It may be that a re-install did the trick. I've just sync'd to current and things seem to be in order.

Thank you for the report, I will test the package and try my best to fix it over the weekend.

Yep - I think lightdm update finally broke something. This is working on my system (just did a downgrade from lightdm 1.12.2-1 after things went haywire):

local/lightdm 1:1.12.1-1
local/lightdm-webkit-greeter 0.1.2-6
local/lightdm-webkit-theme-antergos 2.0.6-1

Thank you very much for the rapid reply @disastro.

Yes. lightdm-gtk3-greeter installed and works perfectly fine. Just webkit-greeter.

Sorry to hear that. Have you installed a theme? I myself use lightdm-webkit-theme-antergos and it sometimes, though rarely bugs out with just a blank screen. You can find others in AUR by searching.

This greeter hasn't been updated upstream so an update to lightdm could break it.

baboofei commented on 2015-01-04 03:21

Weird for me. I kept seeing a blank screen with a cursor. Obviously something is wrong here.

Any ideas? It worked just fine with gtk3-greeter.

No idea why this is flagged, use it personally, unflagging

If you wanna fix the login problem, check the folder /usr/share/xsessions/, mine has 2 files, one is xfce.desktop.
Now, on /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, change #user-session=default to user-session=xfce (remove # and change default to your existing xsession)

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain
More details here:

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default
bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file
using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
the -k (or --insecure) option.
