I did not. Now I have, and the error is solved.

Ah, I see that xorg-fonts-misc is an optional dependency, so I guess this makes sense. Thank you!

@lmat: do you have xorg-fonts-misc installed?

lmat commented on 2019-11-18 22:01

sxlqck; says "sxlock: error: could not find font. Try using a full description." I don't have many fonts installed, so I'm guessing it wants one I don't have.

I see this was discussed at the end of 2018. Maybe the font requirement has changed?

That was fast! Thanks a lot!

Fixed, thanks.

Hi! Thanks for having packaged sxlock :) Shouldn't xorg-font-misc come as optdepends, as sxlock's default font is absent from Arch without it? Thanks again!

Ah, thanks for answering! Indeed, it makes sense now...

Hi kyak, I don't think it is generally useful because there is no way to let the service know which user is currently logged in. See

Hi lahwaacz,

Do you think it makes sense to package the .service file as well to let the system lock your X session on hibernation or suspend? It won't hurt anyone, but will help those wanting just to enable this service, without maintaing it.
