I'm using BlueProximity to lock my session when my phone moves away from my computer by executing this:
Code: Select all
qdbus-qt4 org.kde.screensaver /ScreenSaver Lock

I also found several solutions to unlock Plasma 4. However, it seems that all of these solutions do not work anymore in Plasma 5 for security reasons. What is the preferred way in Plasma 5 to unlock a session by another program now?

Additionally, but not so important, it seems that the command for simulating user activity (to prevent the session from locking) also doesn't work anymore no:
Code: Select all
qdbus-qt4 org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver /ScreenSaver SimulateUserActivity

Is there a way to make this working again, too?

That... that was easy. Thank you! Just to mention it: I'm now using
Code: Select all
loginctl lock-session

as locking command and
Code: Select all
loginctl unlock-session

as unlocking and proximity command in BlueProximity.
