How to get rid of the clock lock screen on fedora

0 votes

I upgraded several laptops and machines to F19. On all of them except one laptop, when waking up the desktop is blocked by a clock screen, that needs to be rolled out of the way.

One laptop consistently wakes up directly into the desktop.

I compared all the configuration settings I can think of, and everything seems to be the same but I'd like to fix all the other machines so that they go directly into the desktop, without having to deal with the clock screen.

I was wondering about that too and did some searching. Apparently the official name for it is "screen shield", and unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a config setting for getting rid of it. See the comments at

Actually, I did more digging, and found it:
In settings, under "Power", there's a "Blank Screen" setting. Set it to  "Never".

I somehow deleted /tmp when I was deleting files from /tmp to make room. Now I get errors when I boot and try to login

There is a problem with the configuration server.
(/usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)

When I close that, I get:

Install problem!
The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator.

One time I saw the login options - when I logged in I only saw a black screen. Other than doing an install, is there a way to recover the files in /tmp?

How does one get a clean installation of Fedora? "Clean" means that only those packages are installed that are actually needed and only those services are running that are actually needed.
