'Unlocking failed' on Lock Screen [Solved]

Post by Fitzcarraldo » Sat May 09, 2020 22:29

Just installed from the KDE Daily 07-05-2020 and the Lock Screen displays the message 'Unlocking failed' when the correct password is entered. I had to click on 'Switch User' and enter the password to get back to the Desktop.

In case anyone experiences the same problem, the solution to the Lock Screen password problem is:

Code: Select all

# chmod 4755 /sbin/unix_chkpwd
