You can just type #1271 if you want to link to another issue or pull request, no need to type HTML for that.

We only need this with Gnome 3.6, right?

@leigh123linux

@AlbertJP Yes that is correct.

@bjo81

Works with Gnome 3.6 on Arch Linux.

@orschiro

I guess I am facing the same issue. I am running Cinnamon 1.6 on Arch and I cannot run gnome-screensaver.

It will simply look like that and nothing happens:

[orschiro@thinkpad ~]$ gnome-screensaver

Thanks for this Leigh. It helps.
We got this done in Mint 14 and I would encourage all distributions to fix this.
I disagree with this being a fix that needs to go in Cinnamon itself though. This should be fixed at the distribution level.

@clefebvre You basically want every distribution to package this, because you want to avoid problems on those that still run Gnome 3.4?

@clefebvre

Unless you register cinnamon at feedesktop.org this isn't going to be easy, why are you making it hard.

@leigh123linux what about all the programs that are OnlyShowIn=GNOME or Unity. Adding Cinnamon would essentially break every 3rd party application that hasn't included Cinnamon in their desktop file, wouldn't it? Maybe I don't quite understand the desktop standards, but that's the gist I got from it.

@leigh123linux

@mtwebster I was frustrated at Clem's refusal to fix this.

I can't see any distro using gnome-screensaver-3.6 that will agree with Clem on this as it will breaks it for gnome

screensaver only starts for fallback in gnome

AutostartCondition=GNOME3 if-session gnome-fallback

@abarysiuk

So is there any fix for this? Or workaround to get it works?
