[hadn't worn my newbie hat lately... so I thought I'd try it on.]
Is there a way to run X via startx and prevent someone from switching
back to the console that started it and pressing Ctrl-C, without using
DontVTSwitch in my xorg.conf file?
I would like to be able to use multiple virtual consoles. But do not
like the idea of someone switching back to *my* virtual console...
killing X and having my account available to them. This way I could
lock my session via xscreensaver, and walk away. Then someone else
could login and use the machine... just not *my* account.
I had envisioned something like a script that did the following:
Yet vlock does not like this at all. I was hoping to background
startx... and then lock the virtual console. :)
Is there anything that might accomplish something similar?
