Screen lock is not working after upgrade to Mint 19

Post by Hovy » Thu Sep 06, 2018 1:12 pm

Hello Mint Forum,

I recently found the time to update to Mint 19. Everything worked fine, but the screen lock is not working properly anymore. Means screen is not getting locked anymore with shortcut or the start menu button.

I found a workaround to run the cinnamon-screensaver in a screen session via the terminal separately, this fixes the issue but it is driving me nuts what actually causes the problem in the first place.

I also tried running a small script 20s after the login to cinnamon using “Startup Applications” but this also don't work.
Script:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
screen -dmS CinnamonScreensaver-Fix -c 'killall cinnamon-screensaver; sleep 1;  cinnamon-screensaver'
Can anyone give advise how to fix this issue properly so that the screensaver (and screen lock) runs normal again?
