found it, see /etc/sddm.conf,
key, defaults to 7
This, and note the bug for man sddm.conf, where the explanation for
this config option should be documented, which it isn't:
"tl;dr: Add this block to your /etc/sddm.conf (create the file if it
The new version of sddm has a new configuration option
(DisableAvatarsThreshold) that disables the use of the avatars when the
amount of users is greater than this value. This option reduces the
time sddm takes to load in systems that have a large number of users,
that probably have their home directories using nfs automount.
The upstream default is 7, which is kind of low. If you have more than
7 users in your system you might want to raise this value, or you can
explicitly set the EnableAvatars value.
This is documented in the generated example configuration file in
(/usr/share/doc/sddm/sddm.conf), I'm requesting upstream to
document this option in the sddm.conf manpage."
The important file
seems to be nowhere to be found here on F26 .... or in any package that
might provide it for this system.... or I failed to search for it ...
