Bug Description

In gnome-shell 3.5.4 (quantal), there is a "lock" entry in the user menu. If I press it, nothing happens.

Yes, I can confirm this. The keyboard shortcut (CTRL+L) works fine. I suspect this is because GNOME Shell 3.5 seems to be tied pretty heavily with GDM 3.5 (which isn't available for Ubuntu at this time) but I haven't looked at the issue closely yet.

  [ Rico Tzschichholz ]
  * New upstream release (LP: #1035742).
  * debian/control.in:
    - Bump minimum clutter, gnome-bluetooth, gnome-desktop, & mutter versions
    - Build-depend on ibus and depend on gir1.2-ibus-1.0 (LP: #1044962)
  * 22-remove-gdmgreeter-dep.patch:
    - Dropped, GDM 3.5 is in Ubuntu now

  [ Jeremy Bicha ]
  * debian/patches/90_dont-lock-without-gdm.patch:
    - Disable lock screen if GDM isn't running. If you need password-protected
      screen lock, you need to be using GDM as your default login screen.
  * debian/source_gnome-shell.py, debian/gnome-shell-common.install:
    - Add basic apport hook to report custom settings,
      particularly what extensions are enabled & what theme is used
