Apparently, this version solves the issue of missing text for non English locales. See this post.


SDDM configuration usually consits of user set options and distro defined options.
For example, a distro might want to specify a custom theme, but the
user's autostart name can't come from the distro.

Using the same config file leads to problems when upgrading.

To avoid such problems we introduced configuration directories as well as
the main config file /etc/sddm.conf.

Configuration is loaded in the following order:

    All files in /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d in alphabetical order
    All files in /etc/sddm.conf.d in alphabetical order
    Finally from /etc/sddm.conf for compatibility

Distributions should put their configuration in /usr/lib/sddm/sddm.conf.d while
users should write their settings to /etc/sddm.conf.d.
