    Question 11.4 Gnome 3.2 64 Bit Lock Screen Issue

    I did a fresh install with all patches of 11.4 with Gnome 3.2 and when ever I click lock screen or do a CTRL+ALT+L the desktop freezes. My cursor continues to function but nothing else. I can switch to a virtual terminal and do an init 3 and init 5 again to log in but it becomes a real pain.
    It's an issue because I really don't like leaving my laptop unlocked when at a customer.
    I can't really seem to find any information in /var/log/messages,warn or Xorg.. where can I start to find out what is going on?

    Anyone else having any issues like this?

    Thanks!

    Hi
    I disabled gnome-screensaver... so you installed from the live cd?

    You can also try the commands here;
    https://live.gnome.org/GnomeScreensa...at_can_I_do.3F

    It gets to fading out for me, then locks so there is a bug somewhere...

    Hi
    Yup at the moment, the netbook doesn't travel to anywhere i need to
    lock. Still investigating, the fade out doesn't complete hence the
    freeze...

    Mine doesn't even start to fade. As soon as the screensaver even thinks about being enabled it stops responding.. frustrating..

    I found this.. just looks like the dbus-1-glib is too out of date with openSuSE 11.4.

    Hi
    Just did a test build of dbus-1-glib version 0.98 and still no luck, so
    there is still something there....

    Dang. I'm thinking I might switch to Arch for the time being. I have no issues with my Gnome 3.2 install on that.. May have to wait for openSUSE 12 to come out.
