config: provide example configuration for multi-seat setups
Seats other than seat0 need custom configuration. Provide that with a default configuration file so we can share it across distros. This file intentionally does not end in .conf so it won't get picked up by the server after a normal installation. gdm, or whatever starts up the servers will have to explicitly specifiy this config file. This file replaces the one currently written by systemd's multi-seat-x binary: CC: Lennart Poettering <> Signed-off-by: Peter Hutterer <> Reviewed-by: Dan Nicholson <>
