#55 i3-Spin is configured to call i3lock via xss-lock, but xss-lock package is not installed by default.

Description of problem:
The Fedora i3 Spin supplies a default i3 configuration, that uses xss-lock to call i3lock. It suggests to use loginctl lock-session to lock the screen. xss-lock is not installed though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora-i3-Live-x86_64-34-1.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedoras i3 Spin from the official iso
2. execute loginctl lock-session

Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
i3lock locks the screen

Additional info:
none


I believe this can be fixed as follows: we install xss-lock as part of the i3 spin and modify the custom Fedora i3 config to execute xss-lock --transfer-sleep-lock -- i3lock --nofork on startup.
Then loginctl lock-session does what one expects from it, but it adds a dependency on xss-lock.

Any thoughts?
