OK, thanks for the answer! ;)

logos: this is because this package is installing liblightdm-qt5-devel. You could install qt5, install this, then remove liblightdm-qt5-devel and qt5.

Why is qt5-base a dependencie? I use lightdm-gtk3-greeter and I don't want to install qt libraries. I thought that lightdm was independant from gtk/qt libraries and then yo could choose the greeter that best fits to you.

I found a fix. The shutdown/reboot buttons don't appear because when the greeter executes lightdm_get_can_restart/lightdm_get_can_shutdown, it gets false, though it should get true (I've checked with the dbus interface).
And this happens, because the patch that adds support for org.freedesktop.login1 (lightdm-1.5.1-systemd_login1_power.patch) has a bug. The line:
g_variant_get (result, "(b)", str_result);
should look like this I think:
g_variant_get (result, "(s)", &str_result);
With this change the function returns true now, and options for shutdown and reboot appear. Also, Gdk errors associated with this line disappear from logs.

I'm not sure if this is a proper fix. According to http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/logind the functions should return a string. "s" was causing an error, and "(s)" worked.

applebloom: I noticed that too, haven't had time to look into it yet though. I'll try what dgbaley27 posted and report back here asap.
Morfeo: I've moved lightdm's home to /var/lib/lightdm in the [community] package, you might want to do the same too^^ BTW, your maintainer line is wrong, it should be spelled Maintainer, with an i, please run namcap on your PKGBUILD to notice these kind of errors.

I had shutdown and reboot entries in the menu. Then yesterday, I made an update and got the lightdm from community. Since then, I only have hibernate and suspend. I tried installing this package, but it didn't fix the issue. I tried what dgbaley27 suggested, but it didn't help either.
What could I do to fix this, or at least, how can I debug it?

Morfeo: I made a mistake when I last updated lightdm-autologin, please find a working version here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43076209/lightdm-autologin.pam
Also, I've made enabling the autologin feature easier, while retaining some security. I didn't want any user with an uid >= 1000 to be able to enable this, I preferred the solution mentioned on the wiki. Now, users just have to add themselves to the autologin group, and of course modify lightdm.conf. Please find an updated default config patch here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43076209/lightdm-default-config.patch
I've also updated the wiki accordingly, and lightdm in [community] already contains these changes.

I know, but I'd have created this package when 1.7 would be released anyway, so I figured I might as well create it now.
