I installed openSUSE with the Plasma desktop a few days ago. I enabled autologin since I had an encrypted disc. I logged out and selected Waylan at the login screen. Then I adjusted the display scaling. No matter how many times I tried, after a reboot, I was on X11 and scaling reverted to 100%. Is there any way to fix autologin so settings are saved? Settings are saved with no problem since I turned of autologin.
I do not use auto-login, but a logical approach looks to me:
- Switch off auto-login
- Login using Wayland so that Wayland is stored as the one to use for that user.
- Switch on auto-login for that user.
I have done that but as soon as I turn on autologin, I’m on X11 and scaling is back to 100%
Did you make sure that wayland is chosen for autologin in systemsettings5?
Workspace-> Startup&Shutdown->Login Screen (SDDM)->Behaviour->with session “…Wayland”
I did not. I logged out to choose Wayland.
For autologin you need to set it in systemsettings5. There is a dedicated dropdown menu for it.
Thanks. That seemed to work. I have a 4k monitor on this laptop. I should have gone with HD. I need 250% scaling to see everything properly with my bad eyes.
