Hi guys, I hope you're doing fine.
I would like to get some guidance/opinions regarding this subject. The
default screensaver for xfce spin is xscreensaver that I didn't like it.
Reading about how to make it more appealing I found this:
Which made me feel more fond to it, but I kept reading and found that
light-locker can do the work without sacrificing (too much?) security.
That brings one of my questions, is light-locker secure enough to be a
replacement for xscreensaver?
Then, I set up a VM to test this instructions regarding installing
which basically says:
* sudo dnf install light-locker
* sudo dnf remove xscreensaver*
* reboot system
but they didn't work with this error
Property "/general/LockCommand" does not exist on channel
Doing more research led me to this:
That adds this line '<property name="LockCommand"
value=""/>' , without quotes, to the file /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-
The patch is for xfce4-session 4.12.0 and the version installed is
4.12.1-9.fc25. I checked the file in question and it doesn't have the line
therefore I added to it.
Now, xflock4 doesn't show any error but the screen is not getting locked.
So, I kept researching and found this:
that recommends create the property for the 'gnome-screensaver'.
$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -p /general/LockCommand -s "dm-tool lock"
--create -t string
after executing the above line, xflock4 works with light-locker.
Now I have some doubts if the procedure is fine or if there is a better
way to achieve this? And regarding the line added, is this something that
could be included in the system?
Thank you all for the help!

That guide mentions using the power manager settings to set Light Locker to
lock. Did you try that?
That works for me.
