  1. [ubuntu] Re: Pangolin not asking for password after resume or hibernate

    Under System Settings -> Brightness and Lock, I have a check box next to "Require my password when waking from suspend"

    Try setting it to have root as the owner with chown

    Then, set the permissions with:


    sudo chmod -R 755 /usr
