Manjaro ARM 20.06 sddm issue

After a fresh set up of Manjaro ARM 20.06 sddm reports persisting issue: “Failed to open authorization file "/var/run/sddm/{…”

How can anyone help you with such little information?

Please provide with more information on which device are you using, Which DE is installed?

Can you switch to TTY2 and get output of the below command.
inxi -Fzxi
Please share it here.


I know that the sddm/lxqt combination is broke right now in the lxqt profiles and gives that error.

The log entry is on my working KDE image on the pinebook pro and to verify it, i reproduced it on a fresh set up image of Manjaro ARM 20.06 (KDE) with no custom settings.
