A couple of things related to this package:

* This is a fork of the unity-greeter on Ubuntu (lightdm-unity-greeter as it appears here on AUR) and many options on the PKGBUILD were copied and tested as much as possible from there, if you think that there is a different or better option for compiling, you can email me with some options and I will consider them before copying here.

* So far everything is working good, you may see some warnings while compiling but so far I haven't seen anything broken or not working, just don't forget to make the change on the lightdm settings to use this greeter (the name of the executable in the xsession folder it's called "slick-greeter" with no quotes). You can check the LightDM article here on the wiki for more information

* Although a fork of it, this package has nothing to do with the lightdm-unity-greeter, so please don't request to make this package a conflicting one with that (unity-greeter on AUR relies on a patched version of lightdm as well, which conflicts with the original lightdm), also I suggest you not to compile this package with the patched lightdm-ubuntu since I cannot guarantee that it may work
