Hi! I'm try to install SDDM on my Slack 14.2 x86-60. I use the package downloaded form

https://slackware.pkgs.org/14.2/alienbob-x86_64/sddm-20140508git-x86_64-1alien.txz.html

then I check the dependicies

bash-4.3#ldd /usr/bin/sddm | grep 'not found'
whith no output therefore I change rc.4 file

if [ -x /usr/bin/sddm ]; then
exec /usr/bin/sddm
fi
and reboot to obtain a blanck screen. So by init 3 I do a greeter test

bash-4.3#sddm-greeter --test-mode --theme maui
sddm-greeter: error while loading shared libraries: libxcb-xkb.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I chek if library exist
bash-4.3# whereis libxcb-xkb.so.0
libxcb-xkb.so: /usr/lib64/libxcb-xkb.so.1 /usr/lib64/libxcb-xkb.so
Suddenly I re check the ldd outpu, then I see this

bash-4.3$ ldd /usr/bin/sddm
linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffca3feb000)
So I think this is a problem, than grep "not found" not see.

Thanks!

well qt5 is a dependency of SDDM so you need to get it one way or other. At least the version of qt5 at slackbuilds should match that required of SDDM slackbuild version.

There are advantages of going slackbuild route rather than straight to a binary package


Im on current 64 bit and have
qt5-5.9.7-x86_64-1ponce
qt5-webkit-5.9.0-x86_64-1ponce because they match the requirements of of a pkg i have.

from a 64 bit current context these are the dependencies with Sbo

Aliens latest package for sddm current appears to be sddm-20140508git-x86_64-1alien.txz

I think with Aliens package he has it built in with deps

Solved problems. SDDM show black screen because the default path was wrong. So once SDDM it's installed with the all dependicies, is necessary to change the default config, in order SDDM find files.
Next show how I config /etc/sddm.conf file

...
# Path of the directory containing session files,
# e.g kde-plasma.desktop
#SessionsDir=/usr/share/xsessions
SessionDir=/usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsession
...
...
# Path of script to execute when starting the desktop session
#SessionCommand=/usr/share/apps/sddm/scripts/Xsession
SessionCommand=/usr/share/sdd/scripts/Xsession

# Path of the directory containing face files
# Face files should be in username.face.icon format
#FacesDir=/usr/share/apps/sddm/faces
FaceDir=/usr/share/sddm/faces

# Path of the directory containing theme files
#ThemesDir=/usr/share/apps/sddm/themes
ThemesDir=/usr/share/sddm/themes

# Name of the current theme
CurrentTheme=elarun
...
