[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#770539: screenblank: xlock needs to run in the background

Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.142-6
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


in /usr/share/acpi-support/screenblank the call for xlock should fork to
the background, else the script waits with the suspend until xlock
exists. So the correct line should be:

su "$XUSER" -s /bin/sh -c "/usr/bin/xlock -mode blank &"
