NAME

x11-ssh-askpass - an X11-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH

SYNOPSIS

x11-ssh-askpass [options] [label]

DESCRIPTION

x11-ssh-askpass is an X11-based pass-phrase dialog for use with OpenSSH. It is intended to be called from the ssh-add1 program and not invoked directly.

x11-ssh-askpass supports most standard Toolkit command line arguments, with the exception of -geometry -borderwidth -iconic -rv and -title See X(1).

If exactly one non-option argument is provided on the command line, it is displayed in the dialog instead of the default label. If the argument contains newline characters ('\n'), each line of text is displayed on a separate line in the dialog.

The features of x11-ssh-askpass are as follows:

Configurable via the standard X resource mechanisms
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults , ~/.Xdefaults , xrdb(1), etc.
Requires only stock X11 libraries (libXt, libX11, libSM, libICE).
Can be configured to grab the keyboard and/or pointer (grabs the
keyboard by default, not the pointer).

The user interface is somewhat different than most password/pass-phrase dialogs and more similar to the X11-based pass-phrase dialog that accompanies the regular SSH distribution. Instead of a text field that fills with asterisks or some other character as the user enters the pass-phrase, a series of LED-like areas light up one-by-one with each pass-phrase character entered, beginning from the left-hand edge of the dialog. When they reach the right-hand edge, they go dark one-by-one again, and so on. This gives the user feedback that pass-phrase characters have been entered, but does not provide onlookers with a cue as to the length of the pass-phrase.

Pressing the `OK' button accepts the pass-phrase (even if it is empty), which is printed on the standard output, and the dialog exits with a status of zero (success). Pressing the `Cancel' button discards the pass-phrase, and the dialog exits with non-zero status.

The following keystrokes work as expected:

Bq Backspace
Bq Delete
Erase previous character
Bq Control+U
Bq Control+X
Erase entire pass-phrase
Bq Enter
Bq Control+M
Bq Control+J
Accept pass-phrase (OK)
Bq Escape
Discard pass-phrase (Cancel)

RESOURCES

The following resources are used to customize the application globally:
grabKeyboard ( class GrabKeyboard
specifies if the application should grab the keyboard.
Default value:
``True''
grabPointer ( class GrabPointer
specifies if the application should grab the pointer.
Default value:
``False . ''
grabServer ( class GrabServer
specifies if the application should grab the server.
Default value:
``False . ''
inputTimeout ( class InputTimeout
the number of seconds
x11-ssh-askpass should wait for a key or button press before it gives up and exits. A timeout of ``0'' means wait forever.
Default value:
``0''
defaultXResolution ( class DefaultXResolution
the number of pixels per unit length that horizontal
spacing and width values are intended for. If the actual horizontal (x) resolution of the X server is significantly greater or less than this value, portions of the dialog, indicator, and button widgets are stretched or shrunk horizontally to take the difference into account. The value is a positive integer, followed by a slash ( / and a one- or two-character unit abbreviation. Valid units are inches ( in or i and meters ( m )
Default value:
``75/in'' (75 pixels per inch).
defaultYResolution ( class DefaultYResolution
the number of pixels per unit length that vertical
spacing and height values are intended for. If the actual vertical (y) resolution of the X server is significantly greater or less than this value, portions of the dialog, indicator, and button widgets are stretched or shrunk vertically to take the difference into account. Valid values are the same as for defaultXResolution above.
Default value:
``75/in'' (75 pixels per inch).
xResolutionFuzz ( class XResolutionFuzz
the range of
``fuzz'' around the value of defaultXResolution beyond which some widgets will be stretched or shrunk horizontally to fit the current actual horizontal resolution. Valid values are the same as for defaultXResolution For example, if the default X resolution is ``75/in'' and the X resolution fuzz is ``50/in'' then widgets won't be scaled horizontally unless the actual horizontal resolution is less than 25 pixels per inch or greater than 125 pixels per inch.
Default value:
``20/in'' (20 pixels per inch).
yResolutionFuzz ( class YResolutionFuzz
the range of
``fuzz'' around the value of defaultYResolution beyond which some widgets will be stretched or shrunk vertically to fit the current actual vertical resolution. Valid values are the same as for defaultXResolution above.
Default value:
``20/in'' (20 pixels per inch).

The following resources are recognized by the Dialog widget:

title ( class Title
The title of the application as specified to the window manager.
label ( class Label
The label displayed above the led indicators.
font ( class Font
The font to be used to display the label.

The following Resources are recognized by the dialog, button, and indicator widgets and the main widget to customize the 3D appearance (all measurements are in pixels):

foreground ( class Foreground
The foreground color of the widget. This is the text color of the label for buttons and dialog and the color of the active led for the indicator.
background ( class Background
The background color of the widget. In the case of the indicator this is the color of the inactive led.
topShadowColor ( class TopShadowColor
The color used by the sides of the widget exposed to the light (top and left).
bottomShadowColor ( class BottomShadowColor
The color used by the sides of the widget in the shadow (right and bottom).
shadowThickness ( class ShadowTickness
The thickness of the 3D border of the widget.
borderColor ( class BorderColor
The color of the border around the widget.
borderWidth ( class BorderWidth
The width of the border around the widget.
horizontalSpacing ( class HorizontalSpacing
The space to leave on left and right sides of the widget.
verticalSpacing ( class VerticalSpacing
The space to leave on top and bottom sides of the widget.

The following resources are recognized by the indicator widgets:

minimumCount ( class MinimumCount
The minimum number of indicators to display in the dialog.
maximumCount ( class MaximumCount
The maximum number of indicators to display in the dialog.

Each button uses the following resources to customize its label:

label ( class Label
the string to display on the button.
font ( class Font
the font to use for this button label.
