I have been using it some time ago. But I recall that some update broke it and because it was not necessary to have multiseat, I never got around to investigate it more.

It is not possible to use it with the newest GDM and probably keeping the old one (2.22, I guess) broke something. If you want an outdated how-to, I have someting here: And something is also on Jori's page:

And I have seen a huge multiseat on FOSDEM, but they were using pretty old versions of GDM and Xorg.

I've got response from author. So, please wait.
By the way are you using it?
Could you explain it on wiki or your blog?
I'm being blocked by multiseat settings.

dlin: would you be so kind, please, and send it to me as well? I can attach it to the PKGBUILD to have buildable package again. Thanks.

I've build a patch for gcc 4.7 and e-mail to author.
