Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 868595
RFE: provide option to skip "window shade" on screen unlock
Last modified: 2015-05-29 09:56:57 EDT
Description of problem:
When I unlock the screen by moving the mouse, I am presented with a very pretty screen urging me to drag upwards. Only after doing that (or hitting esc) can I proceed to enter my password.
I understand the appeal visually and the benefit on a touch interface, but on a traditional desktop or laptop this is just introducing an extra hoop.
Please either redesign this feature for daily usability or provide an option in the "Brightness and Lock" settings screen to disable the swipe lock.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We are not using gnome-screensaver anymore, moving this to gnome-shell.
But it is really more a design question than a bug.

Sure. We can call it a "design issue". I don't think it's really a _question_.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
