after latest update, I came over this problem with mdm, when mdmwebkit enabled, its falling back to safe mode, error is following, if someone have any idea, and could point me in the right directions.


I think the problem is that there have been update with webkitgtk2, pkgrel=12, reverting back to pkgrel=11 to see if there will fix the issue.

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2017-04-10 12:02 (UTC)

Thank you. I suggest that we wait for upstream's response before doing anything here.

jamincollins commented on 2017-04-09 20:32 (UTC)

mdm-display-manager as packaged automatically spawns ssh-agent if the binary is found on the system. This results in an incomplete ssh agent configuration (gvfs does not use the agent under, at least, XFCE: While there is a workaround, a "display manager" should not be automatically spawning the ssh-agent. This should be left to the user's desired session. Please comment (or remove) lines 216-222 of /etc/mdm/Xsession. This request has also been filed with upstream:

QuimaxW commented on 2016-09-22 04:04 (UTC)

The file in /usr/share/mdm/defaults.conf is readonly & according to the instructions shouldn't be modified. Simply adding the following lines to /etc/mdm/custom.conf worked on my system: [greeter] IncludeAll=true MinimalUID=1000

Sam-Burgos commented on 2016-09-01 17:40 (UTC)

For everyone who has problem with the users not showing on MDM, check the file /usr/share/mdm/defaults.conf and do the following: 1) Uncomment the line that says "IncludeAll=false" (it should be the line 417) 2) Change that line from "IncludeAll=false" to "IncludeAll=true" To prevent other users, beside the local ones, to appear on the system: 3) Uncomment the line that says "MinimalUID=100" (it should be on the line 400) 4) Change that line from "MinimalUID=100" to "MinimalUID=1000"

Does anybody know how to get the "switch user" button to show up on the lock screen login box?

nilesrogoff commented on 2016-05-25 21:00 (UTC)

Getting the same error on the new package. Edit the PKGBUILD and change the first sha256sum to 570076df10cdfaa8b567eb51c1601f32c127ca16342e52c667b699a687acf86f to install

reference2myself commented on 2016-02-26 15:57 (UTC)

Has anyone found a way to get the "switch user" button to show up on the cinnamon lock screen using mdm? it works with lightdm, but with this mdm package it is non-existent...

Gryffyn commented on 2015-10-30 09:05 (UTC)

Thank you @jamincollins, I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

jamincollins commented on 2015-10-29 22:32 (UTC)

@Gryffyn the placement of the command seems to be incorrect With your current PKGBUILD: ==> Starting build()... gnome-doc-prepare: neither '' nor '' exists Try 'gnome-doc-prepare --help' for more information. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... My proposed change: diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD index cc7118d..b24ece7 100644 --- a/PKGBUILD +++ b/PKGBUILD @@ -29,10 +29,10 @@ noextract=() prepare() { cd ${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver} aclocal --install +gnome-doc-prepare --force } build() { -gnome-doc-prepare --force cd ${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver} chmod +x ./ export AUTOMAKE=automake After the above the package builds fine.

Gryffyn commented on 2015-10-29 12:42 (UTC)

I've added the gnome-doc line to the PKGBUILD. Thank you all.

jskier commented on 2015-10-28 13:07 (UTC)

@samyules, put that line directly above the autogen line (line 38). So, after, line 38 will be the command with force flag, and line 39 becomes the autogen command.

samyules commented on 2015-10-27 23:58 (UTC)

@jamincollins I've tried your gnome-doc-prepare --force idea and I still can't complete the build process. Could you elaborate. Maybe a snippet of a few lines?

jamincollins commented on 2015-10-16 23:45 (UTC) (edited on 2015-10-16 23:52 (UTC) by jamincollins)

the current breakage can be corrected by adding: gnome-doc-prepare --force before the autogen command in the PKGBUILD build function.

commented on 2015-10-09 01:43 (UTC)

new update to gnome-doc-utils, that simply is a version bump make mdm unable to build: automake: error: cannot open < gnome-doc-utils.make: No such file or directory extra/gnome-doc-utils 0.20.10-2 [installed]

I got the html themes working by reinstalling libwebkit, i think it was just a local problem on my computer, thanks for updating

sir_lucjan commented on 2015-07-07 20:00 (UTC)

I don't use mdm so I disowned this package.

reference2myself commented on 2015-07-07 19:38 (UTC)

also the button to preview the theme didn't work for me either

sir_lucjan commented on 2015-07-07 19:25 (UTC)

Can anyone confirm that?

reference2myself commented on 2015-07-07 19:23 (UTC)

It installed fine. It worked with the default settings. After I changed the theme to Blimp City all I got was a black screen and a spinning cursor for infinity...

sir_lucjan commented on 2015-07-07 15:58 (UTC)

Can anyone test?

