slimlock - unholy screen locker
This is the Frankenstein's monster of screen lockers. I had the horrible idea to graft SLiM and slock together to create the screen locker that should have never been.
Slimlock reads your SLiM config files and uses the same interface. If you use SLiM already, then it should work for you automatically.
Requirements and Building
Requires X11, imlib2, freetype, pam. Change CFGDIR in the makefile to the
directory containing you
slim.conf. As root, install with
