Solarized theme for sddm
This theme is inspired by Numix sddm theme
by Inti Alonso and the default sddm theme, maui (https://github.com/sddm/sddm).
Wallpaper was created using inkscape.
It also uses some icons from Numix icon theme
(shutdown, warning and down arrow icons).

theme.conf file (in the theme folder,

with your exclusive font selection. For example, to change to Montserrat font:
