i3lock is a simple screen locker like slock. After starting it, you will see a white screen (you can configure the color/an image). You can return to your screen by entering your password.
- i3lock forks, so you can combine it with an alias to suspend to RAM (run "i3lock && echo mem > /sys/power/state" to get a locked screen after waking up your computer from suspend to RAM)
- You can specify either a background color or a PNG image which will be displayed while your screen is locked.
- You can specify whether i3lock should bell upon a wrong password.
- i3lock uses PAM and therefore is compatible with LDAP etc.
Many distributions include i3lock as a (potentially optional) dependency of the i3 package (see Downloads). You can also look for the specific package in your distribution, e.g. on Debian and Debian-based distributions:
sudo apt-get install i3lock
