Angry Screen saver blocking out programmes


Hi

I am using Mepis 8 and ever since the upgrade I have noticed that the screen saver takes over the screen even if a programme is running. This happens even whether the programme is in a window or the full screen.

Now I am quite sure this did not happen before the OS upgrade when it was underneath the running programme. At the moment the only solution I have is to active the screen saver at something like 120 minutes!

Incidentally I also notice that you cannot not have a screen saver. The minimum is a blank screen.

Do anyone know if it is possible to make the screen saver run in the background? Of course this may be a KDE problem.

False. You can disable the screen saver entirely.
