Thanks for this theme. I just centered the fields to suit my preference.

Is it possible to clear the password field after an incorrect login attempt?

There isn't a release, so I can't make a release package. If the upstream developer tags a release, it would be no problem.

Hi Doug,

First thanks for creating and maintaining this package.
I have a favor to ask.

Would you mind to create a non-development package (non git) of this package in AUR?

For example sddm-archlinux-theme v0.1 instead of sddm-archlinux-theme-git.

It works because you probably already have git installed. Try building in a clean chroot and watch things fail.

And the install command in that PKGBUILD only installs one file. You can use the -D switch to automatically create the dir when installing one file, but it doesn't work when installing multiple files. The install command does not work on directory structures, either, so you can't just install a dir.

Here's a PKGBUILLD from git:

However, somehow that works even though the wiki says this:
Include the appropriate VCS tool in makedepends=() (cvs, subversion, git, ...).

I stand corrected. =\ If it works without it, then why does it need to be included in the first place? #firstworldproblems

Actually, I did it based on another package (I wasn't at home.). I'll check it maybe, I did the install format incorrectly. Let me see.

git most certainly does need to be in the makedep array. It's needed to build the package. Even the wiki says it needs to be included.

The current pkgver function pulls an actual version number. It's set up as is preferred according to the wiki, just not as the examples. Guidelines are just guidelines, this is better. It's specific to this package, not something generic for people who don't want to think.

Did you actually try your package function? It does nothing besides create a an empty directory (note that's a directory, there's no such thing as a folder in *nix).

I would change the PKGBUILD to this to better support Arch Linux guildlines:

pkgdesc="Archlinux Theme for SDDM"

pkgver() {
cd "$pkgname"
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

package() {
cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname/archlinux"

install -dm 644 "$pkgdir/usr/share/sddm/themes/archlinux/"

You don't need to have "git" in the makdepends array. It already checks that if you use a "git" source. Also, change the package version function from off the Wiki site to better match what is expected (and cleaner as well). Fixed the installation, since you can install the folder and all files at the same time as creating the folder. =)

That works, too. It could use some simplification.

bchretien commented on 2014-09-18 16:23

@Scimmia: or "sddm-git" doesn't work with mine. But well, since I'm not even using this package anymore, you can adopt it and update it.
