Can't disable screen saver/lock screen
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:27:49 EDT
I run Fedora in a VM. After about 5 minutes, the screen saver kicks in. I have to swipe to clear it, which results in an SELinux violation. The SELinux violation sometimes crashes the windowing system, so things go downhill rather quickly, and a reboot is usually required.
I visited Settings → Display, but there is no setting to disable the screen saver. I visited Settings → Privacy and turned off the Lock Screen, but that did not disable the screen saver (it simply stopped prompting me for a password). And searching the Settings app for terms like "screen saver" results in 0 hits, so I'm pretty sure there are no other settings that govern the behavior.
I have *not* modified any SELinux rules. Everything is default as provided by the distro.
I have experienced this issue under both i686 and x86_64 Fedroa distros.
Please stop providing the screen saver; or give us a way to disable it. I'm tired of rebooting because of SELinux violations...
