NAME

xscreensaver-systemd - 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.
