Thanks. But that's a manual operation, isn't it? What I want is to have
sddm as default (if it's really required for Plasma) right after OS
installation from DVD media. Just like how gdm comes up now.
It should just work to do that, provided sddm is the only login manager
installed. Otherwise, it's a race (whichever login manager that gets
installed first wins).
That's why I was wondering if it's OK to have gdm.
gdm is ok, but lacks some features, like user switching and I think shutting
down from inside you're user session (you my have to logout+shudown in 2
steps instead of 1).
