Sadly, when pressing enter, it isn't prompting anymore.

sudo howdy test works just fine but unlocking or in general giving permissions not.

The PKGBUILD from vixallen also works for me. Thanks!

the following PKGBUILD seems to work for me

The latest commit https://github.com/boltgolt/howdy/commit/95df4d2d48d772d88ad1a8f2be290ce38752bdd4 switches to the meson build system, and this appears to have broken the build here

Did you mean to run meson from the directory: "/home/chris/.cache/paru/clone/howdy-beta-git/src/howdy"?

Permissions are now 755 for directories and 644 for files. And howdy GTK should be back.

Can the gtk ui of this be reenabled ? I see that the lines installing the gtk ui are commented out in the commit just named "Workaround to make howdy work" but has other changes too.

pztrn commented on 2023-05-24 16:17 (UTC)

To make it work with KDE screen locker I have to give 0755 to directories and 0644 to all files in /etc/howdy (and /lib/security/howdy accordingly), otherwise screen locker, which works as regular user, unable to unlock screen.

Can you please fix it in PKGBUILD?
