this isnt the first time this has been discussed but im hoping for it to be a new approach to fixing the issue.
a few weeks ago i followed @linux-aarhus 's tutorial on switching from gdm to lightdm on gnome, all worked out great except for one issue where gnome does not want to let lightdm lock upon sleep/suspend .
ive tried light-locker,light-locker-settings, tried playing in gconf without solution. ive searched arch,antergos,google,bing,etc… the problem seems to exist on each of those forums but no solid solution has been figured out as far as i know. the lockscreen button does nothing, xset only flashes the screen.
*THE ONLY thing ive found to lock the screen properly without issue is a gnome extension called “LightDM Lock Screen” , this puts a lock icon on the top bar, click it and it locks sending you to the normal lightdm lock screen which is what i want . the problem being is i would like this extension to activate upon sleep/suspend automatically .
is it possible and how would i go about doing it?
any help would be appreciated, thanks.
