(Cinnamon) Screensaver stops working

Post by Dr. Octagon » Tue Aug 29, 2017 2:27 pm

Hello,

(since maybe 10 days) I am aware that the screensaver of cinnamon (3.4.2+betsy) doesn't come up anymore if the system itself is up for over an hour... even initiate the process by clicking the icon/button in the menu to seal the screen isn't possible anymore (no reaction by clicking).
Does anyone else experienced the same?

Ok, because it is still a bug - around 2.5 years ago (!) it was first mentioned - I would like to paste this as an actual warning for concerned users / sensible systems (it happens to me every day!):

"Lock screen" does not actually lock anything #194
https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-s ... issues/194

Because one hour ago the screensaver was initialised by clicking the menu-icon... and after my return the screensaver was completly off -> I have to remind "at least me" by a new post! :shock:
