KDE xscreensaver not available to normal users


Hi all

KDE Control Center setting of screensaver does not load available screensavers to choose.

If I launch from root it works fine and all available screensavers are loaded into Control Center screensaver window. This is what it shows when launching from command line:

Code:
[katrina@STI ~]$ sudo kcmshell screensaver
kdeinit: Launched DCOPServer, pid = 4534 result = 0
DCOP: register 'anonymous-4534' -> number of clients is now 1
DCOP: unregister 'anonymous-4534'
kdeinit: Launched KLauncher, pid = 4538 result = 0
DCOP: register 'klauncher' -> number of clients is now 1
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kdeinit: Can't connect to the X Server.
kdeinit: Might not terminate at end of session.
DCOP: new daemon klauncher
DCOP: register 'kded' -> number of clients is now 1
DCOP: unregister 'kded'
kdeinit: Launched KDED, pid = 4539 result = 0
DCOP: register 'kded' -> number of clients is now 1
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

kded: cannot connect to X server :0.0
DCOP: register 'anonymous-4539' -> number of clients is now 2
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-4539' to 'kded'
DCOP: unregister 'kded'
DCOP: unregister 'anonymous-4539'
kdeinit: PID 4539 terminated.
DCOP: register 'kcmshell-4531' -> number of clients is now 1
DCOP:  'kcmshell-4531' now known as 'kcmshell_screensaver'
DCOP: register 'KCModuleProxy-screensaver' -> number of clients is now 2
This launches KDE Controll Center screensaver module. It then says 'Loading' then after a sec all the available screensavers are available to choose.

If I do the same but just as user it launches the screensaver module but never says 'loading' and there are no screensavers to choose.

Code:
[katrina@STI ~]$ kcmshell screensaver
DCOPServer : slotTerminate() -> sending terminateKDE signal.
kdeinit: terminate KDE.
DCOP: unregister 'klauncher'
Everything else works fine on Control Center except for screensavers under each user. Root works fine for screen savers. Permissons for each xscreensaver files and folders is 755 (owner root, group root) which seems to be the same as everything else under /usr.

I also tried deleting ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc and restarted but still no cigar. Must be something in the /home folder I have set wrong. Is there a way to set the screensaver from the command prompt? Might show me some eroor messages maybe.

Thanks for any help on this

I just tried adding a user.

[katrina@STI ~]$ sudo adduser test

I logged in as test user and the screensaver were not available.

I then tried normal user login but under Gnome. I have Gnome and KDE installed but everyone uses KDE. All screensavers were available under Gnome Preferences and could changed and set.

Must be something in the /home directory.

Thanks

Gimmee
