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!

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

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.

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 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 :: 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

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:

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Get LDAP To Authenticate In 11.2

Nov 19, 2009

I had 11.1 for some time, was working fine. decided to upgrade... long story short - did a fresh install with livecd of the 11.2. I use ldap server for authentication, its on the lan. configuration during install goes through fine. fetch dn, etc... then after the bootup - authentication error for any user except root. At the same time automounter works fine, ldap requests are going through for hosts (my local hostnames are also on this ldap server), I can edit users through YAST when logged on this box, but alas! even for "su - user" I get "incorrect password", whereas if I am root, then "su - user" gets me logged in as user. password does not go through!

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

OpenSUSE Install :: 11 Account Lock Out After 'X' Attempts

Jun 23, 2010

OK, I'm not really a newbie, but I definitely no expert either.I've been surfing the web trying to find a good tutorial on locking out users after three failed logon attempts.At present I've reset everything in the /etc/pam.d directory back to the default state.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Allocate And Lock Memory?

Jan 20, 2010

On my windows console, i have installed sun virtualbox. I only have 768MB ram and so i downloaded a trial version of eboostr. I thought it would work, but when i tried an install of 11.2, also, i tried a debian install, it did the same thing, it froze up in the middle of the install with the error Code: unable to allocate and lock memory. I guess that eboostr doesn't work, but is there a way to use a flash drive as ram in virtual box?

OpenSUSE Install :: Seamless Mount Of Encrypted Disks And New Session Creation After Each Screen Lock?

Sep 8, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 on HP elitebook 2560p few days ago (using KDE live CD). In general system is working fine, but steel I cannot resolve couple of really annoying issues: 1. I've created encrypted partitions for swap and home during OS installation. As result the system keep asking for passwords for each of encrypted partitions before show login screen. That leads to situation when I have to type 3 passwords during each boot/reboot. I was using the same configuration (swap and home were encrypted) on Ubuntu 11.04 and there both encrypted partitions were mount automatically with no password typing after login to the system. Could you please tell how I can configure the same behavior on openSUSE 11.4 ?

2. I've enabled auto screen lock after 5 mins being inactive. As result when I going back to laptop and to unlock the screen the system shows login screen (default login screen with user selection). But when user and password filled in I click login it creates entire new KDE session. Therefore all staff that was open before screen lock is gone. However old session is still in the system (it appears in output from 'w' command).

OpenSUSE :: Can't Control Screensaver Action ?

Oct 4, 2010

Suse 11.2 and kde, I'm trying to set up a screensaver. All the facilities seem to be there when I go System>Desktop and set the required details, but then I find the screensaver is non-operative, the screen just going blank after the preset time delay.

The set-up system does do the demo of the screensaver OK, so the software for it must be there and at least partly accessible. But it doesn't seem to get through to the system.

OpenSUSE :: Forcing Screensaver To Unlock Using Blueproximity

Dec 11, 2009

Back when I used openSUSE 10.3 with KDE 3.5.x I used the KDE-specific version of blueproximity found here: K-Blueproximity KDE-Apps.org. The thing that made it great was that it integrated kscreensaver.

It hasn't been updated in a couple years and isn't compatible with 4.3.x so I'm using the non-KDE-ified standard blueproximity package. For the most part it works. Based on comments I found somewhere I'm running the following command to lock the screen:

Code:
qdbus org.kde.screensaver /ScreenSaver Lock ; xset dpms force off
and to unlock:
Code:
xset dpms force on ; killall -9 krunner_lock kblankscrn.kss
.

The problem is that the unlock command doesn't work. My monitors will reactivate and the screensaver will display but in order to actually unlock I have to hit a key/move the mouse and enter my password.

what the command should be to actually unlock the screen since the above doesn't work.
