Bug Description

Binary package hint: xscreensaver

Clicking 'New Login' in lucid reports no longer implemented by gdmflexiserver. However, running gdmflexiserver from the command line results in me being taken to the gdm login screen so I'm guessing xscreensaver just needs to be patched to execute the correct command necessary to work with the new gdm.

Confirmed; 'debian/patches/53_XScreenSaver.ad.in.patch' needs to be updated to set the new login command as just 'gdmflexiserver' instead of 'gdmflexiserver -l -a -c FLEXI_XSERVER'.

Thanks for sorting that out. This would be the same in Debian I presume?

Committed fix to lp:~ubuntu-desktop/xscreensaver/ubuntu

Tormod Volden: If Debian is now using the new GDM, then yes.

Debian is using gdm 2.20, for the fourth year now :)
