At the moment I’ve got both SDDM and Plasma running in Wayland. What I’m trying to do is create a smooth login and logout transition between the two without sudden black screens in and out that is caused by switching tty’s. That looks awful (for me) and is part of the little things that can make feel daily usage of Linux more polished.
Now, since both SDDM and Plasma are running wayland, then why is SDDM opening a new Wayland session in a new tty? Shouldn’t SDDM not just close the greeter and then fire plasma in the same tty by default? I want to make it this way. I have it all set-up as the ARCH manual tells me to.
Any tips on how to achieve that? I’m running latest sddm-git package.
Yeah, I did that. It’s all setup like that. Nvidia latest drivers are actually working fine.
It’s really SDDM who’s already running on kwin on wayland, that is opening a new tty and another wayland session. I opened a issue on Github.
After some digging, I discovered that no matter what settings you give sddm, it will always start X server. Yes, even if you have set the compositor to Wayland, even if you configure sddm to run in Kwin (running on Wayland), at start of the journal I see that it tried to start x.(and failed).
