'Ubuntu 7.10 : screen doesn''t lock when closing laptop lid'

categories: - Linux

This used to work in Ubuntu 7.04..

Here's the fix until the feature works again (See bugreport 156226 in launchpad)

  • Open gconf-editor

  • Enable /apps/gnome-power-manager/lock/use_screensaver_settings

You should also enable "blank-screen" in the same section, I noticed the screen doesn't go blank when the lid is closed without it
