gnome-screensaver 3.6.1-8ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu


gnome-screensaver (3.6.1-8ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Sync with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Add 03_fix_ltsp-fading.patch: don't fade on LTSP
    - Add 05_dbus_service.patch:
      + restore the dbus service that upstream dropped
    - Add 13_nvidia_gamma_fade_fallback.patch:
      + Fall back to XF86VM gamma fade if XRANDR gamma fade is not supported
    - Add 14_no_fade_on_user_switch.patch:
      + Disable fade on locking to work around #546578 and prevent the screen
        remaining blank after user switching.
    - Add 15_dont_crash_on_no_fade.patch:
      + Don't crash on systems that don't support XF86VM or XRANDR gamma fade,
        by testing if fade is supported on a particular screen before calling
        the fade_setup and fade_finish virtual functions
    - Add 16_dont_crash_in_kvm.patch:
      + Don't crash when the XF86VM extension doesn't allow the gamma to be set
    - Add 17_remove_top_panel.patch: Don't create the top panel.
    - Add 18_revert_dialog_layout.patch: Revert lock dialog to
      previous appearance to get username back.
    - Add 24_use_user_settings.patch: use the user settings, and
      not the default system ones, so we get the user's background when the
      screen is locked.
    - Add 25_fix_lock_command.patch: make --lock expect a reply
      so the screen gets properly locked when gnome-screensaver needs to be
      respawned by dbus. This was preventing ctrl-alt-l from locking the
      screen on the first attempt when the gnome-screensaver process was
    - Add 27_lightdm_switch_user.patch: When used under lightdm,
      use dbus to switch to greeter instead of calling gdmflexiserver.
    - Add 28_blocking_return.patch:
      + Correctly reply so the client doesn't block waiting
    - Add 28_handle_expired_creds.patch:
      + Allow handling of expired credentials.
    - Add 30_ubuntu-lock-on-suspend_gsetting.patch: Handle
      ubuntu-lock-on-suspend gsettings key. This is introduced in Ubuntu's
      gsettings-desktop-schemas package.
    - Add 32_input_sources_switcher.patch:
      + Use input sources instead of XKB layouts.
    - Add 33_budgie_support.patch:
      + enable support for gnome-control-center
      + style the lock-screen using the "Unity" patch-work
    - Add move_not_nuke.patch: When trying to acquire a contentious
      keyboard grab, don't nuke input focus, but instead move it to new grab
      window before taking grab
    - Add allow-replacement: Make the D-Bus interface able to be
      replaced, so that Unity (or others in future) can take it over if they
      want to provide their own screensaver implementations. No need to listen
      to NameOwnerChanged, only NameLost — so we don't have to wake
      gnome-screensaver up every time this signal goes across the bus.
