|I wonder if it'd be a stronger fix to make task-xfce-desktop recommend xscreensaver; then maybe it wouldn't install light-locker and thus not lightdm...
|or xfce4-screensaver I suppose
|Isn't xscreensaver rumored to be sketchy somehow?
|I don't recall the details at all
|The author has taken some controversial decisions, but again, just not sure
|The author is a pain to deal with, but no xscreensaver appears to do better than others.
|Fair enough Unit193
|I don't bother to install it myself, after I read these notions
|I don't see why it's needed either
|The gist of it is: If xfce4-screensaver works for you, then use it. But it has ssome issues for some, even to the point of crashing. xscreensaver seems to be the best, but yeah some don't care for it based solely on who the dev is. light-locker is always a problem. :P
|xscreensaver has a systemd contamination.
|onefang: ofc I could just research it, but I'd like to hear from you: how has systemd contaminated xscreensaver?
|I successfully use xscreensaver on Devuan, and have for years.
|Some of the files installed with xscreensaver - /usr/bin/xscreensaver-systemd /usr/lib/systemd/user/xscreensaver.service
|I still use it to.
|Ah, well, what doesn't include systemd service files these days? At least they're inert!
|I bug#758 "Changelogs are not available for forked packages" affects synaptic too.
|It affects anything that expects to download changelogs from a URL.
