What happens on 'Lock' via In-Session toolbar

rolandg Posts: 56 ✭✭


to help on a TV survey i played with the In-Session toolbar.

I use on both sides linux (openSuse Leap 15.1, KDE, X11)

on 'Action' - 'Lock' - 'Lock Now' the screen in the TV window went black.

And it stays black :-(
started new session: screen is black
restarted the local TV client: connect: screen is black

How to get the login screen again ?

BTW: the 'File Transfer' feature still works.

What happens technically, when I use 'Lock now' ? 

plz help.

    Teamviewer log on the remote box says:

    WorkstationLocker::LockWorkstation() lock.
     DX0! SessionLock: Interface not available or method call failed with an exception: DBus: 'org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply' (Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.) when calling 'org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.Lock' on '/ScreenSaver'
     DX0 SessionLock: using /usr/bin/xdg-screensaver
     DX0 SessionLock: Locking succeeded using xdg-screensaver

    qdbus reports the Lock() method with a void response

    qdbus org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver /ScreenSaver | grep Lock
    method void org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.Lock()
