Forcing screensaver to unlock using blueproximity

http://forums.opensuse.org – Back when I used openSUSE 10.3 with KDE 3.5.x I used the KDE-specific version of blueproximity found here: K-Blueproximity KDE-Apps.org. The thing that made it great was that it integrated kscreensaver. It hasn't been updated in a couple years and isn't compatible with 4.3.x so I'm using the non-KDE-ified standard blueproximity package. For the most part it works. Based on comments I found somewhere I'm running the following command to lock the screen: Code: qdbus org.kde.screensaver /ScreenSaver Lock ; xset dpms force off and to unlock: Code: xset dpms force on ; killall -9 krunner_lock kblankscrn.kss . The problem is that the unlock command doesn't work. My monitors will reactivate and the screensaver will display but in order to actually unlock I have to hit a key/move the mouse and enter my password. My question is if anyone knows what the command should be to actually unlock the screen since the above doesn't work. In addition, there is the Proximity command field. Anyone know what this for?
