problem with xscreensaver in debian
1. When I enter the command xscreensaver-demo, I receive a warning message saying that "The XScreenSaver daemon doesn't seem to be running on display ":0.0". Launch it now?" I would like to understand what's gone wrong. Can anybody help, please?
2. I've put "xscreensaver &" into my ~/.xsession file. Now it looks like this:
exec emacs &
I'm using xdm to log in, but after the timeout period nothing happens - the screensavers don't get activated. Might this be related to question 1? The .xsession-errors file reports no errors.
Thanks for reading, umk
