Having the same issue in Porteus v30.1 LXDE using xscreensaver-5.29-i486-1_slack14.1.xzm downloaded with USM.
I changed guest user password, but no change.
Code: Select all
guest@porteus:~$ ls -l $(which xscreensaver) -rwxr-s--x 1 root shadow 229100 Aug 1 15:48 /usr/bin/xscreensaver guest@porteus:~$ xscreensaver &  8075 guest@porteus:~$ xscreensaver: 15:24:30: couldn't get password of "guest" xscreensaver: 15:24:30: couldn't get password of "root" xscreensaver: 15:24:30: locking is disabled (error getting password). xscreensaver: 15:24:30: does xscreensaver need to be setuid? consult the manual.
