Can not unlock the screen
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:47:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Can not unlock the screen after reattach the mouse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Detach mouse
2. After some time screen become locked
3. Attach mouse
Screen cursor moves, but I can not select password field and unlock screen. Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace non working. Ctrl+Alt+Fxx working - so I can login in console and reboot machine.
Select password field and type password for unlock.
Mouse - Wireless MicroSoft Sculpt Ergonomic.
It is seen as 2 devices - mouse + keyboard (it is used for intercept pressing of MS-key on mouse)
Keyboard - standard Mitsumi PS/2 keyboard.
May be problem in conflict of two keyboards (screenlocker try to use mouse "keyboard")?
Are you sure you are using xscreensaver in KDE desktop?
Would you attach the result of
$ rpm -qa | sort
$ pstree -l
when you have logged in into KDE desktop?

Sorry, my fault. It seems, that I am not use xscreensaver :(
Any idea, where I must report my problem?
Once switching to kf5-plasma, perhaps KDE people will triage this.
I have no problem with detaching/attaching mouse when screenlocker is disabled.
