Is there any way to bind keyboard shortcut for lock screen? I'm runnung Ubuntu 5.04 and I've tried the system > keyboard shortcuts menu already. I didn't find it there.

Running the command xscrennsaver-command -lock locks the screen.

You can use xbindkeys to bind keys to commands of your choice.

you're welcome.

Perhaps you should mark the thread as `solved', see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=351315 for an example of what I mean.
