When I switch on my device, the PIN screen is with a light background and hair's-width digits on the on-screen keypad. Is there a user-editable CSS file some on the system that I could edit to my preferences? For example, I'd make the numbers fat and light, and use a pitch-black background.

Maybe other users would want the keys in landscape mode, or a custom layout, say, with the numbers out of ordinal sequence. The PIN screen could show a random four-digit number with which the user would have to sum the difference to get to the integer value of their PIN.

Given that the file we need is /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/sim/PinQueryWindow.qml, I guess it would need to have a default, read-only (CSS?) file to fall back on. and any number of user-space CSS or QML (or both) files to use if available, referenced by the sim/PinQueryWindow.qml.

I would say the current PIN screen layout is generally ugly, gradient background has nothing in common with all the other UI. Looks like a stub or a test screen from the very beginning of the system development.
