Hi Adsicks ,

I'd like to translate this page into German, but it seems like this isn't possible at the moment. Can this be changed ?

Well, after more than 5 years, article now can be translated. --Winterheart (talk) 16:27, 9 May 2023 (UTC)

Config files

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

This article is a little confusing because it mixes 0.18 and pre-0.18 config file locations. I tried to fix it. I think maybe everything after Prior to 0.8 should be deleted (in that section). I just installed 0.18 and I didn't have to change anything in /usr/share/sddm/. It looks like ARM is maybe using an older version? I was too chicken to delete it.
