I recently installed Fedora 22 and Im using GNOME v3.16.2. I am new to Fedora, but moderately experienced with Linux. I can not figure out how to lock my screen with a keyboard shortcut.

I have tried setting the Lock Screen shortcut to Ctrl-Alt-L and Super-L in the keyboard settings. But no matter what I set key binding to, nothing ever happens.

The only way I can lock my screen is to manually open XScreenSaver, start the daemon and manually lock the screen. But this is not the lock screen I am used to from running an older version of GNOME on SUSE 11.

Is there a package that should be installed to get the lock screen capability that I could search for?

That's weird, 'Super-L' works fine for me.

Super+L should work, in any case review the keyboard shortcuts on the control panel and choose the one will work for you

My point in my question is that none of the shortcuts I choose for Lock Screen are working. I suspect that something more fundamental than the shortcut is broken or misconfigured. But I don't knoe where to start to debug this potential issue..
