I've seen quite a few similar questions on here, but none seem to solve my issue (or I am misapplying the answers).
I'm running a laptop on Ubuntu 19.10 largely as a media server, and am looking for the following security settings:
- On startup, require password to log in
sudopassword for changing settings, installing software etc.; BUT
- Don't require password to sign in after screen lock
I have set
nils@nils-HP-EliteBook-2560p:~$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.screensaver ubuntu-lock-on-suspend false
As suggested in this answer but this works only occasionally - after longer periods of inactivity, it still requires a password login.
Is this combination of password requirements feasible?
