@clickit: I put 'vala>=0.16.0' in the dependencies because I could not compile lightdm with earlier versions of vala. Since it worked for you, I'll change 'vala>=0.16.0' to 'vala' :)

I overtook the problem, making change below:
makedepends=('gnome-settings-daemon' 'pkg-config' 'bzr' 'vala>=0.16.0' 'autoconf')
makedepends=('gnome-settings-daemon' 'pkg-config' 'bzr' 'vala' 'autoconf')

I don't know if it's wrong or right but it worked !!!

@clickit: You'll need to install vala from the testing repo (pacman -U vala-*.pkg.tar.xz) :




The download link in the right sidebar. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to update this package because Ubuntu doesn't keep the previous versions of their packages :(

fail to install this package
here's the log while installing:

==> Building and installing package

error: target not found: vala>=0.16.0
==> Restart building lightdm-unity-greeter ? [y/N]

@murr4y: The settings are now handled using dconf, so you'll need to change the settings using "dconf-editor" running as the lightdm user. To do that use these commands:

xhost + # Allow running graphical X programs as another user
su # Change to root
sudo -u lightdm dconf-editor # Run "dconf-editor" as lightdm user
# Change the settings now. It's in /com/canonical/unity-greeter
exit # Exit from su to root
xhost - # Disable running graphical X programs as another user

Just installed lightdm with the unity greeter and there doesn't seem to exist a unity-greeter.conf.
Creating it manually doesn't influence the settings. What can I do?

@clickit: Awesome! I'll add it to the dependencies :)

I confirm that after installing latest glib2-ubuntu, this greeter is succesfully installed and is working great

@clickit: Okay, the error messages say that GSettingsSchema and GSettingsSchemaSource are missing. These are defined in the /usr/include/glib-2.0/gio/gsettingsschema.h file, which is present in newer versions of glib2.

You'll need to install glib2-ubuntu from Ubuntu 12.04 (haven't had a chance to upload to the AUR yet). I'll upload it later on today.
