"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)
