Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 641343
gnome-screensaver locks the screen, doesn't unlock
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:26:09 EST
Description of problem:
When gnome-screensaver kicks in (set to lock the screen), any keyboard input (e.g. password to unlock) just makes the screen flicker. There is no way to unlock the screen, I had to go to alt-F2, log in there and kill gnome-screensaver to get back into X. Nothing stands out in /var/log/messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure to run and lock the screen
2. Wait for the screensaver to kick in
Any keyboard or mouse input makes the screen flicker, no way to unlock the screen
Be able to unlock the screen
Happened here (Toshiba Satellite Pro U400) and on my netbook (Samsung N210)
gnome-screensaver-2.30.2-5.fc15.x86_64 fixes this.
