A couple of things related to this package:

  • If you upgraded from version 1.2.2-1 to 1.2.2-2, check folders /etc/systemd/system/ and /usr/bin (both as root), you should see a file named "add-autologin-group.service" in the former and "add-autologin-group.script" in the latter, since this new upgrade reverts the changes from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2 after a lot of complains about it, you need to delete the files manually after stopping the systemd service first; it should mean no harm to any configuration on the system so you can delete them safely

  • If you upgraded from version 1.2.1 to 1.2.2, check the /etc/systemd/system/ folder (as root), you should see a file named "add-autologin-group.serv", rename it as "add-autologin-group.service", this is supposed to be a new service ported from the Manjaro team but somehow I slipped and I updated it with this issue, I already fixed it, but in case you see any "add-autologin-group.service not available" error, this is a manual solving situation. My apologies on this particular situation

  • It is the companion setting app for lightdm-slick-greeter (which I maintain also), if in the future it allows to check also on lightdm settings itself, I will remove or upgrade dependencies according to it

  • This package has nothing to do with the lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings, so you can have both installed (for now), if later I see that it allows to configure settings on any greeter (which I don't think that will be possible) I will think on making it a conflicting package

Any problems or bugs, you can explain it to me as detailed as possible so I can try to test it and/or report it to upstream

Greetings @porcaror, it seems that you still have lightdm-slick-greeter version 1.8.0, this is a new key introduced in version 2.0 of slick-greeter (which at the moment of writing this, is not available on Arch repos yet), either you need to install version 2.0 from my lightdm-slick-greeter here on AUR; or wait until version 2.0 appears on Arch repos

Sorry to disturb you. Under xfce, after clicking on the icon in the control panel, Login Window, and after introducing the password nothing happens. If I launch lightdm-setting as root, I have the following error message:

(lightdm-settings:6106): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 16:47:18.108: Settings schema 'x.dm.slick-greeter' does not contain a key named 'content-align'

Can you help me. Thanks, Roberto

Doesn't build. In Dutch: ==> FOUT: Eén of meer bestanden zijn niet door de geldigheidscontrole geraakt! -> error making: lightdm-settings

Thank you Sam-Burgos, I downgraded to 1.5.9-1 no problem.

@theone77: yeah, that's my fault to be honest, I went ahead and upgraded the package early but I encounter that error as well, after reporting to upstream they told me that lightdm-slick-greeter 1.6.0 has the required keys, which I confirmed

For now, the package (which is no longer under my control in AUR) continues in community-testing repos, and until they upgrade, the options are to manually add the keys on the schema file; temporary enable community-testing repo, upgrade to have that version of the package lightdm-slick-greeter and then disable the repo; or to downgrade to version 1.5.9 (some AUR helpers can help you with that)

All options are pretty risky or kind of technical, but until they upgrade the package, I ran out of available options

I am having an issue with starting lightdm-settings 1.6.0-1 resorted to the terminal sudo lightdm-settings which gave me this output: (lightdm-settings:7906): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 14:17:05.282: Settings schema 'x.dm.slick-greeter' does not contain a key named 'cursor-theme-name'

Checksum for 1.5.3 no longer matches.

Seems to (make)depend on lightdm-slick-greeter.

@Durag: this might be related with newer PyGObject libraries (remember that the version of libraries used in Arch are higher than those on Linux Mint), as of now I have found this particular information regarding the issue (I manage to reproduce it) and also posted your comment on Github (which if it is a bug you should redirect there) so we can check what might happen, other than that the program should be usable

@Haystack: in your case it is probably that you don't have a polkit agent installed on your environment (you can pick between mate-polkit, gnome-polkit or kde-polkit if I am not mistaken with the names). As for the "Login Window" that comes from upstream and they are the ones who put that name, if you wish you can create a request on Github so they can change the name
