i just freshly install manjaro xfce iso and after that i notice one thing that xflock4 icon does not work when i press icon
What if you run xflock In the terminal…
Did you check:
I think this is related to a somewhat recent decision by Manjaro to add
xfce4-screensaver to the ISO. This package includes a screen locker. According to the package notes, to avoid the chance of “double-locking” the screen, Manjaro removed the
light-locker package which was formerly called by
xflock4 to lock the screen.
If you open a terminal and launch
xflock4 from the command line you’ll get an error. I think something in the Manjaro defaults needs to be fixed so that the
xflock4 script no longer bombs.
My workaround was to deactivate the
xfce4-screensaver lock screen and install
light-locker. That got me back “to the way things used to be.”
/usr/bin/xflock4 does not have an icon because it is just a script to find the correct command to lock the screen, depending on which package is configured as default screen locker:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /general/LockCommand
- xfce4-screensaver –
- light-locker –
- xscreensaver –
For me, has wrongly reported
light-locker-command --lock; I say “wrongly” because
light-locker is not installed on my system.
To properly set the locker (in my case
xfce4-screensaver) I had to execute the following command:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /general/LockCommand -s "xfce4-screensaver-command --lock" -n -t string
Thankyou so much for helping me,i use both and these works but is their an method when screen is locked it don’t go to blanking screen.
i just need it to be lock 'no blank screen
