[Bug 1483868] Re: keyboard doesn't work after xscreensaver shuts down the monitor


I have one more bit of information to add. I have just logged in and
clicked into and Emacs X11 window. The cursor in Emacs moved to the
place I have clicked onto but it stayed unfilled which means the Emacs
X11 window does not have focus. So, it seems like this whole issue has
something to do with focus.

  keyboard doesn't work after xscreensaver shuts down the monitor

Status in xscreensaver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am experiencing the same symptoms as described in
  screensaver/+bug/586528. This bug report is new on request.

  I run Xubuntu with XFCE, xscreensaver and Light Locker. Recently,
  whenever I log back (twice, once through locker and once through
  xscreensaver), the X11 applications are not accepting keyboard input.
  I can switch desktops using keyboard shortcuts, though. What fixes the
  issue for me is switching into a Terminal window. Then the keyboard
  input start working.
