    KDE Plasma: Cannot login into 2nd user with sddm

    Hi all,

    I noticed today, that I could not login into my 2nd user with sddm. On any attempt the system fell back into the login screen. This happened with direct login or switch user.

    I could remedy the issue by downgrading sddm to sddm-0.14.0-10.fc26.x86_64.

    My /etc/pam.d/sddm as follows
    [root@linux ~]# cat /etc/pam.d/sddm
    auth     [success=done ignore=ignore default=bad] pam_selinux_permit.so
    auth        substack      password-auth
    -auth        optional      pam_gnome_keyring.so
    -auth        optional      pam_kwallet5.so
    auth        include       postlogin
    account     required      pam_nologin.so
    account     include       password-auth
    password    include       password-auth
    session     required      pam_selinux.so close
    session     required      pam_loginuid.so
    session     optional      pam_console.so
    -session    optional    pam_ck_connector.so
    session     required      pam_selinux.so open
    session     optional      pam_keyinit.so force revoke
    session     required      pam_namespace.so
    session     include       password-auth
    -session     optional      pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start
    -session     optional      pam_kwallet5.so
    session     include       postlogin
    [root@linux ~]#
    My primary user worked fine. The difference that I am aware of is, that there is no kdewallet configured in my secondary user.

    Excerpt from
    # journalctl -ab | grep sddm

    Best regards,

    I tested a fresh user. Everything works fine with sddm-0.14.0-14.fc26.x86_64. A kdewallet is pre-configured, and automatically opened with pam-kwallet. So I decided that no bugreport is needed and switched over to the new user.
