sddm only works if plasma.desktop is in /usr/share/xsessions

Bug Description

Currently, casper hardcodes plasma.desktop session in /etc/sddm.conf (see scripts/casper-bottom/15autologin), because plasma is the only session using sddm.

I'm preparing a version of Lubuntu which will use sddm. The included patch replaces the plasma.desktop session by the Lubuntu one if it exists on the filesystem.

Simple solution would be to upgrade SDDM to version 0.14.0

I'd be happy if you could support my bug-report bug #1627340

Is there a test image available with ssdm for lubuntu at all?

I will upload a fix for this, but I have just realised that I do not have a way to test this.

Instead of using sed, I'd rather create a variable that tracks which sddm_session to put into the config file. I hope that is ok.
