Screen lock button doesn't work!

Post by theonlyrealperson »

I'm running Bianca 2.2, on an IBM laptop T42p with ATI graphics. I don't have fglrx or anything installed (fglrx doesn't work with my Mobility 7500). I have Beryl, Gnome, and KDE installed.

I had to reinstall last night, because I screwed something up. I have my home directory on a separate partition, so I didn't have to fix much.

My problem is, the "lock screen" button in the Gnome Mint menu doesn't work anymore! I don't even know where to begin to fix it. I really need it too - because I sometimes have to leave my laptop around "friends" - and you know that's just asking for trouble. It doesn't work with either the Beryl window manager nor the Metacity window manager in use.

Where can I begin to fix it?

False alarm guys - it decided to work all of a sudden. I've moved places two times, which means two reboots - and now all of a sudden it works. I even tested it by starting beryl, and then stopping beryl.

I don't know what happened, but now it works anyway!!!


Thank you so much guys!
