Slimlock: Unholy Screen Locker,Slimlock is a simple screen locker that borrows the interface of SLiM. It automatically reads your SLiM configuration to lock your screen with the same theme you use to log in.fairly simple X screenlocker that looks like SLiM.
It s lightweight, but not too much. You could try gnome-screensaver, but that would be silly if you don t have the rest of gnome installed. There are other lighter screen lockers, for instance slock and xscreensaver. But xscreensaver is too gaudy for me and slock is too minimal. Here are screenshots comparing slock and slimlock.
Yes, that s right. Slock is just a black screen that goes away if you enter the password correctly. It s kind of cool but it makes me uncomfortable. I could picture someone coming along and shutting down my computer because the screen is locked but they think it s frozen.
SLiM is developed and tested mainly under Linux; Form version 1.2.3 onwards FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD are also reported to work.
