problem with kde screensaver?


i have kde 3.3,

when I set the screen saver, and click test, it works. but every time the screen switches(automatically, after the set time limit) the screen just goes blank.

i dont know if im missing somethign here. or if there is anywhere else i should check?

I thought at first maybe power saving settings, but its not in there.

Im using fc3 2.6.9-1.667

Ive heard of this being a permissions problem, check /usr/libexec/xscreensaver and make sure you have r-x permissions (chmod 755 file)

that particular file didnt exist...

so i did a find / | grep xscreensaver and found the xscreensaver in

/usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver

and all the screen savers in there.

the permissions where already 755

so for poops and giggles i chmod 777 and chown

still no luck

thanks for the input...

The main problem with the KDE screensaver is that it exists. Set your KDE screensaver to NOT activate, and use xscreensaver instead.
