Lock Screen settings in Plasma 5

Thu Mar 12, 2015 7:16 am
I have been looking up and down for lockscreen settings for Plasma 5. I can't seem to find any way to change the amount of time before it locks the screen. Any idea where the settings are? I would like to be able to turn off the auto-lock timer that runs it.

Did you try to use the search field? If I enter "Lock" I will be navigated to it. We recently changed the position. Now it's in "Desktop Behavior", it used to be in "Display and Monitor"

I feel stupid. I kept searching for things like Screen Saver. It was there, and now I feel like an idiot. Thanks! :D

I did not find a way to disable the lock screen (In KDE 5 / Kubuntu 15.04)
I just could set it to 99 minutes.
Is there any way to disable it?

Just set it to 0. The next version (5.3) has a proper checkbox.

Under which sub-menu is it now? The first one, Workspace behaviour, only has a checkbox for showing tooltips. Nothing else.

Quick:

Code: Select all
$ kcmshell5 --list | grep locker
screenlocker                     - Screen Locking Timeouts


=>

Code: Select all
$ kcmshell5 screenlocker

will show the 'Screen Locking Timeouts' module

Thank you. I was missing the "kde-config-screenlocker" package from Debian.

My problem with it is that there is a pictures slideshow but no way I can find to get rid of the login. I want the slideshow so I have to have the lock on but then the greatest amount on seconds i can enter before having a password is 300, changing to 0 unfortunately means immediately. Cest la vie.

Well, if you want it to never lock and just show the slideshow after a certain
amount of time or on a certain key combo, you could just set it up to launch
gwenview in slideshow mode.
To start the slideshow after a certain amount of time, open Power Management
in System Settings, and under Energy Saving check Run Script, enter the
command like "gwenview -fs ~/Pictures", change the Run Script drop-down to
after and enter the appropriate amount of time.
To start the slideshow on a certain key combo, go to the Shortcuts and
Gestures settings and create a new Custom Shortcut for the aforementioned
gwenview command.

Then disable screen locking via System Settings -> Desktop Behavior -> Screen Locking -> uncheck Lock Screen after ...
