screensaver - lock screen problem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:06 EDT
Description of Problem:
The screensaver (tried several, both normal and GL) seems to have a weird
problem. Whein logging in for the first time after starting the computer and
locking the screen, the screen flashes several times before a screensaver is
chosen. After locking the screen two times, everything seems to work fine.
This "works" when locking the screen using the kicker icon or the kmenu entry.
It does not happen when starting kcontrol and testing a screensaver.
The video card is Intel Corp. 82815 CGC (i815).
(I'm also experiencing random crashes of the KDE screensavers which completely
lock the screen - you have to reboot the computer to recover, even killing all X
processes doesn't work. However, I cannot cleanly reproduce this, it just
happens ... just thought this could be related)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. log into KDE
3. press the "lock screen" icon or choose "lock screen" from kmenu
5. repeat again - works fine now
Do you still see this in the current versions? I can't reproduce it, but couldn't
reproduce it in the first place either.
Works for me now too. Closing.
