Installer & meta-package for the nwg-shell project: a GTK3-based shell for sway and Hyprland Wayland compositors

Screen locker: gtklock

The shell uses Jovan Lanik’s gtklock as the default locker in the ‘Idle & Lock screen’ settings. We add a random image background (local or from unsplash.com), and (optionally) a media player control window over the lock screen.
