General :: Disable The Screensaver And Lock Screen In 11.04?

Sep 7, 2011

It's very disturbing when making a Kiosk application, every time the lock screen and screensaver shows up, also many popup + battery or updates shows up. Where and how can I completely disable the lock screen, screen saver and alerts via a configuration file or from the terminal? I have the tried following but nothing works: failed

vim /etc/default/acpi-support
;LOCK_SCREEN=true
failed
$ gconftool-2 --type boolean -s /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/suspend false
$ gconftool-2 --type boolean -s /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/blank_screen false
$ gconftool-2 --type boolean -s /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/hibernate false

General :: Is It Safe To Lock The Screen With The Gnome-screensaver?

Mar 8, 2011

USB driver bug exposed as "Linux plug&pwn" or this link.Two choices [GNOME, Fedora 14]:

1 - use the gnome-screensaver

2 - use the "switch user" function [gnome menu -> log out -> switch user]

So the question is: which one is the safer method to lock the screen, if a user leaves the pc? Is it true, that using the [2] method is safer?Why do i think this? - The gnome-screensaver is just a "process", it could be killed. But if you use the log out/switch user function, it's "something else". Using the "switch user" function, could there be a problem like with the gnome-screensaver? Could someone "kill a process" and presto...the lock is removed?Could the GDM [??] "login windows process" [e.g.: a picture of it] get killed and the "lock" gets owned?

p.s.: if the [2] method is safer, then how can i put an icon on the GNOME panel, to launch the "switch user" action by 1 click?

Ubuntu :: Lock Screen Without Screensaver Running?

May 7, 2010

Is there an easy way to lock my computer screen without a screensaver running? What I'm trying to do is basically fire up a web browser or terminal window that I want to watch/monitor but lock my screen so that it can't be changed unless you know the password to log in as that user.

Ubuntu :: Lock Screen After Sleep/Hibernate But NOT Screensaver?

Jul 29, 2010

running 10.04 Netbook edition. I would like my screen to lock after the netbook goes to sleep but NOT after it enters the screensaver. is this possible? i use my laptop to read in the university a lot and to save power tell it to go into black screensaver after a minute of inactivity. if i enable the lock option i have to enter the password each and every time after the black screensaver activates. but if i deactivate this option and then put the netbook into sleep/hibernate mode it doesn't ask for a password (which i would like) is there any way configure separate passwords for these instances or are they firmly linked?

Ubuntu :: Screensaver + Lock-screen Works But Idle Time Not Detected?

Dec 6, 2010

I am running 10.04 (i686) inside kvm-qemu client. The host is a headless 10.04 (x64).The issue is that the screensaver does not activate after a certain period of idle time (1 min). I can successfully activate the screensaver by running gnome-screensaver-command -a. It appears, then, that idle time is not being registered correctly. There are some very sporadic logs in daemon.log:

Code:

./daemon.log.1:Dec 1 11:01:24 myserver gnome-session[2166]: WARNING: GSIdleMonitor: IDLETIME counter not found
./daemon.log.1:Dec 2 12:35:53 myserver gnome-session[19953]: WARNING: GSIdleMonitor:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Screensaver When Viewing Full Screen?

Feb 28, 2010

I found a few threads dealing with this subject about a year ago but none seem to have come up with a simple answer. I use vlc and one writer indicated there was an option in vlc to disable the screensaver when in full screen mode. However, I've checked all over vlc and can't find this option.I'm not interested in creating a switch using Terminal to do this manually. I just want to know if disabling the screensaver can be automatic when in full screen mode - like in Windows

Ubuntu :: Not Able To Disable Screen Lock After Suspend / Enable This?

Nov 16, 2010

I recently upgraded from Lucid to Maverick I can't seem to disable screen lock after resume from suspend. It's a minor annoyance, but still a considerable annoyance to have to enter my password every time the computer wakes up.

