Xflock locks the screen, but never asks for a password at any time.


If I type in the terminal xflock4 it locks normally, suspend, but also without asking for the user password.

Any Jedi knows something for help? :P

Tip: Using lightdm as a display manager.

Hi
I think it might be a polkit thing.
Try creating a file
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/40-lockscreen.rules

Code:

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.lock-sessions" ||
        action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.suspend"
         {
        return polkit.Result.NO;
    }
});


If you get problems then just delete the file.
You can get a full list of polkit rules by typing
pkaction
and more info on any rule by
pkaction -v -a <rule-name>

BUT
before doing all this maybe you should try xfce power settings from the desktop.
