I am not able to install this package. request failed: Get "": net/http: TLS handshake timeout

I am able to download all other packages from pacman and aur except for this package

@fmiguel, I was having the same problem.

Since yesterday I was trying to install, so I could get optimus running on top of gnome and had the same problem.

I started looking into it and since the error is in meson's build() process and the package is the same that was working on 28 of November, I was able to solve this right now and properly install the current package with a change of version in 'meson' package.

I don't know if I'm allowed to put links here, but in the archlinux archive (packages -> m -> meson), download another 'meson' version dated before 28th of November (when @Scotty_Trees said he got it working) - I installed '0.60.3-1-any' (with sudo pacman -U meson_downloaded_file inside file directory) and the build process for gdm will work just fine.

Just be aware of the moment gdm-prime will talk about conflicts and don't forget to remove gdm and libgdm in the confirmations that happen during the installation process.

Hope it helps you until the package is updated to new meson version.

I'm getting the following build error:

gdm/libgdm/ ERROR: gnome.gdbus_codegen keyword argument "annotations" must be made up of 3 strings for ELEMENT, KEY, and VALUE

While waiting for the maintainer to update, it is possible to build v41 :

I've dropped pam-arch support as the patch does not work with v41 (I think it only usefull if you have a fingerprint reader).

I took a chance and updated to Gnome 41 with gdm-prime and libgdm-prime not being updated yet to properly support Gnome 41 and I am happy to report it still works on my end, haven't seen any issues on my Acer Aspire E5-576.

PolGZ commented on 2021-11-18 17:21

On asus-flow-x13 auto-attempts to login with the fingerprint, resulting in continuous errors. If one don't type his password real fast, will get banned from login for 10 minutes.

That behaviour was not present with default gdm package.

Just for info: I just updated to Gnome 41, and the 40.0-1 package (+libgdm-prime) still seems to work with it.

Scotty_Trees commented on 2021-09-23 15:23

Will this be updated to support Gnome 41 which was just released on Sept 22?
