In gnome go to foot--> applications--> desktop preferences--> advanced--> screensaver and set the mode to disable screensaver. To kill it from the terminal; from the command line do

Code:

ps -aux
find the PID of the screensaver and then


Code:

kill numberofPID

However thank you for the terminal command.
