I am somewhat new to the Linux scene and recently installed the GNOME version of Antergos (moving over from Ubuntu 15.04). Everything works fine, apart from the fact that the computer will not lock. Been looking around for a solution on the forums and somewhere is suggested to use ‘dm-tool lock’ in the terminal, but I am just given a blank, white screen with a cursor at really low resolution. I have exhausted my limited knowledge and now I am stuck.
I will be highly grateful if this could be fixed!
Edit: I removed ‘gnome-shell-extension-status-menu-buttons 0.2-1’ and installed ‘gnome-shell-extension-lockscreen-lightdm 1.0-4’ and now I can lock the computer, but I would still prefer to use the status menu if it can be fixed.
Edit 2: Problem is now solved; I used the method here as well as a few other things:
- ‘sudo pacman -Rcns lightdm’
- ‘sudo pacman -S gdm’
- ‘sudo systemctl -f enable gdm’
- ‘sudo pacman -S light-locker’
- ‘sudo pacman -S light-locker-settings’
- restart computer
