9 There are some themes you could choose from, or make your own to improve the
10 aesthetics of its default appearance. Access to themes may be available via
11 your desktop environment's settings, or by setting them manually in sddm.conf.

18 The default /usr/share/sddm/sddm.conf.d/00default.conf has:
20 # Initial NumLock state. Can be on, off or none.
21 # If property is set to none, numlock won't be changed
22 # NOTE: Currently ignored if autologin is enabled.
23 Numlock=none
25 You can change this in yours to 'on' and see if it makes any difference.
