x11-ssh-askpass- description + notes

x11-ssh-askpass is a lightweight passphrase dialog for OpenSSH or other open variants of SSH. It is a useful alternative to the contributed gnome-ssh-askpass bundled with OpenSSH, as x11-ssh-askpass only requires the stock X11 libraries for its user interface.

This program can be customized through the usual X mechanisms, and several different app-defaults files are included demonstrating various looks. The x11-ssh-askpass home page has more information.

This product installs its X application default files in /usr/freeware/lib/X11/app-defaults, which is not on the default X search path. There are also several ways to extend your X search path. The XUSERFILESEARCHPATH, XAPPLRESDIR, XFILESEARCHPATH, and XENVIRONMENT environment variables all affect resource file loading. The easiest methods are to either create a NetHack symlink in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults or to add code similar to this to your startup scripts:

(The line wrapping above is for clarity; you can remove it and any extra whitespace. If XUSERFILESEARCHPATH is already set we append the new directories separated by a colon, otherwise we simply set it to the new colon-separated list.)
