You should probably set user=nobody and group=nobody, so that the display locker has no privileges for better security. The only reason that it doesn't work initially is because Arch calls the no-privilege group nobody, and not nogroup.

"It would be frustrating if you had your caps key on"

Bruh… "setxkbmap -option caps:none"

Then rebind it to open a launcher such as dmenu or rofi. You're welcome.

I've got this error on my Fedora 32 :

No protocol specified
slock: cannot open display

Anyone else as it ? Anyone know how to solve it ? I can't find docs on it

I use slock. It works great for minimal desktop environments that do not provide any screen locking functionality. It is elegant in it's simplicity.

Every video showcasing Suckless software should always have the subtitle: that you have to compile and patch yourself in order to make it usable!

I've been tweaking my debian openbox install and I was actually looking for something like this. Thanks!

Reasons I barely watch your channel (but still support you on Patreon): you're being a meme for months now (with making videos exclusively about i3, Arch, suckless and the sorts) and I barely see anything informational on my part or what you'd think about certain types of distributions or software. Making a livestream with Luke Smith kind of threw me off. No hate, but I want the old DT back :/

well this for some reason reminds me somewhat of i3lock but this is even a little bit more minimal

I used it for some time, but it's too minimal. Now i use: betterscreenlock. User of slock should be nobody with its group.

I'm looking to build a slock fork that blurs a screenshot with ImageMagick. Can't really understand the documentation though
