Package: light-locker
Version: 1.8.0-1
Followup-For: Bug #846278

Dear Maintainer,

on a Debian stable v9 with Xfce over X server "nouveau" (for Nvidia graphic
cards), I've noticed for several months this rather painful bug :
once the session is locked, either directly or after a suspend, I see the
screen "this session is locked - you'll be automatically redirected to the
unlock windows in a few seconds" (on VT7), but after a few seconds the screen
turns black, and I never see the login window for unlocking !

The only way to unlock the session is to login on a console (VT1-VT6) and there
to run this command :
loginctl unlock-session 2.

The bug exists for light-locker versions 1.7.0-3 (stable) and 1.8.0-1

So it looks like there IS indeed a bug in light-locker (launched by

(BTW : thank you for your work !)
