A modern version of i3lock with color functionality and other features.

i3lock-color in action

NEW: Official Discord server at https://discord.gg/FzVPghyDt2

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.

Many little improvements have been made to i3lock over time:

  • 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 an image (JPG or PNG), which will be displayed while your screen is locked. Note that i3lock is not an image manipulation software. If you need to resize the image to fill the screen, you can use something like ImageMagick combined wih xdpyinfo:
    convert image.jpg -resize $(xdpyinfo | grep dimensions | sed -r 's/^[^0-9]*([0-9]+x[0-9]+).*$/\1/') RGB:- | i3lock --raw $(xdpyinfo | grep dimensions | sed -r 's/^[^0-9]*([0-9]+x[0-9]+).*$/\1/'):rgb --image /dev/stdin
    
  • You can specify whether i3lock should bell upon a wrong password.
  • i3lock uses PAM and therefore is compatible with LDAP etc. On OpenBSD, i3lock uses the bsd_auth(3) framework.

Additional features in i3lock-color

You can also specify additional options, as detailed in the manpage. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Color options for:
    • Verification ring
    • Interior ring color
    • Ring interior line color
    • Key highlight color
    • Backspace highlight color
    • Text colors for most/all strings
    • Outline colors
    • Changing all of the above depending on PAM's authentication status
  • Blurring the current screen and using that as the lock background
  • Showing a clock in the indicator
  • Refreshing on a timer, instead of on each keypress
  • Positioning the various UI elements
  • Changing the ring radius and thickness, as well as text size
  • Options for passwordless auth, removing modkey indicator
  • Passing through media keys
  • A new bar indicator, which replaces the ring indicator with its own set of options
    • An experimental thread for driving the redraw ticks, so that things like the bar/clock still update when PAM is blocking
  • Any other feature you want (add it yourself through a PR or make a feature request issue!)

Dependencies

The following dependencies will need to be installed for a successful build, depending on your OS/distro.

Arch Linux

  • autoconf
  • cairo
  • fontconfig
  • gcc
  • libev
  • libjpeg-turbo
  • libxinerama
  • libxkbcommon-x11
  • libxrandr
  • pam
  • pkgconf
  • xcb-util-image
  • xcb-util-xrm

Debian

Run this command to install all dependencies:

sudo apt install autoconf gcc make pkg-config libpam0g-dev libcairo2-dev libfontconfig1-dev libxcb-composite0-dev libev-dev libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-xkb-dev libxcb-xinerama0-dev libxcb-randr0-dev libxcb-image0-dev libxcb-util0-dev libxcb-xrm-dev libxkbcommon-dev libxkbcommon-x11-dev libjpeg-dev

If you still see missing packages during build after installing all of these dependencies, try following the steps here.

Fedora

Run this command to install all dependencies:

sudo dnf install -y autoconf automake cairo-devel fontconfig gcc libev-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel libXinerama libxkbcommon-devel libxkbcommon-x11-devel libXrandr pam-devel pkgconf xcb-util-image-devel xcb-util-xrm-devel

Ubuntu 18/20.04 LTS

Run this command to install all dependencies:

sudo apt install autoconf gcc make pkg-config libpam0g-dev libcairo2-dev libfontconfig1-dev libxcb-composite0-dev libev-dev libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-xkb-dev libxcb-xinerama0-dev libxcb-randr0-dev libxcb-image0-dev libxcb-util-dev libxcb-xrm-dev libxkbcommon-dev libxkbcommon-x11-dev libjpeg-dev

Building i3lock-color

Before you build - check and see if there's a packaged version available for your distro (there usually is, either in a community repo/PPA).

If you want to build a non-debug version, you should tag your build before configuring.

For example: git tag -f "git-$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)" will add a tag with the short commit ID, which will be used for the version info.

i3lock-color uses GNU autotools for building.

To build/install i3lock-color, first install the dependencies listed above, then clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/Raymo111/i3lock-color.git
cd i3lock-color

To build without installing, run:

./build.sh

To build AND install, run:

./install-i3lock-color.sh

You may choose to modify the script based on your needs/OS/distro.
