Question Mint Cinnamon Xscreensaver Problem


I have successfully gotten xscreensaver to run at boot by adding to the startup list. The issue I'm having is that an Accessability window loads with the Visual tab open. The command I added to startup was the "xscreensaver -nosplash" command. I can just close the window but would prefer not to have to do this on each boot. Thanks!


I got it fixed! I removed the Accessability from startup applications and xscreensaver starts for me as well. Yay! I kept the nosplash too.

Try changing the command simply to "xscreensaver." That works for me with every desktop I've used, though I don't use Cinnamon currently.

The splash screen disappears after only a few seconds.
