Projects / ColdSpot


ColdSpot is a simple screen locker for X. When the mouse is left inside the transparent ColdSpot window, a user-specified program is kicked off to lock the screen. It is probably simplest to use with focus follows mouse or sloppy focus, although it should still work with click-to-focus.
