SDDM Configuration

Postby dglent » Nov 5th, '17, 14:12

I had problems with the autologin since the update to mageia 6.

Firstly, i was trying to set it in the mcc Startup section.
The problem was that every time the option of autologin was unchecked!
I installed also the lxdm manager. Then the option stayed checked but no autologin with sddm (worked with lxdm)

I've found this application:
https://github.com/hagabaka/sddm-config-editor
which helped me to fix this.
I don't know exactly the setting that has make the autlogin to work, i remember that in the autologin section the line: "Name for session file for autologin session" was empty.

Now i have this sddm/conf:
Code: Select all
# Generated by SDDM Configuration Editor
[Autologin]
Relogin=true
Session=/usr/share/xsessions/lxqt.desktop
User=dglent

[Theme]
Current=mga-coffee
CursorTheme=whiteglass
FacesDir=/usr/share/sddm/faces

[Users]
MaximumUid=65000
MinimumUid=500
RememberLastSession=true
RememberLastUser=true


I remarked than now the Session section has the full path.

However, now it works, here is the package i used in order to install the application:
http://www.mageia-gr.org/rpm/6/x86_64/s ... x86_64.rpm

Well, this should have been fixed and seems to work for others, see e.g. https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17913

Also not sure if it really needs an app to just change a bunch of lines in a text file? But if it works for you ...
