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

Updated package.

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...

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

jamincollins commented on 2015-10-29 22:32

@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().

My proposed change:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index cc7118d..b24ece7 100644
@@ -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.

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