feature request: add lock screen settings to ubuntu tweak

Asked by Gerhard Burger on 2011-05-04

I would like to access my computer without any passwords since it is a shared computer. In the screensaver settings for ubuntu you can specify that for when the screensaver is active the screen does not have to be locked. In gconf-editor under apps/gnome-power-manager there is an option to use the screensaver setting for hibernate and suspend as well. I think this is a very handy feature, could you put it in Ubuntu Tweak as well? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I think the feature is already there.

It's located at "Power Manager", named with "Lock screen on hibernate".

Gerhard Burger (burger.ga) said : #4

I'm aware of the option you mentioned, but with this option you can manage blank screen, suspend and hibernate at the same time, which is in my opinion more handy (have a look at gconf-editor-app->apps->gnome-power-manager->lock). I won't push this question further and will mark it is solved.

OK, do you mean the key "/apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/use_screensaver_settings"?

I will add it to the next version of Ubuntu Tweak.
