xscreensaver and KDE


like we all know, KDE 3 brings his own screensavers, so you cant easily use xscreensaver.

i have switched off KDE Screensavers, and i can start xscreensaver with 'xscreensaver-demo' command, but i wonder how can i run it every time i start my KDE session.

Thank you.

make a shell script, put it in $HOME/.kde/Autostart, and change the permissions so it is executable.


xscreensaver -nosplash

exit 0
