Indeed. Thanks for the reminder that things have changed now ☺

The dependency should be lightdm-webkit2-greeter instead of lightdm-webkit-greeter?

All fixed!! Thanks again. Really enjoy the theme and appreciate all the help and updates.

Hi Oscifer, thanks for bringing this issue up, two fold. Embarrassingly, I was still running on an old version of the greeter so I didn't notice this issue until recently where it was intermittent on my workstation.

After a bit of research, it looks like it's a race condition introduced by the greeter devs and I have patched a workaround that seems to be working on my machines.

Hope it does the same for you.

Hey Phillid, your latest change did fix the issue. Thanks again!

Since the last lightdm update I'm getting a new error when trying to login on initial boot up. From the debug -

/petrichor.js:149:19: CONSOLE ERROR ReferenceError: Can't find variable: lightdm
/petrichor.js:123:25: CONSOLE ERROR ReferenceError: Can't find variable: lightdm

Once logged in for the first time with the default theme I can log in and out no problem with yours. I only get this error for the first login on inital boot up.

Hi Oscifer, thanks for letting me know about that. This issue was reported a few months ago [1] and fixed then [2], but I had completely forgot to merge the change into master.

This is change has been merged now, please let me know if it fixes your issue.

I'm trying to get this working but having issues. I get an error box and running it from a terminal outputs file:///usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/petrichor/petrichor.js:153:17: CONSOLE ERROR TypeError: null is not an object (evaluating 'user.image.match')

Edit: Following the "Changing your avatar" section in the LightDM ArchWiki fixed this issue for me. It works now and looks great! Thanks for sharing!

Hi lesebas, this theme does not support right-clicking to change the background image. You must set it inside `lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf`.

Regarding your first statement, I'm not sure what you mean. Could you please post a screenshot? Thanks.

I did not manage to make it works with lightdm-webkit2-greeter. The icons and hour are mixed and I can't change the background with right click (even if the path is well set in lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf).

... Ok it's a bit tricky! Thanks for your theme, I really like it.
