NAME

       xtrlock  -  Lock  X  display  until  password supplied, leaving windows
       visible

SYNOPSIS

       xtrlock

DESCRIPTION

       xtrlock locks the X server till the user enters their password  at  the
       keyboard.

       While  xtrlock  is  running, the mouse and keyboard are grabbed and the
       mouse cursor becomes a padlock.  Output displayed by  X  programs,  and
       windows  put  up  by new X clients, continue to be visible, and any new
       output is displayed normally.

       The mouse and keyboard are returned when the user types their password,
       followed  by Enter or Newline.  If an incorrect password is entered the
       bell is sounded.  Pressing Backspace or Delete erases one character  of
       a  password  partially  typed; pressing Escape or Clear clears anything
       that has been entered.

       If too many attempts are made in too short a  time  further  keystrokes
       generate bells and are otherwise ignored until a timeout has expired.

       The  X  server  screen saver continues to operate normally; if it comes
       into operation the display may  be  restored  by  the  usual  means  of
       touching a key (Shift, for example) or the mouse.

OPTIONS, X RESOURCES, CONFIGURATION

       None.

BUGS

       Additional  input  devices  other  than  the keyboard and mouse are not
       disabled.

       The timeouts, bitmaps and mouse cursor colour cannot be modifed.
