    Brightness and Lock issue after update?

    First of all, please excuse me if I am doing this wrong. I have been using ubuntu 12.04 for a while now. A week or so ago, the lock portion of the brightness and lock feature stopped working. I think maybe shortly after the update that week. In any case, I have been looking thru the forums and on the net in general and while I find a fair amount of cases where this is occurring, none of the fixes I have tried so far have rectified the issue. I have done some things, re downloaded the Gnome Screensaver and it works. Just not the lock. I can use CTRL+ALT+L to lock the screen manually, I just prefer to have it lock after the screen goes blank (I am assuming that's the Gnome screensaver), Any advice would be graciously accepted by this newbie. Also if I am violating any forum rule, please let me know. Thanks!

    Thought I would let you know what I have done thus far:

    -used brightness and lock in several ways, every combination, only the blank screen functionality works
    -removed gnome-screensaver, rebooted and reinstalled it.
    -ps -e|grep gnome-screen* shows--> 3081 ? 00:00:01 gnome-screensav
    -ran terminal -->gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver idle-activation-enabled true

    Can't find the screensaver in dconf org>gnome
    Can't find anything in ccsm
    In Ubuntu Tweak, Session Indicator the lock screen is not disabled
    All power options are disabled ie: suspend, hibernate etc

    Oh, and I am using Unity Ubuntu 12.04

    Hope some of this helps!

    weird. Fixed now. Although I tried so many things, not sure how I did it.

    I will mark as SOLVED. However, if any one happens to be able to figure out why it suddenly started working yesterday after 2 weeks, please let me know.
