sddm package update forgets last session setting
Last modified: 2016-03-11 15:39:37 EST
Description of problem:
When upgrading sddm from 0.10.0-4 to 0.12.0-5, I noticed that, while
my last user account was still present by default, my previous session
setting ("Plasma") has been forgotten, and the session menu presented
the first entry in the session menu ("MATE" in my case) again. After
setting this back to "Plasma", the setting was stable even over multiple
logout and login.
After that, downgrading to sddm-0.10.0-4, the same occured. The session
menu showed "MATE" again and I had to change this manually back to "Plasma".
Rinse and repeat.
So, while the sddm package update preserves the last logged in user
account (no problem there), for some reason it misses to preserve
the last session setting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any? During testing: 0.10.0-4 and 0.12.0-5.
Up- or downgrade the sddm package.
Last session setting is forgotten on package update.
Last session setting is preserved.
