yaourt -Syua

and have just spent 4 hours of my working hours on weekend figuring out I've hit this.

Switched to GTK greeter for now. I was using lightdm-webkit-archlinux-theme.

I tried a fresh install of the package and the default "webkit" theme.
Didn't work.

Can you fix this? :s
I switched temporary to lightdm-gtk-greeter and don't want to use the gtk2 version of webkit-greeter.

lightdm-webkit2-greeter could be an upgrade though. They are different projects so I am not sure how different they are and lightdm-webkit-theme-archlinux seems to depend on the Antergos webkit2 version.

I tested this again with the default 'webkit' theme with and without webkitgtk2 and it does work so I can only assume the problems are theme problems, webkitgtk2 is not used anymore.

So what has changed is that 1.0 seems to be GTK3 now and uses a newer javascriptcoregtk, 3.0 instead of 1.0 that is in webkitgtk2 and that could break themes I guess.

EDIT: I'll try building and running this on a more clean system in the weekend since I could have a library that is needed already installed on my system

I’ve also noticed that I cannot login anymore with the ycombinator theme (haven’t tried any other themes though). I thought webkit-greeter might have had an API change which requires the themes to be changed. Any pointers?

I made my own theme based on my personal needs. This failed, arch, simple and webkit.

Can I provide something to help you?

webkitgtk2 is NOT an upgrade, but a downgrade. Maybe it needs both installed though, I'll need to do some testing

Does this happen with all themes?
@mrdrogdrog are you also using lightdm-webkit-archlinux-theme?

I had a similar problem:

Upgrading to webkit2 helped.

Oops! Update of lightdm-webkit-greeter wiped out my modified /etc/lightdm/lightdm-webkit-greeter.conf :-(

Time to search for my backup HDD...
