About

SDDM (Simple Desktop Display Manager) is the preferred Display Manager for KDE Plasma 5 and LXQt. It supports X11 and Wayland. Themes are supported by QML.


Features

  • Extremely themeable.
  • Support both of X11 and Wayland windowing systems.

Configuration

The SDDM configuration file can be found at /etc/sddm.conf. See

$ man sddm.conf

for detailed options information.

On systemd controlled systems, SDDM should work out of the box since it defaults to using systemd-logind for session management.

Autologin

SDDM supports automatic login through its configuration file, for example:

[Autologin]
User=john
Session=plasma.desktop

This configuration trigger a KDE Plasma session to be started for user john when the system is booted.


Troubleshooting

No User Icon

SDDM reads user icon from their ~/.face.icon or FacesDir/username.face.icon. SDDM user must have permissions to read those files.
