@Elethiomel: changed depends to cinnamon-git (which depends on cinnamon-desktop-git)

checking for CINNAMON_SCREENSAVER... no
configure: error: Package requirements (x11 >= 1.0
gtk+-3.0 >= 2.99.3
dbus-glib-1 >= 0.30
cinnamon-desktop >= 1.0.0) were not met:

No package 'cinnamon-desktop' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables CINNAMON_SCREENSAVER_CFLAGS
and CINNAMON_SCREENSAVER_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

BTW, once the screensaver activates, I am getting a segmentation failure and this error message on the console:

(cinnamon-screensaver:2937): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.cinnamon.screensaver' is not installed

@freethinker: automake problem known, needs to be fixed in gnome-common upstream/packaging (see

Automake-1.9 should be a dependency as well. Meanwhile it can be installed from AUR - yaourt --noconfirm -S automake-1.9

Thanks, it installed now. I had to manually resolve two issues however:

1. The build checks for automake-1.9, 1.10, 1.11 and 1.12. It failed because I had only installed automake-1.13.

2. The package fails to install because it tries to overwrite /etc/xdg/autostart/cinnamon-screensaver.desktop, which is owned by package cinnamon 1.6.7-4.

@fax, should be fixed now

I am not getting very far with the installation:

$ yaourt -S cinnamon-screensaver-git
