Screen Saver? Yes!

Screen Saver? Yes!

So, a while back I found a screensaver which is meant for the command line. It is called tss. The latest version is 0.8.1, and it is looking pretty cool.

Under screen 4.0 or higher, there is a command called idle which is set in seconds. By default, it uses screen’s built in lockscreen function, but if you define the environment variable LOCKPGR, then you can call something else. I have it call a the following script:

#!/bin/bash

tss -r
exec vlock -a

This will lock my screen after a set time, and give me a nice thing to look at.
