hi there - it might be, that there is already a similar issue report, i didnt find one at least. As we all know, is there currently no (official) Kuser KCM for plasma5. I suggest to develop it, based on that one:
Does your distribution have "kde-user-manager"? The actual package name could be different, but this is the official Plasma 5 user KCM.
See also https://cgit.kde.org/user-manager.git
Yes, i mean one without gobjects, gtk-docs and so on?
I do not understand. The Plasma user KCM does not use gobjects or GTK. I suggest to report it as a bug to your distribution.
I see now that Gentoo and Fedora build it without accoutservice - so its seems to be possible, thanks a lot. (Other distros like Debian/Ubuntu build it with that)
The Fedora package of plasma-user-manager actually has a runtime dependency on accountsservice, it is needed.
But the bigger issue is that this does not have remotely the functionality of KUser (and neither has the linked KaOS user-kcm as far as I can see). No management of system users, no specifying home directory and login shell, no group management. So we are still forced to ship the kdelibs4 KUser in Fedora.
FYI, https://github.com/lxde/lxqt-admin might be an alternative of interest to distros.
It is just to say that as simple as Kuser may seem it is of great value.
Of course we can live without it because we can have the same results using the console but what can be done in 10 seconds with Kuser will take 2 or 3 minutes without it (at least for me, I always have to google for the right commands and arguments for user and groups manipulation)
