Works really well, sorry just read this today and re-test it.
Thank you.

@marcin82, you are correct, I forgot to update lxdm.install to remove the old lxdm user and group.

@lembang, sorry for that, now it's working again, please reinstall the package.

I know that is incompatible with Arch Linux packaging standards and many more distributions, but in this case user / group lxdm should be removed from system (manually or in lxdm.install file) and after it package should be reinstalled. Otherwise user lxdm still exists and unsuccessfully tries to get X authentication.

with the new packageI I get the same error with @marcin82.
Well this is on my other laptop (x200ma Ivy Bridge)
So far working great with the one comes with x patches.

I also thanks! Stay blue and rolling! ;-D

@marcin82, because of your reports, I made a better investigation, and the problem was the creation of user and group lxdm that is not necessary anymore.

After remove it from lxdm.install and made a new package, everything is working normally again.

lxdm.c.patch isn't necessary anymore.

Thanks a lot!

@marcin82, this was exactly the error that I got too, and the cause that made me work on the patch.

@lembang, happy to make things working again! :D

Package with latest patch works as formerly. Without patch the only error visible in /var/log/lxdm.log is: .
LXDM without xauthority works "good" - arg=/usr/bin/X -ac [...]

The developers added some codes for XAUTHORITY that bug lxdm-git on Archlinux.
For now, I've made a patch to remove those codes and the lxdm works fine now.
I'll report that to lxde developers.
Please reinstall the package and test.
