74.3 Gnome Screen Saver
The gnome-screensaver can be invoked from the command line using:
$ gnome-screensaver-command --lock
This will blank the screen, put the monitor to sleep, and lock the screen. On waking, a login prompt window appears.
On releases of Lubuntu from 13.10, the use of
gnome-screensaver replaced xscreensaver. On
upgrading Kyral it was necessary to manually update the
keyboard map by editing the file
<!-- Lock the screen on Ctrl + Alt + l--> <keybind key="C-A-l"> <action name="Execute"> <command>gnome-screensaver-command -l</command> </action>
The change takes effect on the next login or after we run:
$ openbox --reconfigure
