The lightdm binary has been moved from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin in the community package.

Alucryd, thanks for that.

Disowning so you can pick up the package.

Might just want to bump your pkgrel to 2.

I picked up ownership of this package to update it to v 1.7.0.

I have disabled building liblightdm-qt5 as I am getting a make error, which I am unsure how to fix (even though qt5-base is installed, it is not being found when building liblightdm-qt5).

All the qt5 options are still in the PKGBUILD, just commented out. Just uncomment them and remove the --disable-liblightdm-qt5 option from the build line to re-enable qt5.

If anyone can advise of the appropriate fix for this, let me know.

Again, I only picked up this package to update it to v 1.7.0. If anyone else is interested in taking over maintainership, let me know and I will orphan the package.

Overview of changes in lightdm 1.7.0

* Use logind instead of ConsoleKit if it is available
* Use Q_SLOTS and Q_SIGNALS instead of slots and signals.
* Ignore stale X server locks
* Pass through system locale or set locale from AccountsService/.dmrc
* Fix bug where seat failure before D-Bus acquired would not stop daemon

Oks, I´ll do it like that, because I use xfce, and with the lightdm from the official repo I don´t need qt or anything special to make shutdown as a user.

mardomo: I'm not sure if this is 100% accurate, but this package depends on qt because it builds and installs a library providing functions like shutdown (which connects to dbus interfaces using either gdk or Qt), which Qt-based greeters use. You can edit the PKGBUILD to not install this, if you want.

Thanks for fixing the patch.

If this it's the development package, and needs Qt5, it doe it means that lightdm will need qt in the future?
