     216          This command generates an <emphasis>example</emphasis> config file,
     217          which depends on several conditions of the system where it is
     218          generated. A few options are <emphasis>defaults</emphasis> from
     219          upstream.  If there is a previously installed
     220          <filename>/etc/sddm.conf</filename>, it will generate a replica. When
     221          it is generated during an X session, some session configurations are
     222          replicated, e.g. if the cursor from the Adwaita theme is already
     223          configured, you will obtain <emphasis>CursorTheme=Adwaita</emphasis>
     224          in the example file generated.

     488        not hit any problem, in this case.
