd
By default, SDDM is configured to displays only users with a UID in the range of 1000 to 60513. If the UIDs of the desired users are outside this range then you will have to modify the range. - SDDM - ArchWiki
So it begs the question - what do you want to achieve?
I am trying to hide user
myuser with id
1404 from login screen.
I just pointed out that hiding with
HideShells works ok when using
/etc/sddm.conf but not when using a
.conf file inside
It is good practice to have overrides inside
conf.d/ dir because of updates which can overwrite conf files in
I don’t know if sddm is configured on manjaro/arch to not use
/etc/sddm.conf.d/ or is this a bug?
