Is there the possibility to adjust an individual time for automatically device-lock?

If I want to set my Jolla to lock automatically after a few minutes, I have only the choice between: without delay, 5, 10, 30 and 60 minutes. I would rather prefer 15 or 20 minutes, so I'm just wondering, if there is any way (maybe via shell) to set an individual time?

If not, this would be a nice feature for an upcoming update.

From /usr/share/jolla-settings/pages/devicelock/devicelock.qml:

                MenuItem {
                    //% "5 minutes"
                    text: qsTrId("settings_devicelock-me-on5")
                    onClicked: lockingCombobox.setAutomaticLocking("5")

The options are all there as MenuItems. I guess you could edit them.

And of course: You can mess up the system by editing system files, do it at your own risk!

Thank you very much ssahla, that works! Additionally I also changed the function updateIndex(value).

But sure, the possibility to enter an individual time directly in the device-lock menu would be more comfortable.

@Daniel, you are right. What if there was a wheel for time selection, bit like the one used for setting alarms? You could quickly and intuitively "roll" it to any number of minutes.

A wheel for time selection would be a very smart solution and a consequent continuation of Sailfish-Design. At the moment I dream of this and a pull-down-menu entry at the lockscreen for locking the device instantly,
