I'm using Andromeda theme and tried to change the background. I got the Andromeda default theme and no avatar (which is a PNG). The lock screen theme is still Breath ( preview: https://github.com/manjaro/artwork-breath/blob/master/sddm-theme/preview.png ).
I'm using Plasma 5.10.5 on Manjaro stable (Manjaro 17.0.2 Gellivara)
Feel free to ask me any information about this issue.
Please run systemsettings from the command line, change the wallpaper and paste any output.
Also, it's interesting that it's the manjaro background not ours..it implies they've done some patching somewhere, which might not be quite right.
Do you know where I can get relevant manjaro pkgbuild files?

I'm not sure, I'm not a developer, but this is the source code: https://github.com/manjaro
Oh, they literally fork the entire theme: https://github.com/manjaro/artwork-andromeda/tree/master/sddm-theme
Their code /looks/ ok though, it still tries to load from a config.
Do you still have the upstream "Breeze" theme, if so, can you test if that works nicely?
Can you show me: /usr/share/sddm/themes/andromeda/theme.conf.user

Do you mean if I have the "Breeze" SDDM theme? no, I don't, but if you mean the plasma theme, it does work nice indeed.

Thank you for your replies!
It seems we can get in that state if we don't copy the background picture.
Is the image you're selecting a local file on your own filesystem?

Yes, it is. It's on a local folder located in ~/Imágenes (in English Pictures)/[...]
Can you test something stupid?
Can you try from a patch without any accents.
I can't believe this worked!! o_o
I can't believe I have a stupid bug :/
I'm sure I've heard of this somewhere before for some other auth thing.
OK I tried to see if this could also fix the avatar not been shown but it doesn't (at least not with the PNG image ~/.face) haha I think I'll research in a couple of days about it!
Thank you so much for your support! You've been very helpful!!

Hello. What about Cyrillic in path? Did anyone tried?

Force KAuth helpers to have UTF-8 support
Our helper runs as root and doesn't have the user's environment
(including $LANG). This defaults to one without UTF-8.
Without a locale with UTF-8
QFileInfo::exists("/backgrounds/crepé.png") returns false.
This causes problems in the SDDM KCM's code to set a wallpaper. (and
