I found the solution! It's because ibus is properly installed. so do
`sudo apt remove --purge ibus`
after this, do
`sudo apt install ibus` (or build it from source using the tar.gz file here http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/ibus)
reboot your PC.

Now do
`ibus-daemon -d -n --desktop=KDE`

This works perfectly for me and now I can type my password into any prompt, promptly! :P
