xflock4 should test running screensaver


Description Yves-Alexis Perez editbugs 2008-01-08 22:51:03 CET
xflock4 script shouldn't test for installed screensaver but rather for running screensaver.

Attached patch does this, using only ps/grep to not depend on procps (for pgrep) because some OS don't have it.

Why the brackets around the 's' characters in the grep command?
Comment 3 Yves-Alexis Perez editbugs 2008-01-08 23:05:27 CET
So the ps isn't matched.

Oh, cool.  Learn something new every day...  I'm ok with this; I'll commit it later if no one else gets to it first.
