how to set xscreensaver as default
I just enjoy xscreensaver, but I like to have it as default, when f12 start. I am not very deep in details of Fedora, but still, can anybody guide me to set this as default ?
Thanks !

What I did was created a file called xscreensaver.desktop with the following contents :


#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
[Desktop Entry]
The file has to be executable. ie

-rwxr--r-- 1 cliff cliff 118 2010-01-11 13:49 xscreensaver.desktop*
I'm running KDE4 and stored the file at

Every time I log in, what is in the Autostart directory gets run. Of course you have to have xscreensaver installed. Not sure how you autostart on other desktops. If you are not running KDE, you may have to find that out. Hope this helps.
