VLOCK-MAIN(8)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		 VLOCK-MAIN(8)

NAME
       vlock-main - lock current virtual console

SYNOPSIS
       vlock-main [plugins...]

DESCRIPTION
       vlock-main is part of vlock(1), the Virtual Console locking program for
       Linux.  It locks	the current session and	will only exit if the  current
       user  can  authenticate themselves.  The	root user will also be able to
       unlock the session, unless disabled at compile time.  The command  line
       arguments  specify  plugins  that  should be loaded by vlock-main.  See
       vlock-plugins(5)	for more information.

       If plugin support is disabled at	compile	time, the only supported argu-
       ment is "all".

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The  following environment variables can	be used	to change the behavior
       of vlock-main:

       USER

	      If this variable is when vlock-main is run as root (uid 0) vlock
	      locks  the  screen as this user instead of root.	The root pass-
	      word will	still be able to unlock	the session,  unless  disabled
	      at compile time.

       VLOCK_ALL_MESSAGE

	      If this variable is set and all consoles are locked its contents
	      will be used as the locking message instead of the default  mes-
	      sage.

       VLOCK_CURRENT_MESSAGE

	      If  this variable	is set and only	the current consoles is	locked
	      its contents will	be used	as the locking message instead of  the
	      default message.

       VLOCK_MESSAGE

	      If this variable is set its contents will	be used	as the locking
	      message instead of the default.  This overrides the  former  two
	      variables.

       VLOCK_TIMEOUT

	      Set  this	 variable  to  specify	the timeout (in	seconds) after
	      which the	screen saver plugins (if any)  will  be	 invoked.   If
	      this  variable is	unset or set to	an invalid value or 0 no time-
	      out is used.  See	vlock-plugins(5) for  more  information	 about
	      plugins.

       VLOCK_PROMPT_TIMEOUT

	      Set this variable	to specify the amount of time (in seconds) you
	      will have	to enter your password at  the	password  prompt.   If
	      this  variable is	unset or set to	an invalid value or 0 no time-
	      out is used.  Warning: If	this value is too low, you may not  be
	      able to unlock your session.

SIGNALS
       Several	signals	 are  ignored.	vlock-main will	try to exit cleanly if
       SIGTERM is received.
