Help removing lock?

I'm looking for advice as to how I can remove this old lock from my door. There are no visible screws, and I've tried everything I can think of. Does anyone have any tips or tricks as to how I can get to the screws to remove this old thing?

Until Globalocky checks in, on the inside cover, you see a keyway to the side of the lock. Take a small screw driver and press while turning the lock cover. It may unscrew or click off, exposing the attachment screws for the unit.

turn the key inside counterclockwise until the little slot is exposed and there will be a screw in there to undo. That will loosen the body and allow you to push the lock forward (toward the door edge) and remove the lock. Then you can tighten the rim cylinder retaining screws after aligning the cylinder.

@global: is that an Ideal Security? Haven't seen one of those for ages...does the screw come completely out, or is it captive, I can't remember...

I believe it is captive. It will completely remove for service/replacement, but is generally unnecessary for maintenance.
