Bug Description

Hi everyone,

user-setup configures SDDM autologin only for Plasma and ignores other DEs/WMs because it only only writes a hardcoded /etc/sddm.conf:


As LXQt also recommends using SDDM, that needs to be changed. I've submitted a patch at

Best regards!

For some reason which I don't understand, my fix isn't working. sddm.conf every time contains plasma.desktop, even when the file doesn't exist.
