I use Ubuntu 12.10 but I did not really like Unity GUI because of performance issues and total inability to easily customize launcher. So I switched to Xubuntu, which is much faster BUT I have a problem, that our company messaging software is not able to detect when I lock the screen so it does not change my status to away.
I have the screen locked. I get a call and I can still answer it and see the number and contact without unlocking the screen. This might be the same for texts, not sure yet.
I did some Googling and there seems to be a setting that can change how much the screen lock blocks. I think I checked everywhere in the phone but don't see this option. It's a ZTE AWE phone with jelly bean.
I am using widgetlocker with dashclock on my lock screen of my 4.3 sense 5.5 device. One thing that's bugging me is that I want to change the status bar so it's transparent on the lock screen. At the moment it's black. Can this be done?
Does anyone know of a weather app that has quick status icon instead of taking up the entire lock screen or using background images I can't change? I've tried a few different ones and none of them seem to support the quick status section on the lock screen. So I am hoping some XDA member knows of one that has this ability.
I noticed today that when screen is locked with slide security you can still pull down status bar and unlock phone as well you can hit the menu button to unlock phone. If I put to face or pattern these options go away. Is there a way to lock status bar when in lockscreen? And more so lock menu button in lock screen so the phone doesn't open in my procket? I'm running Baked Bean ROM.
To access camera on lock screen, I need to disable secure lock such as pattern lock or pin code lock so I can access camera from lock screen. Otherwise, it will unlock and ask for code to unlock before start camera.
