PKGBUILD must have also

conflicts=('nody-greeter')

Please, add it.

@ItzAfroBoy, hi, it should be solved now~

About older build issues, thanks to @oUndercover to proposing a solution. I didn't have time these last 3 months to be involved in my own projects, sorry about that :D

For those of you who are like me and are not very experienced in this type of situations, all you have to do is edit the PKGBUILD and where it reads make build replace it with make -j1 build. If you are installing manually then it is easy, if you are using yay for example, then running yay -S web-greeter --editmenu will allow you to edit the PKGBUILD.

Got the same building failure as Tio commented. Resolved by disabling the parallel compilation in makepkg.conf (ref) .

The original Makefile isn't very well-formed for parallel compilation, we'd consider either forcedly disabling it in PKGBUILD or patching the Makefile.

Looks like a dependency is missing

Hi, got this error when trying to install 3.5.1-1:

Besides, if I re-run makepkg, another error occurs:

Oh, sure. It was trying to clone the submodule through ssh, it should be fixed now in 3.5.0-2, which clones it through https.