Can anyone confirm?

mmmm_cake commented on 2015-02-03 20:19 (UTC)

Whatever happened with the Gnome Keyring issue? The discussion at suggests that it's a problem with the way individual distros package it. Who could I contact about that?

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-12-13 16:13 (UTC)

Update to 1.8.3

mmmm_cake commented on 2014-12-13 15:53 (UTC)

I'm using MDM 1.8.1 and I have no problem switching to another TTY via the typical Ctrl+Alt+F_ keyboard shortcut. Should I?

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-12-13 15:32 (UTC)

I didn't do it ;) Look at files.

Vistaus commented on 2014-12-13 15:24 (UTC)

I don't care if failing to load is an upstream bug or not, all I care about is that you should not disable all tty's. At least enable 1 tty so one can fix it easily. It took me over an hour and many frustrations to fix this which wouldn't have been necessary if a tty was enabled.

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-12-13 15:09 (UTC)

Sorry, mate. PKGBUILD and files are correct. Please report this bug upstream.

Vistaus commented on 2014-12-13 14:01 (UTC)

To the guy who disabled the tty's: thanks a bunch, smartass. MDM 1.8.1 doesn't load and I can't remove it through a tty 'cause it's disabled so I'm left with an unusable system. Great job!!!

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-11-11 14:12 (UTC)

mdm-display-manager is only in AUR.

Same here with Cinnamon. Still grey screen.

SolarEklipze commented on 2014-04-27 22:37 (UTC)

Still going to grey screen w/ xfce4 in latest update, happened at same time as reported for Cinnamon users. Switching to another display manager atm.

marcelo.origoni commented on 2014-04-27 17:36 (UTC)

I'm using Cinnamon 2.2.3 and MDM 1.6.0 still fails to log me in. I switched to sddm, but I would like to get back to mdm. The main problem to track this issue, is it fails silently, and there is no log of something going wrong, it just doesn't start cinnamon

clfarron4 commented on 2014-04-26 22:43 (UTC)

Just upgraded to MDM 1.6.0-1 and it is still starting Cinnamon just fine (I had no problems with earlier versions with Cinnamon wither).

mmmm_cake commented on 2014-04-25 02:18 (UTC)

The Manjaro package didn't seem to work, though I might not have installed it correctly. I can confirm that this is a Cinnamon 2.2 problem, as it only started happening after I upgraded. I wonder if this is an issue that can only be fixed on the Cinnamon end, or if MDM somehow has to interact with it differently.

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-04-24 15:18 (UTC)

I think that the problem is only with cinnamon 2.2/gnome 3.12. Can anyone confirm that? I use KDE & SDDM ;)

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-04-24 15:06 (UTC)

I don't have any idea. Could you try this: But this is the same source...

mmmm_cake commented on 2014-04-24 14:57 (UTC)

I'm not noticing any change after upgrading to 1.6. I tried using mdm.service and using mdm-plymouth.service with Plymouth and neither one successfully logged me in.

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-04-24 09:36 (UTC)

Bump to 1.6.0-1 Could you try it?

SolarEklipze commented on 2014-04-24 00:55 (UTC)

Hey, we're still seeing the issue that acidicX posted. Could you at least give us a status on the bug? I'm having to use startx on each login, it's getting pretty annoying.

sir_lucjan commented on 2014-04-17 22:14 (UTC)

Bump to 1.5.1-4

madscience commented on 2014-04-17 11:06 (UTC)

I'm confirming what acidicX is seeing as well.

acidicX commented on 2014-04-15 18:11 (UTC)

I installed the cinnamon (2.2) and gnome (mostly dependencies, 3.12) update today and mdm stopped working. After entering the password, it just stops the login and shows a grey screen. I can't find any error in journalctl. See also

There is a bug in mdm because of a missing config file ("/usr/share/mdm/distro.conf"). journalctl entries look like this: "mdm-binary[268]: GLib-CRITICAL: g_key_file_get_value: assertion 'key_file != NULL' failed" Creating a blank file solves this problem. Could you please add that? See github:

Add backup=('etc/mdm/custom.conf') to preserve user changes during upgrade

cllu commented on 2014-03-16 15:07 (UTC)

To successfully build this package, you also need autoconf, pkg-config, automake and libtool.

strider2 commented on 2014-01-19 10:35 (UTC)

Apart from the comment by wassup (which is corrected), the file /usr/share/applications/mdmsetup.desktop still points to /usr/bin/mdmsetup

wassup commented on 2013-12-16 02:27 (UTC)

The policy file org.cinnamon.pkexec.mdmsetup.policy should be edited or, otherwise, mdmsetup does not work. The following line: annotate key="org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.path">/usr/sbin/mdmsetup</annotate> should be changed to: annotate key="org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.path">/usr/bin/mdmsetup</annotate>

md5sums not matched

darkshines commented on 2013-12-01 12:37 (UTC)

kenny3794: I had the exact same problem and managed to solve it. You have to add the following lines to /etc/mdm/custom.conf under the section [greeter]: Browser=true MinimalUID=1000 IncludeAll=true The users' ids usually start at 1000 so something like git or postregsql users do not get included in the list. After that, restart mdm with systemctl restart mdm and the user list should show up. But beware! The cusomt.conf is overwritten on each update so you should save a copy in your home directory or something.

