sddm-kcm depends on sddm which conflicts with other display managers. sddm is not required to run plasma5. It runs fine with lightdm. How/why it was determined to be a good idea to add provides/conflicts "display-manager' to all the DM packages is beyond me. I guess that really is the bug/issue that should be discussed?

This task depends upon
