Fresh install: trying to install kde-plasma gives dependencie problem



I have made a fresh Funtoo install and now, I want to install kde-plasma.

Following the guide https://www.funtoo.org/KDE_Plasma_5, I add the mix-in kde-plasma-5.

Then, when running "emerge -auvDN --with-bdeps=y @world kde-plasma/plasma-meta", I get the following error:


emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "x11-misc/sddm[consolekit(-)?,elogind(+)?,systemd(-)?]

(dependency required by "kde-plasma/plasma-meta-5.16.1::kde-kit" ebuild])

(dependency required by "kde-plasma/plasma-meta" [argument])

And when I try to emerge sddm alone, I see that x11-misc:sddm-0.19.0::desktop-kit will be emerge with the USE flags


USE="pam -consolekit (-elogind) -systemd -test"

So, -elogind seems to be forced somewhere while elogind is set by the profile.

Is there any way around this problem? I already tried to use the mix-in kde-plasma-5-new instead but I get the same error there.
