xlock locks the X server till the user enters his/her password at the keyboard. While xlock is running, all new server connections are refused. The screen saver is disabled. The mouse cursor is turned off. The screen is blanked and a changing pattern is put on the screen. If a key or a mouse button is pressed then the user is prompted for the password of the user who started xlock. xlockmore extends the standard xlock program by adding many more modes that are highly configurable.
Note that under XFree86, the X11 implementation for Linux, Control- Alt-Backspace will defeat the locking mechanism and return your console back unless you put "DontZap" in your XF86Config file. 'xdm' returns to the login prompt. Control-Alt-F1 (among others) will defeat locking mechanism with virtual terminals, so make sure that you are not logged onto any virtual consoles.
This version is built with additional OpenGL/MesaGL and XPM modes. The companion package xlockmore does not contain them.
xlockmore for Debian -------------------- xlockmore-gl and NIS -------------------- Since xlockmore-gl is linked with Mesa and NIS requires us to be setuid root, this means that currently xlockmore-gl must not be used with NIS. xlockmore still works though.
