Subject: xflock4: integrate with slimlock
Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2019 17:36:51 +0200
Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.12.1-3+devuan1
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/bin/xflock4

Hello, on an otherwise fairly standard Ascii system (installed via Xfce task)
I removed xscreensaver because... I have no use for screensavers, and
xfce4-power-manager and X itself handle actual power management just fine :)

However that breaks the xflock4 command (which is associated to some hotkeys by default);
and while I was experimenting with a way to turn off the display via an hotkey
  (the usual xset dpms force off, or xset s activate,
  not working (with or without a delay), only from Xfce's hotkeys)
I found that the default DM (slim) does indeed come with a screen locker:
it was no problem to just add it to /usr/bin/xflock4
to the "another access locking utility" section, and it works fine :)

May of course be of upstream interest too...
