• Locking computer blinking cursor


    Whenever I lock my pc it shows me a blinking cursor and a black screen. I can’t unlock it so I have to restart my pc. Is there a solution to fix this problem? I am using the Gnome 3 desktop environment and the lightdm display manager.

  • You can try to look for errors from the terminal with the following command.

    journalctl | grep lock

    From my personal experience before I switched to GDM clicking the lock button did not do anything at all so there might be some known issue.
    What graphics card and driver are you using?
