Description T Adams 2020-04-28 07:14:21 UTC
In SDDM 18, I had added parameters in the [Users] section of  /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/00-general.conf to prevent the user's name from being shown on the sddm log-in screen.

This morning's zypper dup to the 20200425 included an upgrade from sddm 18 to 18.1.  When I rebooted, I discovered that these customizations in 00-general.conf had been erased.  Everything under ReuseSessions=true had disappeared.

I edited the file in vim and made everything right again, but still thought I should let you know.

Why would you put 00-general.conf edits in /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d/ instead of /etc/sddm.conf.d/? /usr/lib/ is there for rpm/zypper/yast to manage. /etc/ is where admin/local customizations belong. 'man sddm'

Thanks for setting me straight.  When I configured this KDE system as a fresh install about a month ago, I followed the directions at:


which indicated that /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d comes first.  But I now see that putting the parameters in /etc/sddm.conf.d/kde_settings.conf works fine.
