Re: about cde logout and lockscreen

Hello, does the cde session automatically logout for all the user loginâ s or particular user login? You can remove the ~home/.dt directory and login to the cde session. About the lock screen, set the screen to lock after some idle time; this can be done through style manager (/usr/dt/bin/dtstyle). I hope this helps.

Re: about cde logout and lockscreen

Hi, TMOUT environment variable used to logout automatically from of an interactive shell after the specified number of seconds. So you cann't use this to logout from CDE session.

I guess you want to disable the automatic logout from cde login. Correct me if I am wrong. Did you check the options in "Screen" on Dtstyle manager?

Re: about cde logout and lockscreen

Hello, you may need to findout is there any paramenter defined for logout in the /usr/dt/appconfig/types/C/dt.dt file under "ACTION LockDisplay" which is the action for CDE lock.
