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


Does any of the following actions make the bug to stop?:
- Switch to a non terminal window.
- Pressing the Alt + Tab key combination.
- Minimizing and maximizing the application.

Does locking the screen (Ctrl+L) make the bug to appear?

  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.
