       blueproximity - locks/unlocks your desktop tracking a bluetooth device




       blueproximity  helps  you  adding  a  little more security to your desktop.  It does so by
       detecting one of your bluetooth devices, most likely your mobile phone, and keeping  track
       of  its distance. If you move furter than a certain distance from your computer for longer
       than a given time, it automatically locks your  desktop  (or  starts  an  arbitrary  shell
       command).  The  "distance"  must  be  specified  as a measure of bluetooth signal strength
       rather than in meters, but BlueProximity's setup procedure helps with this by showing  you
       an  indicator  of  current  signal strength.  Once away, if you return nearer than a given
       level for a set time your computer unlocks magically without any  interaction  (or  starts
       any other shell command you want).

       Have  a  look  at  the  package documentation in your distribution's doc directory, likely
       /usr/share/doc/blueproximity, to read the  complete  html  manual  or  visit  the  website .


       blueproximity doesn't support any command-line parameter.


       ~/.blueproximity/*.conf  Config files for each profile.
