Description jigar 2016-05-05 13:59:03 UTC
Description of problem: On RHEL 7.2 Workstations using KDE, with 2 monitors connected, when using the Screen Locker "Simple locker" or "Screen saver" with the "Require password after" box checked, both monitors display a Password dialog to break screen lock, and both dialogs submit authentication requests.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kde-workspace-4.10.5-21.el7.x86_64

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to System Settings -> Display & Monitor -> Screen Locker
2. Set "Require password After" to a non-null value
3. Wait till screen gets locked
4. Both the monitors require authentication

Actual results: Multiple Authentications are required to all the screens and "authentication failed" errors are recorded in /var/log/messages

Expected results: Single Authentication should unlock all the screens

Additional info: The issue is also reproducible upstream.

Do you really have kde-workspace-4.10.5-21.el7.x86_64? I thought in RHEL 7.2 we have KDE 4.11. I tested this now with RHEL 7.3 and kde-workspace-4.11.19-x and this was working for me pretty well.

Hello Jan,

I am checking with the customer about the same.

Hello Jan,

We have this issue in RHEL7.3 as well. I have asked more information to get confirmation about the same.
