if you have an X Window Manager (GUI) you need to look into its manual. (KDE/Gnome/...)

What kind of GUI you have? What kind of screen saver do you want to use (a simple background image, an app, or ??) What OS you have? If you wont give us some details we cannot give you any hints.

The most important question is: what kind of GUI you have and you have not replied. Fortunately there is a question you copied and it contains the answer, it is CDE.
here is a tool> http://linuxcommand.org/man_pages/xscreensaver1.html look at the session related to CDE
