EDIT: Fix is to rebuild webkitgtk2... which took 6 hrs. LOL!

It fails to build:

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

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:

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:

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?

Getting the same error on the new package.

Edit the PKGBUILD and change the first sha256sum to 570076df10cdfaa8b567eb51c1601f32c127ca16342e52c667b699a687acf86f to install
