Tap to click using touchpad not working

The solution offered seems "unclean". I assume the person changes his input options by running "xinput" at the beginning of their session. That way they have to mirror the same behaviour twice. Once for their user X session and once for LightDM (the mentioned solution in the article). Using Xorg config files would be way cleaner and only require the option to be set in 1 place.

I don't know if this should be mentioned in the LightDM article or if the hacky solution should be removed?

Cursor size in lightdm-gtk-greeter

The cursor size for the gtk-greeter is set by org.gnome.desktop.interface.cursor-size in root's dconf and gtk-cursor-theme-size= in /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini. To be sure, set both (one or the other tends to be ignored).

Note: It is not possible to change any value in root's dconf in Archlinux since the removal of x11 support from dbus. You must install dbus-x11AUR and use gsettings or dconf-editor as root.

light-locker screen black

As noted by the accuracy flag added to the section 'Black screen on lid up with light-locker', the problem is most likely cuased by an upstream bug or is considered a 'missing feature', rather than a genuine bug. This problem is odd as light-locker, by defualt, is not built with upower support. This may imply that it is a problem with how light-locker runs alongside the firmware. I am currently replicating the bug to file a upstream bug report, as I did not have my system logs saved for it. Does anybody have any other information on this?

I can't seem to replicate the error...

Removed section due to irreproducability. I will undo this if I can reproduce it succsessfully.

Add Source .bashrc on login

I think it would be useful for others if they don't have .profile

ln -s ~/.bash_profile ~/.profile
