Hello, currently there's no way to lock the screen from the "Logout..."
dialog (lxsession-logout). As all the user account logout options are
already there, it would be good to have a "Lock Screen" action in the
lxsession-logout dialog.

I use lxsession for my session management, and had to create a .desktop
launcher to run this very simple action. I still find it very annoying
that this button is not in the dialog.

There is a desktop-agnostic way to run that, that is, running `xdg-
screensaver lock` which should lock the screen using whatever
screensaver you have running (tested with xscreensaver and gnome-
screensaver).

Please add this button to the dialog, or let me know if you think it
should not be there.

Thanks
