Getting GNOME 3.6 lockscreen from Cinnamon

Postby ztowfic on Tue Jan 15, 2013 12:53 pm

Hi!

I hope this is not as big of a faux pas as I am thinking, but I would like the GNOME 3.6 lockscreen (GDM 3.6.1) to be called from Cinnamon 1.6.7. I am not a expert, but my impression is that the lockscreen is part of GDM as opposed to gnome shell. If this is true (again, I am not sure about that), then how can I get that lockscreen to be called from within Cinnamon?

As a sidenote, I am now beginning to think that my understanding that this lockscreen is part of GDM is not true since I cannot get it from Unity either (just straight up gnome shell).

Thank you!

Nevermind. I looked through the code for GNOME, and apparently the lock-screen is written into gnome-shell, not just GDM. I feel like this is bad design, but who am I to tell them how to program?
