.. If I do
SELECT program_name, port_path, cool_graduation FROM
Freebsd_Available_Ports WHERE uses = 'screensaver' ORDER BY
I get more than one line ;)
Personally xscreensaver is too heavy for me. I use xautolock to fire
slock (both in ports and share the first position on the query). In my
fluxbox startup file (similar on other window managers) I have:
xautolock -time 1 -locker slock &
Where 1 is 1 minute and slock blocks X until enter user password. You
can execute slock directly
to lock X window.
