slock-blur - simple screen locker
Super fast and highly stable blur version of the simple screen locker utility for X. It takes a screenshot of your desktop and blurs it and remain there until you enter your password.
In order to build slock you need the Xlib header files.
DO NOT PANIC!
- This blur effect does not crash
- This blur effect does not need OpenGL
- This blur effect only relies on Xlib and your CPU for rendering
- This blur effect is multi-threaded (It takes less that 30ms for bluring whole desktop of a 10inch Intel Atom Laptop)
Edit config.mk to match your local setup (slock is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).
Afterwards enter the following command to build and install slock (if necessary as root):
make clean install
Simply invoke the 'slock' command. To get out of it, enter your password. .
