Troubleshooting lock screen

Postby alf0gimail on Mon Jan 07, 2013 7:59 pm

Hi, i'm using mint 13 on an old compaq nc4010, and experiencing a strange issue : when i move (just move, not closing it) the display/lid , the screen locks, and asks me the password. I disabled lock screen in system settings/ brightness&lock, no change.
Is there a log /trace file to check why the system locks when i just touch the lid?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

found a post in another forum, this one didnt help...
I used this: sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver , I have no screensaver now but this solved my problem.

Grazie!

Mint has a setting somewhere that tells it to do whatever the screensaver says to do for lock screen behavior. There should have been an option to not lock the computer when screensaver is active. You can probably reinstall the screensaver if you want, then just make sure to uncheck the box.
