Have just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10, but I found that my xscreensaver package no longer works, which is a pity as it is excellent.
Is there a way to make xscreensaver work in Ubuntu 12.10 (and if so how), or is there another similar package available anyone knows about?
Back when I used Ubuntu, every upgrade uninstalled xscreensaver and installed gnome-screensaver, and I would immediately remove gnome-screensaver and install xscreensaver. It was like a little inaugural dance every six months.
Hello frankbell, I guess without humerus we'd be armless.
I have managed to install the xscreensaver program through the terminal. But it seems to have problems with the gnome daemon screensaver. I cannot find the gnome daemon screensaver in "installed programs", so is there any way to disable or remove this? Thanks.