kenny3794 commented on 2013-12-01 05:16 (UTC)

When I add the MDM Display Manager, I do not receive a user list, regardless of what theme I use, even those shown to provide user lists on linux-mint. I read that there are systemd interface issues outstanding with MDM, but I couldn't confirm if that was the cause of this problem. Is this a specific problem with my PC? What should I look into? Or is this a known bug?

City-busz commented on 2013-11-25 18:42 (UTC)

Please use this pam file instead of current one, which solves the authentication problem on second login, and reuses pambase files: Note that the second login is partially broken anyway (e.g. network-manager-applet failed to run), because MDM lacks of proper systemd support.

City-busz commented on 2013-11-25 18:23 (UTC)

mintdm is merged into mdm-display-manager.

commented on 2013-11-18 04:34 (UTC)

@City-busz well, aparently I was wrong all the entire time.... so ok process and all, sorry

City-busz commented on 2013-11-18 01:03 (UTC)

@Jristz: The upstream maintainer, Clem said: 'MDM means MDM Display Manager, not "Mint" Display Manager.' If you don't like that, then contact with upstream.

commented on 2013-11-18 00:44 (UTC)

the dm in the name Stand for Display-manager, so the rename going to sound like: mint display manager-display-manager, and that is redundant as hay. Why not simpley rename to mint-display-manager? as THAT is what mean mdm from the begining

City-busz commented on 2013-11-17 22:52 (UTC)

No, the proper name of the package would be 'mdm', but it's already reserved by another project, so it should be suffixed with '-display-manager'. See Clem's comment about that: So I'll merge this package into 'mdm-display-manager'.

twa022 commented on 2013-11-17 21:15 (UTC)

it's fine with me if the packages are merged. merge to my package's name (the DM is display manager) and have sir_lucjan maintain?

City-busz commented on 2013-11-17 20:33 (UTC)

This package should be merged into mdm-display-manager package: @twa022: do you want to maintain that package in the future, or fine for you if it's maintained by sir_lucjan?

My /etc/mdm/custom.conf is overwritten on every update. Is there some way to prevent this?

City-busz commented on 2013-11-12 11:15 (UTC)

mate-display-manager renamed to mdm-display-manager for consistency with upstream name. @sir_lucjan: please adopt this package back if you want.

City-busz commented on 2013-10-30 15:47 (UTC)

This package should be renamed to mdm-display-manager. Please fix the description (MDM Display Manager), upload a new package, and I'll merge comments and votes.

zhengnairen commented on 2013-10-11 03:47 (UTC)

in PKGBUILD, "--sbindir=/usr/bin" should be "--sbindir=/usr/bin", otherwise mdmsetup cannot be launched from menu. Because mdmsetup is called with "pkexec mdmsetup" in "/usr/share/applications/mdmsetup.desktop", and pkexec use rules defined in "/usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.cinnamon.pkexec.mdmsetup.policy" as: <annotate key="org.freedesktop.policykit.exec.path">/usr/sbin/mdmsetup</annotate> Of course you can modify the policy as a workaround, but since mdmsetup do require root priviledge. We'd better put it in "sbin".

Louis commented on 2013-10-01 02:07 (UTC)

Why does the source of mdm point to a delected archive directory? The newest version can be found here: Also I suggust that this package will be renamed to mdm-display-mananger since this project is now overtaken by Mint devs and is not related to MATE anymore.

nous commented on 2013-09-20 05:24 (UTC)

The shebang of /usr/bin/mdm-theme-emulator must be changed from #!/usr/bin/env python to #!/usr/bin/env python2 Otherwise it won't start complaining about missing module 'gi': % mdm-theme-emulator Traceback (most recent call last): File "/bin/mdm-theme-emulator", line 3, in <module> import gi ImportError: No module named 'gi'

That's a completely different component of MATE. It is the replacement for Metacity whereas this is the replacement for GDM. It looks like this project doesn't exist anymore... Alex Brinister

Compiles fine with automake 1.11 from AUR.

valmar commented on 2013-03-02 12:00 (UTC)

The problem is not only in your system. I also cannot compile, and since I was doing a new installation, I am left without mintdm at all. Is there a known workaround for this, as far as anyone knows, please?

commented on 2013-03-02 00:14 (UTC)

ActuallyThis package have a bug about building in automake 1.13 preventing build if you want update this, anyways I going to upload the package. and hope that the problem are only in my system I use mintdm for pkgname because a silly user already use mdm for another package, but all the references are belong to mdm
