LXer: Screen Lock Vs Login Screen in the upcoming Gnome

Published at LXer:

Gnome developers work on a Screen Lock that is useful mostly for touch devices. They also work in a new Login Screen. The main purpose of screen lock is obviously to prevent accidentally actions to happen in the system. While Screen Lock shares lot of similarities with Login Screen -currently GDM- , it seems that these two arenít compatible and will not be merged.
