slock - simple screen locker

The most simple screen locker utility available for X.



Edit to match your local setup (slock is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

In order to build and install slock execute

sudo make clean install

Running slock



Lock X by displaying a black screen and waiting for your input.

Spy Mode

slock -s

Lock X whereas your screen looks unlocked. If a mouse button is hit the screen becomes black and a snapshot of the unwanted user is taken and rendered. In order to use this spy mode you need to have fswebcam installed.

Exit slock

Just enter your password.
