Lockscreen problem - showing desktop

Postby jughead88 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:46 pm


I have a problem that is kind of a big deal.
When I lock the screen (Windows+L) and I wait for it to turn black, when I try to unlock my laptop again, the only way to get to the login screen is to either use my mouse or press ESC on my keyboard.
With the mouse, there's no problem, but I don't like using the mouse every time, I prefer to use the keyboard for speed.
The problem is, when I click on ESC, the lockscreen go away and I see my desktop for 2 or 3 seconds then the screen turns black for 3 seconds and the login screen appears. Every one can take a peek of all the windows that are open.
I did a fresh install yesterday, but it does the same thing.
I never had a problem like this before with other distros.
This is the model I use GL553VD-Q72S-CB.

Thank you guys.
