Bug Description

The keybind to lock the screen (crtl+alt+l) in the openbox default configuration file is still using the obsolete (and removed) xscreensaver-command.


Relevant part:
<keybind key="C-A-l">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>xscreensaver-command -lock</command>

Expected behavior:
using lightdm to lock the screen.

Occuring behaviour:
Error message (No such file or directory) since xscreensaver is not included anymore.
