NAME¶vlock-plugins - plugin support for vlock
DESCRIPTION¶If vlock-main(8) is compiled with plugin support its default features are very limited: it can only lock the current session and ask for authenticiaton. However it is possible to extend this functions through plugins. These plugins are loaded when vlock-main starts and can provide hooks that are called at certain points during the lifetime of the vlock-main process.
DEFAULT PLUGINS¶The following plugins are provided when installing vlock with default options:
- This plugin locks all sessions by disabling console switching. It is also loaded when giving the -a,--all option to vlock(1).
- This plugin switches to a new virtual console before disabling console switching through the "all" plugin. It is also loaded when giving the -n,--new option to vlock(1).
- Linux only. This plugin disables the Linux SysRQ mechanism before the console switching is locked by the "all" plugin. It is also loaded when giving the -s,--disable-sysrq option to vlock(1).
ADDITIONAL PLUGINS¶The following plugins are only available if explicitly selected at build time:
- This plugin runs a random libcaca screensaver when the screen is locked.
WRITING PLUGINS¶For information about writing plugins see the PLUGINS file in the vlock source distribution.
