Termlock description


Termlock project blanks a curses compatible character terminal (e.g. xterm, eterm, PuTTY, konsole, dtterm, etc ...) and locks it. To unlock the terminal a password must be entered. The password, or rather the password hash, is stored in ~/.termlock.

Basically it's like a password protected screensaver for character terminals. Written in pure Python it should be immediately usable on any machine with Python and curses (or a compatible library such as ncurses) installed.

Usage:

termlock [-p | --password]

The password switch prompts the user for a password (which must be confirmed) and uses this to create the ~/.termlock hash file.

To lock the screen simply call termlock with no options. If no ~/.termlock file can be found then an error prompting the user to create it will be displayed

Install:

Termlock uses the standard Python distribution utilities. So it should just be a case of uncompressing the archive and running:

./setup.py install

Obviously the user running this must have sufficient permissions to create a file in the install directory.. Acheron Development - Publisher Page of Termlock - Downloadplex.com.
