Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-04-19 21:53:52 UTC
gnome-screensaver exports a useful api over the session bus, but it doesn't provide a file for dbus to activate it when that api is used before screensaver is started.

This means, e.g., if the user locks the screen via dbus while the session is first starting up, that the dbus call will fail.

Add session service activation file

Right now, if components of the desktop try to use
gnome-screensaver's dbus api before its started, then they
will fail.

This commit adds a service activation file, so dbus will start
it if it's needed and not running yet.
