e: [K12OSN] screen locked how to rid



This works before you set up a user account but, iirc, once a user has
chosen to screen lock or you do this hack after setting up the user, you
have to disable it for each user. Also, iirc, the location of this
changed in later versions (stab in the dark here) because of the move to
gnome screensaver. I forget if ver. 5 or 6 was the change. Mike's note
definitely worked with ver. 4.2

Do users have access to their setting in System -> Preferences ->
Screensaver? 

regards,
William
