In order to build this, I had to install extra-cmake-modules.
Also, there is a conflict with lightdm because of this:
sddm-git: /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.DisplayManager.conf exists in filesystem
In sddm, this was solved as shown here

Now that sddm.conf is generated by default a line
should be added to PKGBUILD.

No, it doesn't.

Does not build, has to depend on 'qt5-declarative-git'

I have lightdm installed, and installing this package gives this error:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
sddm-git: /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.DisplayManager.conf exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

As the sddm package, it seems this should provide and conflict with display-manager

Thanks for the quick update ;)

No, you're no wrong. It definitely should not "replace" sddm or sddm-qt5. It did replace sddm-qt5-git, so that would be valid, but it's not included.

Nierro commented on 2015-01-20 15:38

I guess this package should not have the "replace=" line.
As there's a repo providing this package, that line means sddm-git from that repo will always try to replace my sddm package. This is annoying and useless. This package should only conflict and provide sddm.
Am i wrong?

It needs the --tags flag in git describe to get the (correct) latest release (0.11 right now).

Can you update:




This provides a way to check the version (for themes) since API or file organization is likely to change (as it did with 0.9.0).
