the text that shows up in the blank screen of xscreensaver

hi, is there someone who knows what im talkin about?

I have my xscreensaver set to black screen, and when a window pops up... like if someone sends me an instant message when the screen saver is on, a text will show up in the black screen. The problem is that it goes away after a few seconds and I need to make it stay there.

Sounds like you're talking about the System Notifications. I've never seen a setting to enable them to stay permenantly on display.

I think you have to customize the dbus-notification daemon (e.g., this one).
