Also, for the greeter to work here, I had to install 'gdk-pixbuf' and 'gnome-settings-daemon' and had to adjust these variables on 'lightdm.conf':
#on [LightDM]
greeter-user=root
#on [SeatDefaults]
type=xlocal

You should add the optional dependencies like the "Keyboard on screen" and the indicators it supports:
optdepends=('onboard' 'indicator-sound-gtk2' 'indicator-power' 'numlockx')

Also, for the greeter to work here, I had to install 'gdk-pixbuf' and 'gnome-settings-daemon', had to link an wallpaper to '/usr/share/backgrounds/elementaryos-default' and had to adjust these variables on 'lightdm.conf':

#on [SeatDefaults]

IDK why, but here greeter was failing to start, to fix I had to install all the official dependencies ('granite-bzr' 'libindicator3' 'clutter-gtk' 'lightdm' 'numlockx' 'dconf' 'atk' 'cairo' 'cogl' 'gdk-pixbuf' 'libgl' 'glib' 'gtk3' 'gnome-settings-daemon') -- being 'gnome-settings-daemon' the one the greeter was missing, had to link an wallpaper to '/usr/share/backgrounds/elementaryos-default' and had to adjust these variables on 'lightdm.conf':
#on [LightDM]
greeter-user=root
#on [SeatDefaults]
type=xlocal

After lightdm moved to community, has anyone been able to get pantheon-greeter working?

I'm able to call the greeter directly when I'm in a session, but when lightdm does it, (when it starts or when I do lightdm --test-mode --debug), it quits.

This is what I get when I run --test-mode:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1".

I'm guessing I also get this when lightdm runs at start, but the log file barely says anything in that case.

Can you help me??
- This greeter ignores what I type in my keyboard (like my password).
- Thought mouse works for changing user, it doesn't works on the top-right icons.
- I don't know how to change apperence settings.
- What theme, icons, and font is used in elementary? The ones it's using here doesn't render very well...
Notes: I'm using XFCE w/ Sligshot and Plank; when running it iside a xfce session, outside lightdm, my keyboard and the menus works.

Change these two lines in PKGBUILD:

_rel=r184
md5sums=('1da005c9cf1e62afe983b761a6e59edd')

Downloading fails with 404.

It's r179+pkg19 now.

Sorry about the above post. Meant to say doesn't compile because libindicators fails.

libindicator3 fails on warnings
