gnome-desktop lock screen not working
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:23:35 EST
Description of problem:
When clicking "Lock Screen" or using the shortcut of "Ctl-Alt-L" the user is immediately logged out instead of locking the screen as expected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11.92 (Fedora 12 Alpha)
Log into gnome as regular non-privileged user. Lock the screen.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into gnome desktop as non-privileged user.
2.Lock screen either through shortcut (mentioned above) or through system menu
User is logged out
The user's session is locked and screen saver activated or returned to login screen showing that the user is still active.
Works fine here. Is this reproducible ? Is gnome-screensaver running in your session ?
I do have gnome-screensaver running. this problem still exists. Please note that I have tried this when upgrading from fedora11 stable to fedora 12 alpha and doing a straight fedora 12 alpha install. Not sure where any additional debugging information is captured to provide you with more details. I have reproduced this on 3 machines now. 2 upgraded from f11 and 1 new install. I have also tried to use the system->lock screen action item to no avail.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Do you still see this issue? Now it (ctrl-alt-L locks screen) works
well on my several F12.
Any news? If not, can we close this bug?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
