Archlinux themes for SDDM

After moving to Plasma 5 (and therefore to SDDM) I was missing some of my favourite KDM themes, so I decided to port them to SDDM and to adapt them a bit to the SDDM  and Plasma 5 design language.

All the credit goes to the original creators!

archlinux-themes-sddm based on archlinux-themes-kdm

sddm-theme-archpaint2 based on kdm-theme-archpaint2

sddm-theme-archpaint2-breeze withh some more breeze flavour

I hope you like them smile

Re: Archlinux themes for SDDM

@SirMyztiq, @mouseman,
thank you for your feedback.

If anybody is interested, now there is also a Plasma5 theme based on archpaint2:
plasma-theme-archpaint2

Hope you like it!

Sorry for noobish question - how to install something like that with .tar.bz2? I'm not asking about installing it using yaourt, but the ones above.

That's probably because the system doesn't "recognize" the screen size and it defaults to /usr/share/sddm/themes/archpaint2-breeze/components/artwork/background.png, which is a link to /usr/share/archlinux/wallpaper/arch_paint_2_1600x1200.png
You could try to replace that link to a one that is close to your screen size. Have a look into /usr/share/archlinux/wallpaper/, choose one that fits nicely your screen and then enter

ln -s /usr/share/archlinux/wallpaper/thepictureyouchoose.png /usr/share/sddm/themes/archpaint2-breeze/components/artwork/background.png

Well, the easiest way is to use the associated AUR packages, as you said. Otherwise you need to copy the file manually in the right place. You might want to read the PKGBUILD to understand where the files  go.

Yes, you can do the same process again if you want to change wallpaper.
