Summary0005215: Missing Kali theme in sddm
DescriptionThe kali-root-login package configures breeze as the default sddm theme but breeze is not installed thus sddm falls back to the maui theme without Kali branding.
Plus: the "elarun" theme looks like a better option for the login screen.

1. Installing "sddm-theme-debian-elarun" as part of the KDE desktop, and
2. changing the "current theme" in sddm.conf from "breeze" to "debian-theme"

will fix that.
Steps To ReproduceBoot the kde image.

Should be fixed with kali-meta 2019.2.0 (to add the dependency on the theme to kali-desktop-kde) and kali-root-login 2019.2.0 that I just uploaded to kali-dev to update the configuration file. I also updated the sdm settings to make sure that systemd-coredump does not appear on the list of users to select.
