Multiple Users (SDDM) on Asus Rog Ally

Hi there,

how can I enable SDDM on my Asus Rog Ally?

Thanks for your help, Bazzite is awesome!

This is something that is not officially supported and not something we test for so there is a high possibility this will break and there will be no support for it.

You can remove (or blank out) the autologin file from /etc/sddm.conf.d/
If you need to restore the file you can find it inside /usr/etc/sddm.conf.d/

This will:

  • Enable SDDM login
  • Enable Qt virtual keyboard for SDDM (unless you deleted that file too)
  • “Switch to desktop” and “Return to gamemode” will log you out to SDDM

This is not a recommended change, you will be on your own.

Well, at least its possible! Thank you very much!

forgot to mention you might also have to run sudo systemctl disable bazzite-autologin.service

Slightly more general question: how do I make sure the change to the files in /etc/sddm.conf.d/ stick? When I modify them and read them back afterward, they seem changed, but after I log out and back in, they are restored to their original state.
