NAME

       vlock-plugins - plugin support for vlock

DESCRIPTION

       If  vlock-main(8)  is compiled with plugin support its default features
       are very limited: it can only lock the  current  session  and  ask  for
       authenticiaton.   However  it  is  possible  to  extend  this functions
       through plugins.  These plugins are loaded when vlock-main  starts  and
       can provide hooks that are called at certain points during the lifetime
       of the vlock-main process.

DEFAULT PLUGINS

       The following plugins are provided when installing vlock  with  default
       options:

       all

              This  plugin  locks all sessions by disabling console switching.
              It is also loaded when giving the -a,--all option to vlock(1).

       new

              This plugin switches to a new virtual console  before  disabling
              console  switching  through the "all" plugin.  It is also loaded
              when giving the -n,--new option to vlock(1).

       nosysrq

              Linux only.  This plugin  disables  the  Linux  SysRQ  mechanism
              before  the console switching is locked by the "all" plugin.  It
              is also loaded when  giving  the  -s,--disable-sysrq  option  to
              vlock(1).

ADDITIONAL PLUGINS

       The  following  plugins  are  only available if explicitely selected at
       build time:

       caca

              This plugin runs a random libcaca screensaver when the screen is
              locked.
