This is my own copy of i3lock, consisting of the following tweaks:
- Display changes on key-strokes and escape/backspace.
- Added 12-hour clock to the unlock indicator and periodic updater so time stays relevant.
- The unlock indicator will always be displayed, regardless of state. (Originally it was only shown after initial keypress)
- Command line arguments to customize colors. Each (optional) argument will accept a color in hexadecimal format.
-o colorSpecifies verification color
-w colorSpecifies wrong password/backspace color
-l colorSpecifies default/idle color
- The given colors will be used as-is for the lines and text for their respective states. The colors will automatically be lightened slightly and used with lower opacity (20%) for the circle fill.
- If no colors are specified it defaults to green/red/black for verify/wrong/idle respectively.

i3lock - improved screen locker
i3lock is a simple screen locker like slock. After starting it, you will see a white screen (you can configure the color/an image). You can return to your screen by entering your password.
Many little improvements have been made to i3lock over time:
i3lock forks, so you can combine it with an alias to suspend to RAM (run "i3lock && echo mem > /sys/power/state" to get a locked screen after waking up your computer from suspend to RAM)
You can specify either a background color or a PNG image which will be displayed while your screen is locked.
You can specify whether i3lock should bell upon a wrong password.
i3lock uses PAM and therefore is compatible with LDAP etc. On OpenBSD i3lock uses the bsd_auth(3) framework.
- libxkbcommon >= 0.5.0
- libxkbcommon-x11 >= 0.5.0
Simply invoke the 'i3lock' command. To get out of it, enter your password and press enter.
On OpenBSD the
i3lock binary needs to be setgid
auth to call the
authentication helpers, e.g.
