Hello - thanks for the suggestion.

It looks like there isn't an upstream any more:

Hey g0tmi1k. I know, but the issue is Antergos is now no more, hence that. But this is what is used to theme lightdm, which is used in XFCE4, i3-gaps etc.

Alternatively, here's the Arch Linux package: https://archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/lightdm-webkit2-greeter/

By the looks of it, it seems to be maintained/updated there (correct me if I am wrong).

But regardless if it is being updated or not, it can still be added to Kali, can't it? After all, it is used to expose a JavaScript API to themes to allow the ricing of the greeter.
