[Bug 244446] New: screen is locked although kcontrol-settings should be "overwritten"

Summary: screen is locked although kcontrol-settings should be
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If one enables in kcontrol "lock after x seconds" for the screensaver but
disables "start screensaver" the "lock after x seconds" is greyed out and
should hence not be used.

However, kpowersave starts the screensaver (bug 244441) and thereby enables the
"lock after x seconds", which does not make sense since this setting is neither
enabled in kpowersave nor kcontrol.

So there are several possiblities:

- Do not use the setting from kcontrol, i.e. "lock after x seconds" is not
available, if "use special screensaver settings" in kpowersave is enabled, even
if it is enabled (and greyed out) in kcontrol.

- Use the setting from kcontrol, if "enable screensaver" in kcontrol is

- Provide the "lock after x" seconds setting in the kpowersave-GUI and ignore
kcontrols if "special ..." is activated.
