Description of problem:
SDDM auto login not working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE Development Platform 4.14.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of Fedora 21 KDE spin.
2. In KDE System Settings, in "Login Screen (SDDM)" settings, tick "Auto Login" and choose an existing user from the combo box.
3. Reboot the machine.
Selected user does not auto login.
Selected user should auto login.
/etc/sddm.conf is as follows:

SDDM is working fine, it's sddm-kcm which is broken. It is still writing the old SDDM 0.9 sddm.conf entries, but the settings have been reorganized in SDDM 0.10. The KCM needs to be updated.
Example of working confoguration in /etc/sddm.conf is:
I found this from another user in Fedora forums.

Changes configuration locations to newer format and adds 'Session' value to configuration options for automatic login.
I've changed the groups and names of any configuration directives that were previously alterable in sddm.conf.
Upstream repositories apparently moved to: https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/workspace/sddm-kcm/repository
When I tried to manually edit the configuration file, I got a solid black screen when the Session was set incorrectly. So I've added the ability to set it. I've included two additional files from the projects.kde.org repository mentioned above to support changing this value. These files were apparently written for Qt 5 (and perhaps KDE 5), So I altered them to work with Fedora 21 as it is.
sorry for replying this late to this important thread. Thank you for the patch! I just take a look at it and it seems okay from the glance. Could you please tell me what version of sddm-kcm does it target? I didn't find any upstream commit nor Fedora package sources to which would your patch apply.
If this patch is just artificial and I need to apply it manually, just tell me and I'll do so.
Sorry, my bad, the patch is fine. Testing now.
