Description François Charlier 2017-12-20 13:55:19 UTC
xdg-screensaver invokes a xautolock with a wrong parameter for the reset action.

Currently it executes: "xautolock -restart"

To do what the manpage says, it should instead execute: "xautolock -unlocknow"

Calling with '-restart' causes some issues where xautolock will not work correctly after the call.



- From xdg-screensaver manpage:

       reset          Turns the screensaver off immediately. If the screen was locked the user may be asked to authenticate first.



- From xautolock manpage:

       -restart        Causes an already running xautolock process (if there is one and it does not have -secure switched on) to restart.

       -unlocknow      Causes  an already running xautolock process (if there is one, if it does not have -secure switched on, and is not currently disabled) to unlock the display immediately (if it's locked) by sending the locker a SIGTERM signal.
