|Summary||0008305: Title: SDDM Login Screen Freezes on Kali Linux after switching to KDE Desktop|
Description: After switching to Kali Linux KDE desktop from XFCE, the SDDM login screen freezes after entering the password or freezes on a black screen. Additionally, the login screen shows an "unknown user" instead of the actual user name that was used on XFCE. This issue appears to be caused by the fact that the original user had a four-digit PIN password when using XFCE, while Plasma requires passwords to be at least five characters long and include letters and numbers.
