Password Protect


Hey all,

I am wondering if this is possible to do. Basically I want my GNU/Linux system to lock when the screensaver comes on which is easy enough to setup.
Instead of having to enter my password I want it to just go to the desktop with no need to enter password given that I have my usb pen in a usb socket on the computer.


I just got this crazy idea: KUbuntu is Ubuntu with KDE instead of Gnome, XUbuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of Gnome... why not ScreenUbuntu with a nicely tweaked screen (text window manager, don't ask...) configuration? Add in a window manager like ratpoison, evilwm or maybe ion (need to think about which one) and put a lot of work in LaTeX support for all of Ubuntu (esp with non-western languages and stuff...).
