SYNOPSIS

       Configuration   loads   all  files  in  the  configuration  directories  followed  by  the
       configuration file in the order listed below with the latter having  the  most  precedent.
       Changes should be made to the local configurations.

       /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d
              System configuration directory

       /etc/sddm.conf.d
              Local configuration directory

       /etc/sddm.conf
              Local configuration file for compatibility

DESCRIPTION

       This file configures various parameters of the sddm display manager sddm(1).  If this file
       is not available, default values are used.

OPTIONS

       [General] section:

       HaltCommand=
              Halt command.  Default value is "/bin/systemctl poweroff".

       RebootCommand=
              Reboot command.  Default value is "/bin/systemctl reboot".

       Numlock=
              Change numlock state when sddm-greeter starts.  Valid values are on, off  or  none.
              If property is set to none, numlock won't be changed.  Default value is "none".

       InputMethod=
              Set  the  Qt  input  method for the greeter.  Tablet users with Qt Virtual Keyboard
              installed can set this to "qtvirtualkeyboard" for the  on-screen  keyboard.   Other
              known  values  are "ibus" for the Intelligent Input Bus, or "compose" for dead keys
              support.  Leave this empty if unsure.

       Namespaces=
              Comma-separated list of paths bound to  Linux  namespaces  to  enter  with  setns()
              before  starting  the  user session.  For example, to enter network namespace mynet
              created with ip netns add mynet, the  value  might  be  /run/netns/mynet.   Default
              value is empty.  (The value is ignored if the operating system is not Linux.)

       [Theme] section:

       ThemeDir=
              Path    of    the   directory   containing   theme   files.    Default   value   is
              "/usr/share/sddm/themes".

       Current=
              Name of the current theme.  By default this setting is empty, meaning the  embedded
              theme will be used.

       FacesDir=
              Path   of   the   directory   containing  face  files,  face  files  should  be  in

       CursorTheme=
              Name of the cursor theme to be set before starting the display server.

       EnableAvatars=
              When enabled, home directories are searched for ".face.icon" images to  display  as
              their  avatars.  This can be slow on some file systems.  When disabled, all avatars
              will be default. Themes may choose to hide them altogether.  Default value is true.

              Path  to  the user session log file, relative to the home directory.  Default value
              is ".local/share/sddm/xorg-session.log".
