We have a Sun Solaris microsystem, running CDE 1.4, that controls our
Varian Unity/Inova 600 MHz NMR spectrometer. Lately, the Lock Display
feature has been creating woe for me. It no longer recognizes my
password. The only way out of the bind is for me to log in remotely
and issue the command;
kill -9 PID
where PID is the process ID number of /usr/dt/bin/dtsession.
Earlier today, I used my Desktop Controls to turn off Lock Display.
But after being away for 1.5 hours, I came back to find the Display
Now when I try to access the Desktop Controls, the system tells me the
folder specification to Desktop Controls does not exist. Yikes.
