With 20'000 students including 9000 graduates and about 50 research
laboratories, each year, believe me
that you will not get any support for anything from the admin of the machines.
I already asked or tried, and to get any support for similar things,
such as installation of a software on a specific machine.
You get your Linux box, and if you wanna use a specific program you
always can compile to your local.
Permission fix for it is likely not "possible / thinkable". Although
on most machines, there is xscreensaver, but why not using slock?
The slock app is though not installed.
