Title: How to Switch User when screen is locked? - (SOLVED)
Post by: theedude on March 28, 2019, 11:50:12 am
My wife and I share this computer. When my  screen locks, there is no way for my  wife to login. I have to log in my session, click switch user, and then she can log in. Is there a way to enable this from the lock screen?

Hi theedude, and welcome to the forum :)

The easiest solution would probably be to install light-locker and light-locker-settings
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install light-locker light-locker-settings
then REBOOT (so it takes over fully from i3lock).

Light-Locker drops you to the login screen when the system locks.
