Sorry, there’s really no support for this. It’s just a courtesy to other Mac users. Plus, I am not a programmerâ€¦;-)
When people “Switch” to the Mac, they often look for a one-keystroke or one-key-combo screen locker.
And they’re often disappointed to find that the operating system only provides a two-click solution: add the Keychain Access menu item to the menubar, and then use “Lock Screen”.
…but it doesn’t work under Mac OS X for Intel-based hardware. Until now…because I got frustrated with myself for not having done it earlier…
Presenting the Intel-compatible re-compile of LockTight.
Menno’s source code has been recompiled with XCode on an Intel based Macintosh, and contains all the original source code and licensing information as required.
