I've fixed the patch and also switched to the github source. Note, that I changed the dependency names to the real package names, rather than .so files.

ATTENTION: The package is not functional for me. Lightdm always restarts with an error.

I have started to compile the package, and I was given an error:

==================
Could you give me all the packages with package dependencies? The problem is very important.

Just to note that version 2.0.2-2 still works.

To do that I had to:
1. Clone this git: 'git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/lightdm-pantheon-greeter.git/'
2. Go into the folder;
3. Checkout v. 2.0.2-2: 'git checkout 2c0979827'
4. Compile the package as usual: 'makepkg -si'
5. Change greeter settings on lightdm.conf
6. Done!

Because it's not a dep of the greeter, but of one of its deps, obviously.

f4hy commented on 2016-09-14 06:41

Why is gala-bzr not listed as a dependency then?

alucryd commented on 2016-09-13 12:16

The only bzr package required for this to work is gala-bzr, because there hasn't been any release yet. Stable versions are enough for everything else.

f4hy commented on 2016-09-01 02:58

Issues with building the new version (3.0) seem to come from it now requiring much greater hooks into other pantheon objects, like the wingpanel.

What changed? Is this package going to continue to require more and more of the rest of pantheon? It seems like we are in a bad state if this non dev package requires a few *-bzr packages to be able to install.

wbthomason commented on 2016-08-26 15:40

Yes - that package also seems to be missing dependencies. Installing gala-bzr provided libgala.so for me.

mareke commented on 2016-08-26 07:28

While manually installing wingpanel I am getting "error: target not found: libgala.so".
