Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. Starting with 14.04, Ubuntu/Unity have switched to a new solution for locking, and so have we. Also, Switch user crashes lightdm. Where do the white lines come from in my composite?

Xfce Gnome-screensaver Since at least XScreenSaver 5.22, there is another way to edit XScreenSaver's user configuration, using Xresources. Stavros amjjawad  (amjjawad) wrote on 2013-12-04: #32 @Everyone Just for the record, this bug does affect Xubuntu 13.10 as well. The light-locker project is a fork of gnome-screensaver 3.6, but cut down to a bare minimum (so no gnome-dependencies), using LightDM's greeter as the lock (and unlock) screen.

I don't know what is the difference between sleep and switch off because both seem to make my monitor enter standby mode. Xfce4 Screensaver My annoyance should probably be directed at the Xubuntu project overall, or maybe XFCE, rather than the power manager specifically? Xfce Lock Screen Not Working Tools like xscreensaver or xset can be used to change the default value set by the X server.

Which is nice in concept, of course, but it almost certainly means that their number-one priority must be to provide food/shelter for their spouses and children and to manage to spend Currently, when locking, it is assumed you are either: in a public space of sorts (the desktop at home hardly needs locking) and have walked away from the machine using a Anyway, now it is not working, and I can't figure out how to get it back to working.

I tried gnome-screensaver and xscreensaver working separately every time, but for the first I got a locked black screen - no screen saver.

In Xfce Bugzilla #9075, donarntz (donarntz) wrote on 2012-07-02: #48 Correction to previous statement, Power manager is not overriding DPMS when ticked. My screensaver was working, but then when I was watching a video, I did something to disable it (I can't recall what). I'm sorry, I fail to see the point here?! Xfce Light-locker If Power Manager Enabled is unticked, DPMS is disabled; it does not mean that XScreenSaver will relinquish control of DPMS settings.

Configuration Most options are configured on a user-by-user basis by running xscreensaver-demo.

Very annoying issue, and I would rather not have to run a shell script at log in to remedy it every time. For other environments, see Autostarting.
