I did install full KDE with Plasma on my notebook according to the

inactivity. I am sure that I enter my password correctly but unlock is

We'll have to investigate the screen unlocking. You appear using the
systemd version of the book. I don't think the problem occurs in the
sysv version but I'll have to double check.
I just encountered exactly the same problem with current sysv version of
BLFS book. I solved the screen unlocking problem adding in /etc/pam.d the
same configuration files as for kde4 => see
I think this should be added in the book.
Thanks Pierre. I can't get to this today, but I'll double check tomorrow
and make the changes.
