Configuration file error on boot

Hello team -
On kernel 6.1.49-1-MANJARO and DE Plasma 5.27.7 I am getting the following error on boot, which shows before my login page:

“Configuration file “/var/lib/sddm/.config/sddm-greeterrc” not writable. Please contact you system administrator”

Well, that’s me :-> but I don’t know what it means or wants me to do.
Thanks in advance for your help.


First thing any administrator should learn is how to copy paste errors into a search engine.

Try this:

sudo chown -R sddm:sddm /var/lib/sddm/.config
