It conflicts with slim because the slim package comes with slimlock. This package is for people who just want the screenlocking program, and not the login manager.

I don't understand. Why does this conflict with slim? How will I be to use slim if this conficts with it.

It's just me or "tty_lock 1" functionality is broken?

Check what owns /usr/include/ft2build.h, that's the file causing the problems, and it's not provided by any official Arch package.

Anyone else having trouble finding freetype headers?

Can we currently execute 'slimlock' to lock the screen, or there exist another command ?

In case any of you wants to upgrade to slim with slimlock, read on:

If you use the package extra/slim from pacman, you simply have do:
1) Backup your /etc/slimlock.conf
2) Remove your aur/slimlock installation
3) Update extra/slim to >= 1.3.6
4) Restore your /etc/slimlock.conf

Slim will read the slimlock.conf now, same behaviour as before. Simple as that.

Slim conflicts with Slimlock now because it got merged into Slim.

Out-of-date: it now conflicts with one of its own dependencies...

This seems to be included in the official slim package now.
