Just refreshed my system again to duplicate the problem - and I can't! It must have been something on my end, apologies!

I do not have this problem.
What's the output of `ls -l pkg/physlock/usr/bin/physlock' after running makepkg? What's the output of `ls -l /usr/bin/physlock' after installing?

Hi, I think there is a problem with the PKGBUILD.

When installing with makepkg, and trying to run physlock, I get the message "physlock: must be root". It can not be run as a user.

You must manually 'make' and 'sudo make install' for the package to work properly - that's not kosher!

You're too fast, danmilon. You could have at least gave me like 10 minutes to also update my own AUR package...

Version 0.4.5 is out.
See here

Thanks trickyelf. Version 0.4.4 fixes this.

The binary should be moved out of /usr/sbin.

ber_t commented on 2012-09-13 20:08

Kind of late, but the systemd issue is resolved in version 0.4.3.

I'll try to find the time to add a log facility to physlock, so I can get more information if you're willing to help me out.

Can you please file bug reports on github? They're much nicer to work with.

I've found recently that now and again when trying to unlock my session, I hit Enter and it just goes down to the next line; it does not say "username's password:". If I type my password at this point, it is being shown while I type! So it's not working properly. I have no choice but to kill my computer. Sorry I'm not sure what logs would be useful to you.
