Question Linux Questions

What is the command to lock the desktop? Under Gnome/KDE its a menu option, but it isn't part of enlightenment. And I'm not smart enough to figure out how the Gnome/KDE lock works.

--edit-- I can't type for shit today

Thats what I've been doing. But as security paranoid as I am I was wanting a more secure (protected by password) way. Guess I'll scrounge around on the gnome/kde sites for more info.

Thought I would ask incase someone else has ran into this same problem.
