There is: joost@eve ~ $ cat /usr/local/bin/unlock-screens.sh ck-list-sessions | grep Session | sed 's/\(.*\):/dbus-send --system --print- reply --dest\=\"org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit\" \/org\/freedesktop\/ConsoleKit\/ \1 org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Session.Unlock/' | sh joost@eve ~ $ cat /usr/local/bin/lock-screens.sh ck-list-sessions | grep Session | sed 's/\(.*\):/dbus-send --system --print- reply --dest\=\"org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit\" \/org\/freedesktop\/ConsoleKit\/ \1 org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Session.Lock/' | sh I build these when I encountered this same issue nearly a year ago. I run them as "root" and they will (un)lock ALL X-sessions.

If it works better, I have no issue with it being pulled in.

Better solutions are always welcome. -- Joost
