ZSH is no issue anymore for 3 of our desktops

When we switched our shell from Bash to Zsh we were not able to login and came back to the sddm login screen.

It was never the fault of the packages nor the config of Zsh but the way these desktops are started.

Now you can use Zsh and Chadwm, Sway and Hyprland.
