Description Michael S. Tsirkin 2022-02-17 06:31:46 UTC
Description of problem: On the dialog windows for unlock the screensaver, "Switch user" button is missing. This occurs when Xfce4-screensaver is launched by systemd (auto-launch with session start) If I kill xfce4-screensaver, then re-launch it, lock screen -> "Switch user" button is present Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xfce4-screensaver-4.16.0-3.fc35.x86_64 How reproducible: lock screen, then unlock Steps to Reproduce: 1. make sure switch user is enabled in screensaver options (on by default) 2. lock screen 3. press any key to get prompted for password Actual results: no switch user button Expected results: should have switch user button Additional info: issue is described here https://gitlab.xfce.org/apps/xfce4-screensaver/-/issues/39 root cause analysis from above link: ==================================== In Fedora 34 (and possibly 33) the xfce4-screensaver package sets both autostart and dbus service for some reason: $ rpm -ql xfce4-screensaver | egrep 'dbus|autostart' /etc/xdg/autostart/xfce4-screensaver.desktop /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service So a work-around for this problem would be to disable /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service file: sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service.orig # And to prevent future upgrade or reinstall of xfce4-screensaver package from restoring the file sudo tee /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service < /dev/null ================================ I verified that the above work around works. Suggest Fedora drops /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service from the rpm.

This message is a reminder that Fedora Linux 35 is nearing its end of life. Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora Linux 35 on 2022-12-13. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a 'version' of '35'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, change the 'version' to a later Fedora Linux version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora Linux 35 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora Linux, you are encouraged to change the 'version' to a later version prior to this bug being closed.

As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora Linux please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Note that the version field may be hidden. Click the "Show advanced fields" button if you do not see the version field. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against an active release. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

this is still with us in xfce4-screensaver-4.16.0-4.fc36.x86_64 I don't know why I bother reopening it's clear no one even looked at this since the text clearly says it reproduces on 36.
Comment 5 Michael S. Tsirkin 2022-12-13 19:01:52 UTC
Mukundan Ragavan could you please drop /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.xfce.ScreenSaver.service from the rpm?

I have been busy with other things and have not been able to spend as much as I would like. I did look at this and the upstream issue but could not get to it. I understand the frustration. I will fix this.
