seems like the program cant find gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click. Any ideas?

I apologize. I removed libindicator3 from the AUR and replaced it with libindicator-gtk3-ubuntu, then did not update lightdm-unity-greeter. It is updated and builds correctly.

Just after I started building it:

error: target not found: libindicator3

Chenxiaolong orphaned this package, so I took it over. Package is updated and should build correctly.

Okay, folks. I have added all the necessary files to the AUR to get this package working (libappindicator3 is up and running). I have heard nothing from Chenxiaolong for quite some time, so I'm not sure if he will continue to maintain this package, or if he will abandon it to someone else. If he were to abandon it, I'd take a stab at maintaining it in his stead.

I was able to get this package to build without libappindicator3. When you try to build this package (I use yaourt, which makes it MUCH easier), it will get all the way to libappindicator, then will tell you that libappindicator depends on libindicator-gtk2 and 3. Well, earlier in the procedure we installed libindicator and libindicator3. Libindicator and libindicator-gtk2 conflict with each other, and so do libindicator3 and libindicator-gtk3. Here's the way around this problem, until I can get libappindicator3 uploaded: When yaourt asks you if you want to edit the PKGBUILD, say yes. Tell yaourt which one to use, and the PKGBUILD will pop up. Navigate down to the makedepends line, and where you see libindicator-gtk2 and libindicator-gtk3, edit them to say libindicator and libindicator3. Once you have that done, navigate down to package_libappindicator-gtk2 section, and do the same where libindicator-gtk2 is listed. Do the same in the libappindicator-gtk3 section. If you do this correctly, this package will build and you'll have the Unity greeter installed on your computer!

To anyone who'd like to build this package- I have gotten just about everything this package needs either updated or created on the AUR. The only file that I'm missing right now is libappindicator3, which is currently owned by someone else. I have filed a request for that person to either upload a package or disown it so I can upload it. I'm pretty sure that after this is done, you'll be able to build this package successfully.

There's no libindicator3 package

Missing dependencies: unity-settings-daemon

Unfortunately I didn't succeed, it asked me to install unity as well :(

I'm using lightdm-gtk-greeter from community repository instead:

Sorry for not being able to help you. =/
