Lock screen not working properly following upgrade from 19.3 to 20

Post by Shiratori »

I upgraded my laptop from 19.3 to 20 this morning. Since then, when I wake from sleep the lock screen does not display. Instead, it shows the contents of my desktop (the lock screen is actually active as I can't click on anything and if I type my password and press return it unlocks the laptop). I've tried rebooting but the problem persists.

Lenovo Thinkpad T430 running LM20 Cinnamon.

I experience the same issue (Lenovo B50-50). However, thank you for sharing that the lock screen is actually active, because before I knew that, I simply killed Xorg (and thus any work I did in that session) to log back in.

I ended up just doing a wipe and fresh install. Just getting everything back to how I like it now…
