Anyone use sddm and actually get auto login to work?


So I've been trying out sddm since so many distro's seem to be moving to it, but for the life of me, I can't get auto login to work. Is there a trick to it, is it actually possible? I generated a full sddm.conf file, set autouser="myself" but it still sets at the login screen. Everything is fully updated, and I do have the kcm-sddm installed (or sddm-kcm, I can't think of which right now, and I'm not on Arch at the moment)

Thanks for any help.

I don't use SDDM myself, but I have seen a bug reported with this:
https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/236

...and someone did post a working config. Granted, this is for Fedora, but may work for you:
