Description Aleksey Nogin 2000-06-11 00:32:04 EDT
All other KDE screensavers make sure that kikbd is switched back to
"default" keyboard before locking the screen. Xscreensaver.kss does not do
that. As a result if the kikbd was switched into some other keyboard before
xscreensaver kiked in, there is no way to type in the password and to
unlock the screen (other than logging in using some other means and killing

I'm not sure I'm catching this; where do the kde
screensavers switch the keyboard mode/mapping?
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2000-06-11 15:51:43 EDT
I am not sure who does it and how. But what I know is that when I have my
screensaver set to, for example, xrock.xss and I press the lock button on the
panel, kikbd switches to default keyboard just before the screenbecomes locked.
This does not happen with xcreensaver.kss.

At this point, this is probably not something we're going to look into inhouse.
