Description Telsa Gwynne 2000-08-01 17:20:00 UTC
Custom install including all the gnome stuff on a Vaio laptop.
There is a launcher on the gnome-panel to lock the screen.
For root, this does not work. Errors on the console say this is
an xscreensaver issue and to read the xscreensaver FAQ.
(yes, I have xscreensaver installed :))

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-01 18:25:29 UTC
Correct, this is the intended behavior for xscreensaver.
Assigning to gnome-core, in case they want to remove
the icon from root's panel.

Comment 2 David Mason 2000-08-01 18:37:24 UTC
jrb - lets remove it

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2000-08-04 14:55:59 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2000-08-07 15:16:03 UTC
jrb, I'll take this bug if you want, I've already been poking around in this
code a good bit.

Comment 5 David Balažic 2000-08-16 16:21:57 UTC
In case the icon will stay, it would be nice if a dialog popped
up whne clicked, saying that "doesn't work for root" or something
like that. Now it it just looks broken, when I click and nothing
