Maybe, the man page of xscreensaver has some guide to setup the screensaver in various desktops
The part about GNOME says:
Code:
       For the better part of a decade, GNOME shipped xscreensaver as-is,  and
       everything  just worked out of the box.  In 2005, however, they decided
       to re-invent the wheel and ship their own replacement for the  xscreen-
       saver daemon called "gnome-screensaver", rather than improving xscreen-
       saver and contributing their changes back.  As a  result,  the  "gnome-
       screensaver" program is insecure, bug-ridden, and missing many features
       of xscreensaver.  You shouldn't use it.

       To replace gnome-screensaver with xscreensaver:

           1: Fully uninstall the gnome-screensaver package.
              sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver
              or possibly
              sudo dpkg -P gnome-screensaver

           2: Launch xscreensaver at login.
              Select "Startup Applications" from the menu (or manually  launch
              "gnome-session-properties") and add "xscreensaver".

              Do  this as your normal user account, not as root.  (This should
              go without saying, because  you  should  never,  ever,  ever  be
              logged in to the graphical desktop as user "root".)

           3: Make GNOME's "Lock Screen" use xscreensaver.
              sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/xscreensaver-command \
                          /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command
              That  doesn't  work  under Unity, though.  Apparently it has its
              own built-in screen locker which is not  gnome-screensaver,  and
              cannot  be  removed,  and yet still manages to be bug-addled and
              insecure.  Keep reinventing that wheel, guys!  (If you have fig-
              ured  out how to replace Unity's locking "feature" with xscreen-
              saver, let me know.)

           4: Turn off Unity's built-in blanking.
              Open "System Settings / Brightness & Lock";
              Un-check "Start Automatically";
              Set "Turn screen off when inactive for" to "Never."

i'm sure you can ADD something to that list, no?

if not (this is entirely possible), then i must say that gnome is simply evil.

btw (sic), please make sure you type commands correctly. your computer does not autocorrect these things.
