Add Lock Screen to Panel

Postby Kraydl » Fri Dec 21, 2007 3:10 pm

In my Ubuntu 7.10 and prior installs, I could add "Lock Screen" to my panel, so I could click it when I left the computer and it would screensave and enable the password lock. I don't see that listed when I try to add to panel in Mint.

Is there a way to get that lock screen item on the panel bar in Mint?

This is the command "gnome-screensaver-command --lock"(Don't use quotes in the command) you have to add it as a custom application launcher.
