tagline: From openSUSE
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.
- Extremely themeable.
- Support both of X11 and Wayland windowing systems.
The SDDM configuration file can be found at /etc/sddm.conf. See
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.
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.
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.
