Awesome, are they done using bzr? It has prevented me from contributing in the past

Can you post your /etc/pam.d/lightdm* files

Also, what failed? Creating the lightdm user or running lightdm after you created the user?

Lightdm won't launch:

[+0.47s] DEBUG: Started session 685 with service 'lightdm-greeter', username 'lightdm'
[+0.48s] DEBUG: Session 685 authentication complete with return value 10: User not known to the underlying authentication module
[+0.48s] DEBUG: Greeter failed authentication
[+0.48s] DEBUG: Greeter failed to start
[+0.48s] DEBUG: Stopping display

If I replace "lightdm" by my username in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, it works:


But in my opinion, it's not the good solution.

I tried to create lightdm user and group, but that failed...

Does lightdm depend on ConsoleKit? Since CK has been deprecated in Arch I've removed it, but now lightdm doesn't show the list of users in the gtk-greeter.

I also have these errors in the logs:
from /var/log/lightdm/x-0-greeter.log
** (process:347): WARNING **: Failed to open CK session: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files

Can you maybe confirm here before you make changes rather than just (mis)interpreting the comments? I'm not sure why you moved away from using system-local-login, but you still need the auth sections for gnome-keyring

auth requisite
auth required
auth required
-auth optional
account required
session required
session required
password required
-session optional
-session optional
-session optional auto_start

I can confirm that adding
-session optional auto_start
as dgbaley27 suggested fixes the problem where the keyring doesn't get unlocked at login.

'lightdm-kde: Qt lightdm greeter' in $optdepends is wrong: lightdm-qt is the qt greeter.

ok sorry, just since now my keyring doesn't get unlocked at login, I thought that was the case...

dgbaley27 commented on 2012-11-14 21:30

On top of that, I'm pretty sure you need

-session optional auto_start

for the gnome_keyring module to be useful.
