Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136269
'lock screen' doesnt work if screensaver is set to 'none'
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:10:54 EST
Scenario: I disabled the screensaver whilst I was watching a dvd,
and afterwards forgot to enable it again. Sometime later, I was
baffled why 'lock screen' option from the gnome menu wasn't working
If screensaver is disabled, 'lock screen' should at least put up an
empty black screen IMO.
Me too. Took a few minutes realising that I had to enable my screensaver again.
The right fix is for the DVD-playing programs to report a playing movie as
"activity" to xscreensaver so that it doesn't blank while the movie is playing
and not paused. See FAQ: http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/faq.html#dvd
