Currently i3lock uses the system-auth pam file for authentication, however it should probably be using system-local-login instead as that denotes the login mechanism for local login.

An example is when you want to use a yubikey for local logins. Currently the required pam line has to be inserted into /etc/pam.d/i3lock, as well as /etc/pam.d/system-local-login. The latter should be sufficient for all local logins.


Change the sed line to: sed -i -e 's:login:system-local-login:' i3lock.pam
This task depends upon

Foxboron, this was orphaned when ttoepper retired, and then adopted by anthraxx (but hasn't been updated except to rebuild with a valid signing key)... given all that, I suspect he may be amenable to you co/maintaining it, assuming you're interested. :)
