[OPEN] need advice on a piece of software.

and they say kiss and look at all of this variation of the same thing. So what is a good candidate for xlock, would PAM authentication work w/o setting anything up, and the one with cycling screen savers?
What is the benefit of PAM over anything else?
I don't what to install one at a time until I get the one I want.

Code: Select all

[userx@arcomeo ~]$ yay -Ss xlock
aur/xlockless 1.0-1 (+0 0.00%)
    A simple screen locker
aur/csxlock-git 1.2.r1.gdd085a8-1 (+1 0.01%)
    Simple screen locker utility for X, fork of sxlock. Uses PAM authentication, suid needed (tty lock).
aur/xlockmore-blank 5.47-1 (+1 0.00%)
    screen saver / locker for the X Window System - blank only
aur/xlockmore-nomotif 5.46-2 (+1 0.00%)
    screen saver / locker for the X Window System - no motif
aur/sxlock-git 1.1.r15.g76ac317-1 (+24 0.18%)
    Simple screen locker utility for X, fork of sflock. Uses PAM authentication, no suid needed.
community/xlockmore 5.56-2 (1.0 MiB 3.6 MiB)
    screen saver / locker for the X Window System
Thanks
