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

Hi @Almin

1) Related to the first thing: I noticed what you are mentioning me after I upload the package; upstream accepted my fix and now I am waiting for them to upgrade the package so I can do those changes here

2) Related to the second thing: I know that gksu has some issues on some distros outside Mint/Ubuntu, as a workaround, since it pulls gksu as a dependency you can try to check the "Privilege Granting" menu, which allows you to check the behaviour of gksu, on that program you can check the attached picture so you can leave it on a behaviour similar to Mint; that should do the trick

Hey Sam-Burgos,

I tried the package out realizing two things:
1. The file /usr/bin/lightdm-settings doesn't seem to have the execute(x)-bit set. I hade to run "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/lightdm-settings" to be able to execute it.
2. That authentification thing doesn't seem to work. I could only run it with sudo or as root.

Apart from that; great work! Thank you very much!
