Question How can I lock screen under fvwm?


Just a quick question, how can I lock screen under fvwm of Opensue? There is nothing like this in the 'Quit FVWM' menu. Cheers.

I don't know about the specifics of opensuse, but you should be able to use a program like xscreensaver. Have a look in your package manager.

Cheers,

You can add a new entry to the menu to run xlock, xlockmore, xcreensaver or whatever you prefer. It's not different from any other programs. You can as well bind a key or a button on your panel or whatever you prefer.
