I believe without gdm as a makedep, the login screen switching option is not compiled in. I see that extra/xscreensaver also keeps this as a makedep. Feel free to remove prior to building.

There is a bug in version 5.31 that prevents it from building. Could be due to a dep missing or an upstream bug. Emailed Jamie and waiting to hear back.

Not sure why you're posting to this AUR page since I don't host this package on repo-ck... likely you have a bad download. Just delete it and redownload.

Hello @graysky, should I update your signature? repo-ck works as usual...

This has been discussed many time over the months. Scroll down to see the discussion and see the official arch package.

If like my you don't want to install gdm and it's crapy dependencies of gnome, juste remove 'gdm' from the PKGBUILD. It works fine without.

It's needed for some more advanced features I believe like user switching support. It's just a makedep, so it doesn't affect the deps for running this pkg.

I sitll don't get the make dependency on gdm. I have *NO* login manager of any kind and I this package works just fine if I simply remove gdm from the PKGBUILD. Hardly a "dependency".

This package should not depend on gdm, it drags after it networkmanager and LOTS of other unneeded packages
