comment Unlock screen in 14.04 without `gnome-screensaver-command`
@Braiam, I understand that this is not a place to submit bug reports and how to circumvent bugs. There is another place for bug reports. But my post here would be very inappropriate in that bug report. So if this is not the correct place to figure out a working way to lock and then unlock ubuntu in 14.04, then what is? Anyway thx for the link. I will check it out.

@Braiam, perhaps you should read my question again. I am not asking about the bug being fixed. I am asking for an alternative tool while pointing out that this one is not working due to a known bug.

@Braiam 1. I do not know about later!! How can I? There is no later version yet. As of now it is only 14.04. And I did not ask about bugs. So if you don't mind, I will revert your edit.

@Braiam This question is specific to 14.04 and later. Why did you remove the tag? There is no reason why to avoid using gnome-screensaver-command in earlier versions!

Hey, this look pretty good, but unfortunately storing password in clean text is not option. Its almost as bad a running everything in root as my user is on the sudoers list. But I think a combination of your two answers would work. I will try something out as soon as i can. Basically dim the screen until the mouse moves, a key is pressed or the bluetooth device comes back in range. If mouse moves or key is pressed, switch the screen back on and run gnome-screensaver-command -l so that a password can be entered while the bluetooth device is absent. I think it should be doable.

Hey nice idea! Would it be possible to change such that any keyboard input will lock the screen instead (giving a chance of unlocking it without the bluetooth device) instead of ignoring all keyboard input?
