'Lock screen' doesn't do anything

Post by Jared H » Fri, 15 Nov 2002 13:49:45



This is a little strange.  The 'lock screen' menu selection does nothing
in my RH 8.0/KDE 3 installation.  Worked fine with KDE 2.

To add to that, invoking xlock from the 'run' screen locks the screen but
leaves the panel up!  Now that is unusual.  Is there a display setting I
missed?

TIA -

Regards,
jh

I have the same problem. After killing process kdesktop_lock I can lock
my screen. But I don't know why this process is running after I unlocked
the screen. I asked this here some days ago but got now answer!

A solution could be: Modify the menu entry to first kill kdektop_lock.
But how to do it? Is this entry "hard wired"?

No, any menu entry can be edited.  Just write a small shell script to
do what you want.

I decided to run xlock from the 'Run' line.  It worked; this morning,
when I finished what I was doing I picked the 'lock screen' menu pick
by accident and it worked.  Strange indeed...

How can the entry for locking the desktop be edited? I don't see it in
the menu editor! I've searched the whole tree!

1. The pager 'LESS' doesn't know where the screen bottom is

     Can someone one help me.  I never have problems using the pager
"less" except with Linux.  I've tested every terminal emulation that I
know from Linux to ansi, VT100, VT220, and I get the same thing.  The
status line will end around line 22 while there's still text below all
the way to line 25 of the terminal.  Actually I only get this problem at
the console.
     Can someone suggest to me a possible culprit.
     I'm using Linux kernel 2.0.29, Slackware.
     Thanks in advance for any suggestions or comments.
