Syntax

  • lockscreen

Description

Lock this display. Call a screenlock program (/local/bin/lck or /usr/bin/lock or a builtin if no other is available). screen does not accept any command keys until this program terminates. Meanwhile, processes in the windows may continue, as the windows are in the “detached” state. The screenlock program may be changed through the environment variable $LOCKPRG (which must be set in the shell from which screen is started) and is executed with the user's uid and gid.

Warning: When you leave other shells unlocked and you have no password set on screen, the lock is effectively void: one could easily re-attach from an unlocked shell. This feature should rather be called “lockterminal”.

Examples
