xscreensaver lock screen with Ctrl-Alt-Del


Hi folks,

As I was using XFCE as my DE, I remembered pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del would call xscreensaver out to lock the screen, but now in openbox, how can I restore this feature? Do I need some special code hacks?

Thanks.

Assuming openbox doesn't use Ctrl-Alt-Del for anything important, use keybindings:
http://icculus.org/openbox/docs.php?...48#keybindings
Although I don't have openbox, the following code should work:
<keybind key="C-A-Delete">
<action name="Execute"><execute>xscreensaver</execute></action>
</keybind>
