1. If Xscreensaver is running how do I disable the locking? I have
tried all the settings I can find, yet when I close my laptop with it
plugged in and not running on battery. When I close the lid it will
require a password when the lid is opened. The only way I have found
is to disable the screen saver.
There's a configuration for the locking of the screen in XScreensaver's
settings; are you sure you're using xscreensaver and not
I am sure that I am using XScreensaver. It was installed at the same time I
removed gnome-screensaver while following a how to I found.
I also configured the XScreensaver per instructions from the man page.
Also, have you checked the power management settings; you may have
those configured to lock the screen when the lid is closed.
I have verified power management settings are as I want them (on suspend when
not on battery power do nothing)
2. I have Xfce4-session and GNOME packages (-shell, -session-fallback
and -session) installed; will removing them cause any serious
problems with the Unity desktop?
No, you should be fine. None will interfere, either, though.
When uninstalling you'll be presented with a list of packages that're
to be removed, check this for ubuntu-desktop and, if it's not there,
then the desktop will be preserved.
Thanks for the removal tip.
