Okay the suckless-tools package contains 'slock' which takes priority over i3lock in the in the screenlock script (/usr/bin/lxlock), so....

Uninstall suckless-tools and the screensaver should work again:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge suckless-tools



if for some reason you cannot uninstall suckless-tools (maybe because something else you have installed depends on it), instead run:
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /usr/bin/lxlock
and comment out these 2 lines
Code: [Select]
elif which slock >/dev/null; then
    slock &
so they now read
Code: [Select]
# elif which slock >/dev/null; then
#     slock &
SAVE the file .. and now test the screenlock

Suckless tools sucked for me, but now they're gone.

Thank you.
