OpenSUSE :: Lock Screen Key Shortcut In 11.2?

Nov 13, 2009

Possibly a silly question, but here goes...In 11.1 and below I set a key shortcut to lock the screen when I push Meta+L. However, I can't seem to find a way to do this in 11.2. I tried the following:* I looked in the keyboard shortcuts settings page and didn't see an option for screen locking* I tried right-clicking on the screen lock button on the panel and setting the shortcut, but that doesn't seem to have taken effect* I googled and searched this forum, but no luckThe default key combo seems to be Ctrl + Alt + L, which works, but I have years of muscle memory for pressing Meta + L, so I'd like to preserve that if possible

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Full-Screen Video Streaming Lock-up

Oct 15, 2010

When I play a video web stream full-screen, the image randomly freezes. I can still move the mouse and hear the audio, but I can't click on anything, and I can't get out of full-screen. No keyboard commands that I know work, and so I end up having to hold down the power button to kill the machine.

This didn't happen in Ubuntu, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. And I changed the power management settings to do nothing, but it still happens. So, I don't know what the deal is. Should I try a different flash player (I have the adobe player as default)?

OpenSUSE :: Disabling Screen Lock / Enable Display Power Management?

Sep 14, 2009

I am a brand new user coming from the MS environment. My impression of openSUSE is that it is like moving into a new house that is well built but the rooms are full of half-constructed self-assembly furniture and appliances without any specific instructions. Nor is it clear which does what and whether all are needed or not. There is a town hall down the road where fellow homeowners gather to discuss what each has managed to deduce about putting their own furniture together. The town hall has a sort of library where thousands of pieces of paper with instructions are stored in an ad-hoc filing system

My latest problem is that I have created a screensaver via the "Configure Desktop" application and set "Enable display power management" and set some timeouts.However, I seem to be asked for a password to unlock the screen when I come back to my computer. I have spent 2 hours trying to find the place where I can disable screen password locking but to no avail. I am perplexed and frustrated at how such an obvious function is so ****ed hard to configure. This is the impression I am getting of Linux in general - it is novice user-hostile and badly organised.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Catalyst 9.12 -- X Blank Screen / Hard Lock Keyboard Lights Don't Toggle?

Dec 19, 2009

I installed the new 9.12 cat drivers in the usual way (init 3; rpm -e the old drivers; generate new rpm; rpm -i new drivers; init 5), but instead of starting like I expected, I got a blank screen and what appeared to be a hard lock (keyboard lights don't toggle, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and Ctrl + Alt + F1 don't do anything).

I switched back to radeonhd, but I'd like to get the proprietary drivers working if possible.

The usual listings

[nathan@ebisu ~] lsmod | grep fgl
fglrx 2323096 0
[nathan@ebisu ~] modprobe -l | grep fgl
Looks like the driver loaded OK...
[nathan@ebisu ~] dmesg | grep fgl

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).

Slackware :: KDE 4.4.5 - No Lock Screen - No Screen Saver

Aug 23, 2010

What happens is that I resorted to deleting my .kde directory after my kid destroyed my profile where title bar, menu, konsole get broken. After deleting, I login again thus regenerating the .kde directory. To avoid my kid from messing my desktop, I tried to lock it. It does not lock.

It just need a KDE full restart perhaps since when I login the other day, it now works.

I'm updated to Slackware current for almost a month already and have not played a lot on KDE desktop (busy programming stuff).

However, on day I tried to lock the desktop in KDE to avoid the kid from destroying my cool desktop setting, but it didn't lock. Cool, so I tried screen saver and add an option to lock the screen.

When I test screen saver, it displays. But when I wait for 1 minute(I set it that way), it doesn't fire up. Not even after 15 minutes which I think the default.

It usually work before (several months ago) using the lower version of KDE. It is just last Saturday that I noticed it.

I tried to dig the profile management but I could not find anything relevant there.

Fedora :: 15 - Unable To Lock Screen

Aug 8, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15 with Gnome 3 on my laptop. I don't restart the system unless there's an update that requires me to, preferring to use the Suspend feature instead. However, I noticed that after an uptime of a few days, the screen doesn't lock anymore. Neither the shortcut 'Ctrl+Alt+L', nor the terminal command 'gnome-screensaver-command --lock' seem to work. I'm sure restarting the system will enable me to lock again, but I don't think I should restart just to get this feature back.

Does anyone know why this happens? Is there some other way to lock the screen?

Ubuntu :: Freezes Sometimes After Screen Lock?

