Thx for the heads up, upstream now uses the same paths as we do :)

Land_oR: Thx for the report. I took this opportunity to bring the PKGBUILD up to speed with the regular and devel ones.

Hi, lightdm-default-config.patch doesn't work atm. This one worked for me:

applebloom: Thx! I've updated the package.

applebloom commented on 2013-04-16 00:43 (UTC)

Logind support was added in rev. 1641, so the patch "lightdm-1.5.1-systemd_login1_power.patch" is no longer needed.

commented on 2013-04-14 14:29 (UTC)

this wont compile for me, I have qt5-base installed but compilation fails saying it can't find a qt5 installation...

Package update: changed lightdm home to /var/lib/lightdm so that things like last selected user are remembered across reboots. You'll need to either remove and reinstall lightdm or modify the user yourself: 'sudo usermod -d /var/lib/lightdm lightdm'.

commented on 2012-12-14 15:44 (UTC) If factible use the fedora patch for systemd-logind support?....or is on upstream now??

commented on 2012-09-09 17:38 (UTC)

Could you enable introspection? It breaks LightDM's Python bindings.

eworm commented on 2012-04-06 12:40 (UTC)

Hm, I get the same error... Will look at that later. I suppose this could be related to the gcc update to 4.7.0. Did you change anything between the manual checkout and building the AUR package?

commented on 2012-04-05 18:31 (UTC)

When I do a manual checkout from lp:lightdm, compiling works fine. If I use the AUR package compiling fails. I have tested the parameters for configure.

@Huulivoide: I have !libtool in my OPTIONS array in /etc/make.conf. Any reason why to overwrite this in PKGBUILD instead of letting the user decide via system settings?

Huulivoide commented on 2012-03-15 11:29 (UTC)

You should add !libtool to options=() array to remove libtool .la files from the pkg

@Teho: Please do not flag out-of-date bzr packages. The package automatically builds with the latest version from bazaar repository.

falconindy commented on 2012-03-04 00:58 (UTC)

Well, trunk finally supports invoking PAM correctly (meaning it "works" with systemd). the environment is still nowhere near setup properly, though.

commented on 2012-02-26 15:14 (UTC)

When I use lightdm with systemd my session of LXDE doesn't start (black screen), I have to and restart lightdm with '/etc/rc.d/lightdm restart' to make it work. Anyone knows what happen?

How to build lightdm-bzr without gnome?

pisuka commented on 2011-10-13 02:43 (UTC)

I kinda lost interest in this package. Orphaning now, please feel free to adopt.

commented on 2011-10-09 04:29 (UTC)

I know this is a stupid question, but if LightDM is a gtk greeter, why does this package depend on qt? Looking at the other package (LightDM - which currently doesn't build) there is no qt requirement, yet this bzr version does???? Sorry, I'm lost. I really want to replace my (SLIMcurrently) DM - don't want GDM because of the gnome-shell requirements, KDM well that will just bring in heavy kde libraries and qt, LXDM worked once then fails to give me access to my home directory, SLIM I believe is unmaintained. Would love to try LightDM, but why qt??? Cheers.

cedeel commented on 2011-09-27 08:10 (UTC)

Please add provides=(lightdm) in your PKGBUILD

commented on 2011-08-17 15:36 (UTC)

The default python.patch has syntax errors, you need to comment out any lines that are not part of the code. I cannot change the original file (won't pass the check), so I made another file with this correction and pointed the patch to that.

pisuka commented on 2011-06-08 13:00 (UTC)

that's from ubuntu, right? also, this is a "trunk package", it always installs the latest version (534 as of this writing).

commented on 2011-06-05 19:54 (UTC)

lightd last vesion in bazaar is 502
