NAME
       vlock-plugins - plugin support for vlock

DESCRIPTION
       If vlock-main(8) is compiled with plugin support its default features are very limited: it
       can only lock the current session and ask for authenticiaton.  However it is  possible  to
       extend  this  functions	through plugins.  These plugins are loaded when vlock-main starts
       and can provide hooks that are called at certain points during the lifetime of the  vlock-
       main process.

DEFAULT PLUGINS
       The following plugins are provided when installing vlock with default options:

       all

	      This  plugin  locks all sessions by disabling console switching.	It is also loaded
	      when giving the -a,--all option to vlock(1).

       new

	      This plugin switches to a new virtual console before  disabling  console	switching
	      through  the  "all"  plugin.   It is also loaded when giving the -n,--new option to
	      vlock(1).

       nosysrq

	      Linux only.  This plugin disables the Linux  SysRQ  mechanism  before  the  console
	      switching  is  locked  by  the  "all"  plugin.   It  is also loaded when giving the
	      -s,--disable-sysrq option to vlock(1).

ADDITIONAL PLUGINS
       The following plugins are only available if explicitely selected at build time:

       caca

	      This plugin runs a random libcaca screensaver when the screen is locked.

WRITING PLUGINS
       For information about writing plugins see the PLUGINS file in the vlock	source	distribu-
       tion.
