For some reason unknown to me
xautolock started to behave erroneously after I watch youtube videos. Interestingly enough this happens only when using Chromium-based browsers (Chromium, Vivaldi, Brave). Firefox does not affect the locker. If I don’t open youtube, then the locker acts as usual, I mean, it works. If I surf thru links with embedded videos but don’t watch them the locker works. So, apparently, the culprit is youtube.
Here is my i3 config line for locker:
exec --no-startup-id xautolock -time 10 -corners +00- -locker blurlock
I tried to add the following to the config line
xset dpms force standby
so, that the line looked like this:
exec --no-startup-id xautolock -time 10 -corners +00- -locker blurlock && xset dpms force standby
but to no avail. However, when I run these commands in my terminal
blurlock && xset dpms force standby &
everything runs alright, i.e. the screen blurres and blanks and locks.
After some googling I’ve read this short discussion
and tried to kill all processes in one way or another connected with youtube running in browsers, but it didn’t help.
So, any help will be appreciated. Or should I use
