I have KDE-Plasma on Arch. I recently changed my DE from Gnome to KDE because of some gdm issues. Everything is working great but while booting, a dialogue shows this prompt. Pressing Enter boots up the system normally but I want to know why this prompt is being shown and how can this be removed.

Configuration file "/var/lib/sddm/.config/sddm-greeterrc" not writable. Please contact your system administrator.

Got the same issue on my install.

Just touch the file at that address:

touch /var/lib/sddm/.config/sddm-greeterrc
