Fix visible desktop on resume after suspend
Open, Unbreak Now!Public

Description

When shutting my laptop, the screensaver engages just fine. However, when I open it again, there's a two second gap in between the contents of my desktop being visible and xscreensaver actually engaging. This is not good.

I raised this upstream in July, and I'm just now noticing there's a fix. This needs to be verified and SRUed. This is a workaround at best for the known xscreensaver flaw.

If you disable "Fade to black when blanking" in XScreensaver's advanced options, the desktop isn't visible before the lockscreen. Not sure whether that is the same as the fix you linked.

They did note that, but there's still some delay needed.
