Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 290611
cancelling fade out with mouse movement doesn't restore gamma settings
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
Moving the mouse shortly after fade-out, but before the screensaver itself has
started, results in a black screen that cannot be unlocked. Session must be killed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for fade-out.
2. Move mouse before screensaver starts, while screen is still black.
Session locks, no unlock dialog.
Unlock dialog, return to the session.
if you type
xgamma -gamma 1.0
("in the dark" so to speak)
does it come back to life?
Adding to F8Target
It do (with DISPLAY and XAUTHORITY environment variables set).
[Should probably clarify above that I went through a text-mode console.]
Can you try again with current gnome-screensaver packages ? Ray added a patch
that should fix this problem.
Oh, sorry, I just see that this bug is against F7.
The fix will be available in F8.
