I am unable to discover what command is been output on the use of Super+L key combination.

gnome-screensaver-command -l is not it, dm-tool -lock also not.

Does anybody know what it is?

  • What environment (OS, and window manager)?

dm-tool lock works for me.

Note that there is no hyphen before lock

  • ➜ ~ dm-tool lock Not running inside a display manager, XDG_SEAT_PATH not defined
