freaky screen locking

Filed under: General — kees @ 8:54 pm

This afternoon, for no reason at all, I was annoyed that my music didn’t pause when I locked my screen. So I fixed that. Tonight, I checked my RSS feeds and discovered that Corey did exactly the same thing today.

I think that’s really freaky. Inter-city Open Source Mind-Meld. Only I did mine with xscreensaver and xmms:

xmms –pause
xscreensaver-command lock

What I want now is a way to get xmms to unpause after I unlock my screen. :) I thought of a horrible hack for xscreensaver to do this, but I’m hoping there’s some other way.
