pam + gnome-screensaver


I have pam_usb installed to authenticate via my usb key, and it seems to work for all things except for gnome-screensaver when it locks the screen (same thing when I switch users). It just asks for a password like normal.

Here is my /etc/pam.d/gnome-screensaver:
Code:
@include common-auth
Here is my /etc/pam.d/common-auth:
Code:
@include usbhotplug
auth required pam_unix.so nullok_secure
And, finally, my /etc/pam.d/usbhotplug:
Code:
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_usb.so !check_device debug allow_remote log_file=/var/log/pam_usb.log fs=vfat
Any ideas?

One more thing. I had to manually create /etc/pam.d/gnome-screensaver, so maybe my gnome-screensaver isn't a PAM capable build? How could I check.

If it helps, I'm running Ubuntu Feisty.

Has anybody gotten any PAM modules to work with gnome-screensaver?
