F19 Beta Screensaver and lock settings
 
Hi, I have been running F19 beta for a week now with minimal fuss. A major irritation though is that I can not get the screen saver to kick in. When I go to All Settings->Screensaver and Lock Settings I don't get prompted for any options to modify. There are 2 buttons - "return to settings" and "close" where I was expecting a few parameters to set. The upshot of all this is that I can't get the screen to dim, blank or lock so I switch off my monitor when it is not in use.

I logged a bug (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=970309) but as yet noone has had chance to investigate. A couple of things which might assist my investigation:
  • when I do a "ps -ax" should I see some kind of "screensaver" application running?
  • can anyone advise the actual "screensave and lock settings" application? I would like to run this from the command line and see if any errors occur.

Thanks

Any advice on where to find the control center?

Downloaded mate-control-center. Still no screensaver options but power management works now. Sorted
