KDE 4.10 screensaver shows blank screen!


As I have mentioned in this thread, I have installed the new KDE 4.10 packages, and now I have another problem. When I turn off XScreensaver, and configure KDE's screensaver to display, the screen only blanks, and does not display what it's supposed to. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

What Qt widget style are you using? I got the same when I tried oxygen-transparent. Apparently the screenlocker doesn't take transparency too well, so if your theme used it too, you can try switching to one that doesn't.

I thank you for your input, but I believe I have found what I believe to be the superior solution, albeit not in a way which I would have preferred. Pat pushed some updates to X in slackware-current. After utilizing slackpkg to download and upgrade these files, I found that my installation was totally hosed. X would not start, period. Fortunately, I made an image backup of my root partition (/dev/sda2) using dd, and was able to restore most of what I had lost, just minor stuff. As it turns out, KDE 4.9.5 was in that image, and I know that it does not suffer from the screen locker issue nor blanking. I think I'll stick with this setup until the outstanding bugs in 4.10.x are fixed to my satisfaction.
