My session is not locking, either manually or when sleep or standby xflock4 does nothing

dt1:light-locker-command -a

(light-locker-command:9191): GLib-CRITICAL **: the GVariant format string '(b)' has a type of '(b)' but the given value has a type of '(s)'

(light-locker-command:9191): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_get: assertion 'valid_format_string (format_string, TRUE, value)' failed

xubuntu 16.04.3

  • I tried removing and re-installing light-locker – brad80242 Oct 26 '17 at 3:08
  • Progress. I needed to run light-locker (command line). Not sure how it got broken or if it will work after next reboot. The error handling could really be improved. – brad80242 Oct 26 '17 at 3:25
