Diswoning, feel free to pick and update this up.

Indeed, sorry about that, I shouldn't blind update packages.

Need to update the patch file lightdm-default-config.patch

Line 40:
[User Accounts]
Change to:
[User List]

and update package sums for this to build correctly.

Lightdm fails with the xorg-server-1.15.0 unless you rebuild.

Please bump package to 1.9.5-2 to force a rebuild against the new xorg.

padfoot: I just fixed those perms here and in [community], for some reason mine had the right perms. I was setting them in the install file, I must have forgotten to put them back in there while transferring the line in the PKGBUILD (which was an epic fail because I used chown lightdm:lightdm instead of chown 620:620, the latter works even if the user and group do not exist).

alucryd: it must have been cruft left over from previous installs in /var/cache/lightdm /var/lib/lightdm and /run/lightdm.

After uninstalling both lightdm and the greeter, ensuring the user and group were gone and deleting the above directories, upon re-installing, my ttys work as expected. I have X on tty1 and consoles on ttys 2-7. This is with 1.7.15

The only issue that needs attention is the permissions on /var/lib/lightdm
lightdm has it owned by root:root. It should be lightdm:lightdm as the gtk-greeter tries to write an .Xauthority file there as user lightdm. With root permissions on that directory, the greeter fails to start.

padfoot: Hmm, can you try reinstalling lightdm-devel from scratch? Boot into a tty (so the lightdm user is not used), uninstall lightdm, make sure that the lightdm user is gone and that /var/lib/lightdm is gone too, then reinstall lightdm-devel?
The changes in 1.7.14 were regarding Xauthority perms.
I see that 1.7.15 is out btw, I'll update the package.

Sorry for the delay. With the installing and uninstalling of various lightdm packages, the permissions on /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority got screwed preventing the greeter launching.

Anyway, tried lightdm from community with both lightdm-gtk2-greeter and lightdm-gtk2-greeter-devel, tty1 was X and tty2-7 were consoles.

Back to lightdm-devel and 1.7.14 displays the same issue. tty1-7 are all X.

With 1.7.12, I had minimum-vt=7 set so did not have any issues. I no longer have that package to confirm if the issue appeared with 1.7.12 or the latest 1.7.14

I built 1.7.14, all my ttys are working as expected.
