I'm not sure what you mean with "Raising awareness". If you want to make 
developers aware of problems, it wouldn't help to mention them on this 
user support list. If you want to make other users aware, it may help a 
few people who read your post before they also run into the same 

It's a pity if your bugs didn't get fixed. Then I can understand that 
you don't like to further report bugs. I had a better experience - I 
have reported several bugs over the years and I think most (not all) 
have been fixed.

Well, from the subject of the thread I concluded it was a sddm issue and 
therefore I suggested the appropriate command. But as you wouldn't 
report the bug it was useless anyway.
