Lock Screen fails using timer

Post by FuLl » Mon Apr 01, 2019 8:01 pm

I can use these:

KDE Menu's "Lock" button

or

Code: Select all

qdbus org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver /ScreenSaver Lock
or

"<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <L>"

...to lock the screen, but setting the timer where it says:
"Lock screen automatically after:"

...doesn't work. It used to maybe a month ago. Not sure which update broke it.

Could use a hand. TIA

Is there a dependency to check or a config file that might be wrong I can maybe recreate to fix this?

In your recent posts you've told us nothing about your version of LM, and nothing about your operating environment. When you have a question where the answer clearly turns on your LM version, edition or operating system, please, at the very least, post the output of this terminal command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Enclose the results between [ⅽode] and [/ⅽode] code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply. Note that it's a capital F in that command, followed by lower case xz. You can copy the text from the terminal screen by selecting it then right-clicking.

There's more in KInfocenter, if any of that would help.
