I'm getting an error when building:

error: failed to lookup: sxlock-git: fatal: remote error:

The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.

Please see for more information.

I did not. Now I have, and the error is solved.

Ah, I see that xorg-fonts-misc is an optional dependency, so I guess this makes sense. Thank you!

@lmat: do you have xorg-fonts-misc installed?

lmat commented on 2019-11-18 22:01 (UTC)

sxlqck; says "sxlock: error: could not find font. Try using a full description." I don't have many fonts installed, so I'm guessing it wants one I don't have.

I see this was discussed at the end of 2018. Maybe the font requirement has changed?

That was fast! Thanks a lot!

lahwaacz commented on 2018-11-18 08:26 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks.

Hi! Thanks for having packaged sxlock :) Shouldn't xorg-font-misc come as optdepends, as sxlock's default font is absent from Arch without it? Thanks again!

Ah, thanks for answering! Indeed, it makes sense now...

Hi kyak, I don't think it is generally useful because there is no way to let the service know which user is currently logged in. See
