Deletion Proposal

The package no longer exists in the repos or AUR and the functionality is superseded by systemd and other, better tools. This page should be deleted. Jasonwryan (talk) 06:20, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

"Locking the screen saver on hibernate or suspend" does not work

This script does not work. --Ninquitassar 09:09, 12 January 2012 (EST)

The script says ""/usr/bin/slimlock" & # or any other such as /usr/bin/xscreensaver-command -lock"
Are you sure you have /usr/bin/slimlock properly installed? What does it say when run manually? Rava (talk) 09:57, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