I've thusfar

1 - changed screensaver preferences to not lock

2 - set the gnome_keyring_hibernate, gnome_keyring_suspend, hibernate, and suspend, values all to false in gconf-editor

3 - commented out the line LOCK_SCREEN=true in /etc/default/acpi-support

BUT am still being prompted for a password every time the computer wakes up from suspend. I'm stumped, what could I be forgetting?

General :: How To Disable People From Changing Screensaver Time

Oct 25, 2010

Running RHEL5 and because of the environment that we are in we have to disable the users being able to change the screen saver. I have tried using the gconf-editor to see if I can disable it but don't know if that is the correct way of doing it. I also looked in /etc/xdg/menus and really don't want to miss with that.

I've just returned to KDE after a long absence, and am wondering if there is a panel, system tray, or similar applet to disable/enable the screensaver. I know I can go into system settings, but what I'm after is something that's one click. It's for when I'm watching stuff like iplayer.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Authenticate After Screensaver Lock Out

Oct 1, 2010

I've just installed 11.1 and so far things seem to work OK. When I left the machine the screen saver kicked in and wouldn't let meback on with my password I chose during installation (and the only password I chose!) Re-booting the machine sorted the problem...until next time! I have now disabled the lock out for the screen saver so things ought to work now, but why did it do this? New with openSuse!

Ubuntu :: VMware Player Stops Screensaver/lock Engaging?

May 9, 2011

I don't know if anyone else sees this, but I get some odd behaviour when using VMware Player sometimes (Ubuntu 10.10, VMware Player 3.1.2 build-301548, dual monitors).My screen locks after 5 minutes of inactivity. I run a Windows XP VM under VMware player occasionally for certain things and that has a screen-lock time of 15 minutes or so. When running the Windows VM in full-screen on one of my two monitors (not tried it on a lower res), if I place the mouse cursor on the XP VM screen and leave it for > 5 minutes, the screen does not appear to lock. I can come back to the machine and still interact with the Windows XP machine and do what I like. If I move the mouse cursor outside the bounds of the XP VM screen, then the whole screen goes black and presents me with the password prompt to unlock the machine

General :: Wake From Screensaver Directly To The Login Screen In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2010

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 with a user account for my wife, and one for myself. "Wake-from-screensaver" should result in "choose user" without having to enter any password. I know how to do that in Windows, but I'm not good with Linux (yet). get past the login screen without passwords (after booting, and after choosing "switch user"), but once the screensaver kicks in and I wake it up again, the system does not present the "choose user" screen. Instead, it either turns off the screensaver and presents the desktop of the most recent user, or (if the screensaver is set to lock the screen) prompt for the user's password (which can be handily surpassed by clicking the "switch user" button and choosing the same user again). So, the login ("choose user") screen has been dealt with. How do I make the (any) screensaver return to the login screen at wake, rather than to the current user's desktop? Windows can do this, I'm sure Linux can too - but how?

Fedora :: Script To Disable Screensaver Only While Watching Movies

May 30, 2011

i would like to know if there are any good ways to disable and then reenable (the latter is key!) the screensaver so that it doesn't start when i'm watching movies with xine or when i'm watching flash things online like through hulu, videos, or so on. it's relatively simple to have a script run that will turn off the screensaver before starting a certain executable. but what about turning it back on again when the executable closes? and is there any way to detect that flash is running inside a browser window and then disable that temporarily?

General :: Automatically Set Screensaver Activation Back At 30 Minutes Each Time The Normal Screen Is Reactivated?

Mar 16, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 and set the screensaver (in System>Preferences on the Gnome GUI) to activate after the computer is idle for 30 minutes. After the screensaver is activated, and a press a key or the mouse, the screen is back to normal -- no problem.After the screensaver has been activated once, however, it comes back on very quickly -- usually in 2 or 3 minutes if the computer is idle. The only way I have found to correct this (and set activation back at 30 minutes again) is to log out and back in again.How can I correct this, and automatically set screensaver activation back at 30 minutes each time the normal screen is reactivated?
