Lock a screen after inactivity with CDE

By Ivan the Terrible ·
I?m running Solaris 8 with a CDE environment and would like the screen to lock after a specific period of inactivity.

I would like this to be machine wide rather than user based.

I think you can edit the file dt.resources in $HOME/.dt/sessions/current and add the entries:

dtsession*extension.lockTimeout: 120
dtsession*extension.saverTimeout: 15

But this would only apply for that user, not machine wide. I have quite a number of Sun machines to apply this function to!

Any help would be much grateful.

Check this file :
/usr/dt/app-defaults/$LANG/Dtsession

Try putting it in /etc/dt/config/$LANG/sys.resources.

If this file is not present you can create it or else copy from /usr/dt/config/$LANG/

I have not used it but I have read it on the net when I was trying to do the same in HP-UX
