Simple Desktop Display Manager (SDDM) is a display manager (a graphical login program) for the windowing systems X11 and Wayland.[citation needed] SDDM was written from scratch in C++11 and supports theming via QML.[4]

SDDM is free and open-source software subject to the requirements of the GNU General Public License version two or later.

LXQt defaults to SDDM.

Adoption[edit]

In 2013, Fedora KDE members decided to default to SDDM in Fedora 21.[5]

Simple Desktop Display Manager was adopted as default graphical login program by Hawaii.[6]

KDE chose SDDM to be the successor of the KDE Display Manager for KDE Plasma 5.[6][7]
