Ubuntu: Unable to lock screen after upgrading to 12.04


After upgrading to 12.04, I can't lock my screen anymore, has anyone encountered this and found a solution? Basically the keyboard shortcut does nothing and even if I select the lock option from the menu it still doesn't do anything at all. At the moment I have to keep logging out everytime I leave my workstation.

Thanks in advanced.



Sometimes, after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04, the Lock Screen functionality stops working. The likely problem is that gnome-screensaver has been uninstalled. Just do on the terminal

sudo apt-get install gnome-screensaver
