sflock - simple feedback screen locker

Simple screen locker utility for X, based on slock. Provides a very basic user feedback.

Requirements

In order to build sflock you need the Xlib header files.

Installation

Arch Linux users can install this package from the AUR(http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=44802).

Manual installation: Edit config.mk to match your local setup (sflock is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install sflock (if necessary as root):

make clean install

Running sflock

Simply invoking the sflock command starts the display locker with default settings.

Custom settings:

-h: toggle the bar.
-f : modify the font.
-c : modify the characters displayed when the user enters his password. This can be a sequence of characters to create a fake password.
