    Lost 'Lock' option from system menu...

    Anyone else notice this has gone?

    How can I get it back?

    Cheers.

    Unity, right?

    Working here...

    Never used it before. It locked my screen, and displayed a dialog box, asking for my password.

    Entered my password, and the desktop popped right up again.

    Greetings,
    Just out of curiosity try Ctrl-Alt-L and see what happens.

    Lock is an option displayed when you select log out from the menu

    i've also got that issue, and the workaround is to reset unity (unity-tweak-tool also does the job)
