SDDM 0.1.0 Release Announcement Today, I am pleased to announce the very first official release of Simple Desktop Display Manager (SDDM). SDDM is a modern display manager for X11 based systems, aiming to be simple, fast and beatiful. It uses Qt and QtQuick technologies to achieve these goals. Probably the most prominent keypoint in SDDM is the ability to use QtQuick for user interfaces. It allows you to design fluid, animated user interfaces with hardware acceleration. And allows doing these with very little effort. In fact, the maui theme shown in the video below is around 170 lines of declarative QML code (not counting the empty lines and license header). Unlike most other display managers, you are not limited to changing the background or position of the input boxes. You are completely free in designing your interface. You only need to add a few lines of code to hook into SDDM backend and execute needed operations. SDDM does all these with minimal dependencies in a clean and compact codebase. Only dependencies are PAM, XCB and Qt. Translations, keyboard layouts and fast user switching are some of the features missing in this release. Hopefully we will add these and much more in subsequent releases. We also have a KCM for KDE system settings integration in the works. It is currenty pretty usable and allows changing the user interface, cursor theme and some other options. Still, we wanted to take our time to provide you a better experience. You can download the source tarball directly from github: https://github.com/sddm/sddm/archive/0.1.0.tar.gz Please, report every bug you encounter via https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues. Now go and bug your packagers until they provide regular packages for your distribution. ;) Cheers!

Are you starting sddm as root or a normal user?

Yok bu bağımsız yeni bir login manager. Koddan compile edebiliyorsanız github dan indirebilirsiniz: github.com/sddm/sddm Onun dışında da hangi distribution kullanıyorsanız ona göre birşeyler söyleyebilirim.

What does SDDM stand for?

I have written a reply on the other video. I agree that the top panel doesn't look good. This is programmer art :) By the way, you can always help by providing designs, mockups, icons or better complete themes. :)

Pretty theme and a terrible panel above

We have just released our first release yesterday. So I guess nobody had enough time to create new themes ;) But we already offer four themes with the source. Namely circles, elarun, maldives and maui. Additionally you can change the backgrounds by modifying theme.conf files inside the theme directory or use those as starting point to create your own theme.
