I just did a clean install of Elementary OS. For some reason, clicking lock (from the upper right) or pressing [mod] + L doesn't lock my computer. Any ideas on how to get my computer to lock?

  • Usually the command to lock the screen is [Win]+[L] or [Ctrl]+[L]. Let’s verify that the system can lock. Can you update the question to include the output of light-locker-command --lock? Could you also check to see if dm-tool lock works 🤔
