I can confirm an issue @staticfloat faced. If gnome-settings-daemon-elementary is installed, this lightdm theme works fine. But gala-git doesn't start in this case. And gala works fine with official gnome-settings-daemon package. But this lightdm theme doesn't.

Edit: After some research I've found that this changes helps (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e0u3EAONk3S7ZBM3XVbuzSpR0GEr47rr/view?usp=sharing). But I suppose I could break something doing that.

I am having trouble with this greeter; when I try to login to a pantheon session, authentication passes, but the session exits immediately and I'm dumped back into the greeter. I will happily upload any logs or anything that would be helpful in understanding what's going wrong, but as it is, I can't find anything suspicious in my lightdm or X logs.

alucryd Even after installing gnome-settings-daemon-elementary it doesn't login. When I log in it just shows the wallpaper and the desktop never loads

Shouldn't this package depend on gnome-settings-daemon-elementary since it's required for this to work ?

@SolarAquarion: Thanks for the patch, adapted it a bit to address the issue reported by quequotion.

@quequotion: thanks for the report, should be fine now.

Tried to build with the recommended patch update, but the package will not install because: lightdm-pantheon-greeter-git: /usr/sbin exists in filesystem

Can't really tell if that's a problem with the arch packaging (eg. paths patch) or if upstream's install method attempts to overwite /usr/sbin.

I'm terrible with cmake :(

I found this patch file to work better: http://dl.tyzoid.com/lightdm-pantheon-greeter-paths.patch (sha256sum) 1ed9061d847d578e934d1ba1dade471e8814111da988c7773edb99882f2fe655.

That said, I needed to create the directory /etc/dconf/db, because it didn't exist on my system. Not sure what was up with that either, I'm not familiar enough with dconf to be able to diagnose that problem further, but it installed fine after creating the directory.