Mar 31, 2010

Sometimes after I enter my password after the screensaver has locked the screen, it will not take my password (even though entered correctly). It seems to lock up. After about 2 mins it says something about a time-out (wish I could do screencaps). Then it will reset and have a gray window the same size as the password input window but on the upper portion of the screen, and a password entry window as normal, but in the lower part of the screen. This time, it accepts the password and logs me in.This is a 2-part post.First, how to bypass having to wait for the timeout (for whatever is timing out).The second is to see if anyone knows an answer to the problem and a fix.After it freezes, hold CTRL-ALT and tap F1.This will taking you to a virtual terminal. Log in with your username and password. Then type:

$ pkill screensa
This will match gnome-screensaver and kill the program that is frozen. You then need to type

Ubuntu :: Continous Screen Lock ?

Jun 9, 2010

I am experiencing a really annoying issue with ubuntu 10.04. Wether the "lock screen when screen saver is enabled"option is ticked or not, it will anyway request me to insert the password.

And that's but the lighter problem: Screen saver keeps poping on while I write, browse and whatever, and changing its properties won't help at all. It just keeps pestering me! (while i'm writing this, i've already had my screensaver popping in about 15 times)

And last but not least, even if I log as administrator and unthick the "request password"... it will always keep asking ... what to do?

Ubuntu :: Screen Does Not Lock Anymore

Ubuntu :: Can't Come Back From A Screen Lock

Apr 29, 2011

Living with others, I've made it a habit to lock my laptop if I walk away from it (Ctrl+Alt+L), but with the recent upgrade to 11.4 I've run into a problem: when I go to unlock my laptop it just gives me a black screen instead of the "enter your password" menu. All I get is the mouse.

The only work around I have for this is to log into a TTY and then restart the laptop.

In case it's significant, the exact process I go through is as follows: Lock my screen (Ctrl+Alt+L), close the laptop lid (power management is set to just blank the screen instead of suspend), walk away for 10+ minutes, open lid, and then I run into my error.

CentOS 5 :: Lock Screen As Root?

Aug 11, 2009

I've googled for the answer to this but every thread has the same answer "don't log in as root". For once I'd like an actual answer to the question if possible. All of the jobs that I run are all through the root account and I'm constantly using ssh into other workstations and servers to change config files or whatnot. I'd like to be able to lock the screen when I take short breaks or head out for the day while being able to leave jobs running. For example I am currently backing up a server onto another one and would prefer not having to stop the jobs when I leave for the day(there's over 400GB to move).

Debian Multimedia :: KDE Lock Screen Not Working

Jul 11, 2015

Just upgraded to Jessie from Wheezy. The process went smoothly.

I've noticed the lock screen is inescapable. The "Unlock" button does nothing, the keyboard is completely disabled, and all I have is a clock to stare at for all of eternity until I force a reboot. It doesn't hang or freeze, I'm just unable to get out of the lock screen. I've tried configuring the widgets and stuff in the System Settings, but I can't make it usable.

It was working perfectly in Wheezy, and is a pretty important feature that I use all the time when other people are around and I need to leave my station.

To change the GDM image all you really have to do is right click on the desktop and hit "Change Desktop Background" and select the picture you want and then hit the "Make Default" button and both will change naturally. (The lock screen and GDM Login background)Then just switch it back to your usual desktop wallpaper and go on about your day.

Fedora :: Lock At Boot Up Before Get Into The Login Screen

Nov 20, 2009

I just installed Fedora 12 earlier today using preupgrade. Everything seems to work alright, but I do have a couple of problems. I've had this happen twice already, but when I'm booting up, my machine will freeze once the Fedora logo is shown right before I get into the login screen. Another problem I've had is when I do boot into KDE I'll see an ! icon next to the clock telling me that there has been a crash in the kernel.

Edit: Update- It only hangs when I reboot. If I restart in windows and try to boot fedora, it hangs, if I restart in Fedora, it will hang after the restart. The only way I can boot Fedora is from a cold boot

Edit: I seemed to have fixed the problem after searching Google for 20 minutes. I just ran this command as root.. #chcon -t system_dbusd_exec_t /bin/dbus-daemon

Fedora :: Xscreensave Won't Lock Screen In FC15

Aug 5, 2011

I'm running Gnome on Fedora 15 (currently in failback mode). I've installed the Fedora provided xscreensaver RPMs and ensured that xscreensaver is running when I login (not gnome-screensaver). The problem is, when I try to lock my screen using one of the multiple "lock screen" icons nothing happens. The following line does appear in my ~/.xsession-errors file when the icon is clicked.

** (gnome-panel:3548): WARNING **: Could not ask screensaver to lock: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnkn own: The name org.gnome.ScreenSaver was not provided by any .service files

This line appears regardless of whether or not the gnome-screensaver RPM is installed. I've tried with both gnome-screensaver installed and without it installed with the same result.

Running "xscreensaver-command -lock" from the command line does successfully lock the screen.

Also, the screen lock icons do work when gnome-screensaver is installed and is set as the default screensaver. Anyway, I just upgrade to Fedora 15 recently (I've used all previous version of Fedora) and this is the first time I've run into this problem.
