Xfce Screensaver 0.1.4 Released

Featuring numerous performance improvements and an improved low-power resource footprint, Xfce Screensaver 0.1.4 continues to improve screen locking on Xfce.

Xfce Screensaver 0.1.4 Released

What’s New?


  • Added support for screen locking when the system goes to sleep (Xfce #15001), via a shared preference with Xfce Power Manager. A new configuration option, “Lock Screen with System Sleep” was added to the Screensaver Preferences dialog to accommodate this.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed password entry after forcefully grabbing input focus (Xfce #15042)


  • Faster screen locking when activated
  • Faster rendering of the authentication prompt
  • Improved handling of monitor (dis-)connection events
  • Improved screensaver and locking activation when idle
  • Improved laptop lid support: The lock screen is now displayed immediately when the laptop lid is open, instead of requiring a wake event from the keyboard or mouse
  • Improved low-power state: Screensavers are now suspended when monitors are powered off via DPMS (Debian #921835)
