@anarch thanks for your response.
Figured out what works for me.
With lightdm as the lock screen:
In the settings menu, under privacy, Screen Lock set to Off
In the settings menu, under power, Blank Screen set to Never
In the Light Locker Settings:
- Set Blank screen after to desired duration, this will blank the screen after the set time.
- Turn on Enable light-locker.
- Set Automatically lock the session to - When the screensaver is activated.
- Apply these settings.
In startup applications, which I can see through the Tweek Tool, I have Screensaver and Screen Locker present and therefore set to start when the operating system starts.
This worked for me this post is marked as solved.
@Makaveli Thank you, your solution worked.
So from the the terminal I typed,
sudo gedit /usr/bin/screenfetch
to open the screenfetch file in a text editor with root privileges and then added # in front of each of the three lines you mentioned to comment them out and saved the file, I could have deleted the three line also as you mentioned.
Then to auto start screenfetch, opened the file manager and from the home directory typed the control + h keys to unhide the hidden files and opened the .bashrc file with a text editor and added the command screenfetch -t on the very last line of the .bashrc file.
Screenfetch with the Antergos logo appears now when the terminal is opened and the terminal now works.
Thank you for your help and will mark this post as solved.
In the Gnome environment I have installed screenfetch.
I have not added screenfetch to or edited the bashrc file.
When I run screenfetch from the terminal, any terminal program, the Antergos graphic appears but the default Terminal (Gnome terminal I believe) won’t start after closing the terminal.
Other terminal programs like Terminix and Guake work fine after running screenfetch.
Is this a bug with Gnome terminal and is it possible to fix this issue?
How do you enable screen lock / blank screen in Antergos with Gnome desktop.
What are the steps required to ensure that the screen locks or blanks after a set time. In other words what do I need to enable or disable in, Light Locker, screensaver, power and privacy settings what are the correct combinations to enable the lock screen and blank the screen?
I can see on my system that the following are available:
- Light Locker Setting is available
- Screen Locker in startup applications
- Screensaver in startup applications
- The default lock screen, I believe it to be Light DM
- Power and privacy in the settings menu
It sounds like a basic request but it is an important one that is easy to enable in other Linux operating systems and it is frustrating not being able to work this out…
