lock the screen when the machine suspends.

Synopsis

xscreensaver-systemd

Description

The xscreensaver-systemd program is a helper program to integrate xscreensaver with systemd(1). When run from ~/.xsession or equivalent, this will:

1:

Lock the screen before the system goes to sleep (using xscreensaver-command -suspend).

2:

Ensure the XScreenSaver password dialog is shown after the system is resumed (using xscreensaver-command -deactivate).

This is implemented using inhibitor locks; sd-bus(3) is used for DBUS communication.

Bugs

Uses libsystemd.
