Information xlockmore 5.33 in the repo
xlockmore is an enhanced version of xlock.

It locks the screen till the user enters the login password at the keyboard. While xlock is running, all new xserver connections are refused. The mouse cursor is turned off. The screen is blanked.

If a key or a mouse button is pressed then the user is prompted for the password of the user who started xlock. If the correct password is typed, then the screen is unlocked and the X server is restored.


NOTE : The xlock tool supports many visual effects, but the default configuration is "blank" ... that means blank screen without any visual effects.
You can list all modes with xlock --help, then activate different modes with xlock -mode xxxxx where xxxxx is the chosen mode name (example: xlock -mode matrix).

The xlock tool is reachable from the icewm top level menu in two forms ("Screen Saver" & "Screen Lock" mode).
