 +====== To change the screen saver mode ======
 +
 +Our lab linux machines use an inhouse setup to do screen locking and auto-logout. ​ If you want a screen saver mode other than ??random?? here is what you do:
 +
 +  - Look at the manual page for xlock and pick a mode you like.
 +  - Create a file in your home directory called .lockmode containing the name of the mode you want.
 +
 +For example, if I wanted the mode called "​space"​ which gives a moving star field I could get it by typing the following in a terminal:
 +
 +  cat > ~/.lockmode
 +  space
 +``Cntrl+D``
