XScreenSave Lock Window

I use xscreensaver not to prevent the pixels from my monitor from burning, but for eye-candy. The only thing that looks ugly is its password window presented during unlocking. But it’s not anymore, after I’ve applied the patch by Alan Swanson. Please refer to his site for instructions on how to patch. To quote him:

So what I’m providing here is a framework for creating built-in themes. (Note that themes are not run time changeable – only one can be included at any time.) The default theme is shown in the first screenshot below and other themes are available. Creating a new theme requires some graphical talent (of which I have none) for the frame and logo and some programming experience if you wish to adjust the interior. Please feel free to submit themes and I will include them on this page.


Happy Theming XSS 😉
