[Question #194873]: Enable screenlock on thin (fat) clients


New question #194873 on Epoptes:

I was wondering if there is any way to enable screen locking for the thin clients.  I tried "gnome-screensaver-command -l" , but it doesn't do anything.  I can activate the screensaver via "gnome-screensaver-command -a" ,but this does not lock the screen.

It's really nice that the epoptes client can restrict screen locking, but in my proposed setup, students locking their screens would be necessary (otherwise, they would have to completely logging off during breaks so that noone would see their personal data).

The environment is mixed with thick clients, so the instructor may or may not be using epoptes, at least in the initial rollout.  I would like the students to choose whether they would boot the thick client and share a group logon (currently in place) or boot to a personal account via Edubuntu.

I am on Ubuntu 12.04 serving fat clients.  Please let me know if you need any addtional information.

Great job with Epoptes!!  The instructors really like its current capabilities.
