This patch removes the shadow from the usernames on the login and lock screens. It also restricts the clock shadow to just the opaque (unfocused) versions of each screen.

I can't get any blur with software rendering though?
Another problem too - forcing software rendering leaves the username with an outline, but the action buttons without any shadow or outline (and no blur)
EDIT: The outline seems to work though, with software rendering enabled
except that it's really faint so I'd recommend using styleColor: "black" instead
Yes, sorry for not mentioning that - I didn't see any blur with software rendering and the labels didn't have outlines.
I've been using QT_QUICK_BACKEND=software.
It looks pretty bad, even with outlines:
Maybe we should implement some kind of crude substitute for the wallpaperfader blur effect and add more contrast to the buttons (icons and labels) while we're at it, so that the software rendering version looks good too.
I'd suggest only to make the tool button frames visible (for stuff like keyboard layout etc.) and just give an outline to rest of the textual elements. I wouldn't bother too much with icons.
