Is anybody going to update this package? I would like to use this greeter

I have overcome the core-dump issue, but now I can't start GNOME 3 using unity-greeter. As soon as I have overcome this issue, I will update this package.

I have gotten all the dependencies built, but when I install lightdm-unity-greeter, lightdm core-dumps. I am still trying to figure out the issue so that I can update this package.

I will get this package updated over the next few days.

m.en- the title bar and window decorations are fixed with an updated version of ubuntu-themes.

I have updated this file and all the dependencies for unity-greeter. I may have to add another file to the AUR and update this package, ubuntu-themes. When I updated all the Unity-for-Arch files, the greeter didn't work correctly until I updated both unity-greeter and ubuntu-themes to the Yakkety repo. If anyone installs this on their system and on the top bar all your icons are crammed together, please let me know. Someone else already maintains ubuntu-themes here on the AUR, and as of right now the package is flagged out-of-date. I can provide you with the PKGBUILD to build ubuntu-themes with the latest information.

I'm sorry for all the problems building this package. I have attempted to correct the problem, but so far have been unsuccessful. I am considering adding older files to the AUR so that I can get an older verison of the greeter running if it doesn't impact working packages. Stay tuned... eraxe, I have a pkgbuild for gtk3-ubuntu 3.20, but it breaks the functionality of the greeter. I have been running a broken greeter for quite some time, because I need 3.20 to run gnome-terminal. I just built the unity-greeter for 16.10, but it has the same functionality problems. If I can figure out how to fix the problems, I will let you know. If you want to go back to original files, find the packages that were upgraded to the -ubuntu files, delete them, then reinstall the old non-ubuntu tagged files. That should revert you to Arch defaults.

It downloaded many dependencies and useless packages and replaced alot of my packages with -Ubuntu packages. I wasted an hour on this and i have no idea how to reverse the operation and replace the -ubuntu packages. Any help would be great.

I got this compiling with gtk3-ubuntu 3.18 with a dirty hack. @@ -68,8 +69,11 @@ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --sbindir=/usr/bin \ --libexecdir=/usr/lib/lightdm - + make || : + sed -i 's/gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click/gtk_button_set_focus_on_click/g' src/prompt-box.c + sed -i 's/gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click/gtk_button_set_focus_on_click/g' src/shutdown-dialog.c + sed -i 's/gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click/gtk_button_set_focus_on_click/g' src/main-window.c sed -i '1i#include <gtk/gtkx.h>' src/menubar.c make } But still gtk+ 3.20 is really needed, should wait longer. I couldn't find any aur package on unity, so... Does, anyone having problems regarding gtk+ 3.20 on unity regarding the title-bars or window-decorations?

Unfortunately, this is a problem with gtk3-ubuntu. I downgraded gtk3-ubuntu to version 3.18 because 3.20 breaks the functionality of the greeter. Problem is, you need 3.20 to build this file. There's only a couple of options. #1, change the PKGBUILD to point to the 3.20 files, build gtk3-ubuntu on version 3.20, upgrade to 3.20, build lightdm-unity-greeter, then downgrade gtk3-ubuntu for the greeter to work properly (or you can use the broken greeter, but you'll be stuck with a single DE/WM and a poorly functioning greeter). The bad thing with this is I've found that it breaks other programs to downgrade gtk3-ubuntu (specifically gnome-terminal). The other option is to wait until Ubuntu starts developing 16.10 (16.04 development is frozen), and when they release unity-greeter that works correctly with gtk 3.20, I'll update the package. I'm still working on Unity-for-Arch packages, and if I stuble across a fix, I'll let you know.
