Configuration file "/var/lib/sddm/.config/sddm-greeterrc" not writable

I just installed Manjaro-KDE on Dualboot with Windows 11. Every time I restart I get the error message in the title, but when I click “ok” I boot normally(?).
Is there anything to prevent this error from happening?
I also did not touch nearly anything except adding some fonts and installing the base-devel packages.
You can see the error window in the picture.

Thanks for your time - Leonardo


Hi, change the ownership of directory and its contents.
sudo chown -R sddm:sddm /var/lib/sddm/.config


This worked perfectly, thanks!

Point of information …
Do any of these posters use extra sddm software, such as extra themes, or a utility like sddm config editor ?

That’s a no from me, bud.

What do you exactly mean with posters? I just installed the newest, default stable Manjaro-KDE .iso-file.
