XFCE Not locking screen after hibernate and/or suspend

Hi all,

There seems to be a problem with the locking screen feature in xfce when doing the suspend and/or hibernate in the Logout dialog.
Only works with the key action (Fn + Suspend).

I opened a bug:

http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16299

If it is an upstream problem, like the packager said, how can this little annoiance be resolved.


Thanks in advance.

If you enter this command in a terminal, will it lock? If not, install xscreensaver and try again. (If that doesn't help, I'm out of ideas.)

$ xscreensaver-command -lock

Hi scorpyn,

Yes xscreensaver locks the screen and pm-utils works very well.
I believe that the problem is that the Logout dialog when I select Suspend or Hibernate, not locking the screen before doing the actions.
Or it not honours the setting in the Xfce Power Manager Preferences: Lock the screen when going for suspend/hibernate.

Thanks,

@dgr48

Any chance you've since found a solution for this?

I am also facing this issue. But this is such a old thread. Last post was more than 4 years ago.
