@switfgeek,

Huh? The greeters are defined by desktop files in /usr/share/xgreeters/*.desktop.

Nothing is implicitly backed up by placing it in /etc, it needs to be in the backup=() array of the PKGBUILD.

@Jristz,

The crowd-greeter is just kind of silly, but not really practical.

gtk-greeter is 'teh basick'
webkit-greeter need many tweaks, by default practically all are commented or point to nonexisten archives (in ./webkit-greeter.conf)
unity-greeter, need patch ar changed deps for pointing to Archlinux in place of for example ubuntu-wallpapers
crowd-greeter, I not try it
kde/qt-greeter need a TON of KDE deps

This info is for future users wanting a greeter

I also think that "Greeter session" should be set to a symlink provided by this package ;)
Eg. "/etc/lightdm/lightdm-greeter"

I guess that by placing it in /etc it wont be overwritten on upgrade.

Out of curiosity, what are most people using for the greeter? The gtk-greeter sucks.

I want something that shows up to around 6 users at a time and uses icons.

When is going to be lightdm in general packages? It's one of the most used display managers!

@dgbaley

Isn't that an option in NetworkManager (per connection) to have a wireless connection globally available (to all users)?

I forgot to mention that I actually disabled "Available to all users" in my wireless connections. At least LightDM still passes the (user login) password to gnome-keyring to unlock the default keyring (used by NetworkManager.)

Wouldn't you prefer your network passwords to be stored in /etc/NetworkManager so that all users can access them? NM should only store user-specific connections in the keyring.
