As Chris Webber mentioned on the mailing list (IIRC), you=E2=80=99ll also h=
ave
to enable xscreensaver in the OS config:

  (use-modules (gnu services xorg))

  (operating-system
    ;; =E2=80=A6
    (services (cons (screen-locker-service "xscreensaver")
                    %desktop-services)))

Could you try and report back?

I guess we=E2=80=99ll enable it by default in %desktop-services.

Thanks,
Ludo=E2=80=99.

Hi!

I just installed the xscreensaver package in Xfce and added it to
autostart.  I also enabled the screen lock from the xscreensaver-demo
window.  Now, if I manually run xflock4 or leave the computer alone for
a couple of minutes the screensaver starts and when I move the mouse the
unlock box appears with this text:

XscreenSaver 5.35
My hostname
Authentication failed!
My username
[OK]

Any keyboard or mouse button input just closes the unlock box and the
screensaver resumes.  I'm able to escape, however, by pressing
ctrl+alt+F2 to open a new TTY from where it's possible to log in and
shut down the computer.

Albin
