CentOS 5 :: Using KDE Screensaver Application In Gnome On Startup?

Feb 11, 2010

I am trying to get the KDE Media screen saver working in GNOME. Is there a way to use kde's screensaver program in gnome on startup, instead of gnome's screen saver program? Basically, I am trying to disable gnome's screensaver, and load kde's program in its place at gnome startup.

CentOS 5 :: Set A Startup Application After GNOME Login?

Sep 16, 2011

Centos 5.6 - I'm trying to lock the screen immediately after successful gnome user login. My steps...

System > Preferences > More Preferences > Sessions > Startup Programs tab > Add

I've tried the following...

gnome-screensaver-command --lock
/usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command --lock

Neither of these seem to work from the Sessions gui. Although from terminal I can run gnome-screensaver-command --lock with no problems.

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

Fedora :: Run A "Gnome Startup Application" From A Different Directory ?

Jun 14, 2011

Using the System->Preferences->"Gnome Startup Applications" interface, is it possible to run a program from an arbitrary directory?

Example:

I want to run a script: /home/user/directory/script.py

It has dependencies (right term?) in the directory it's in, so if I run "python /home/user/directory/script.py" I get an error.

Is there any thing I could type into the "Command" text box to get this script to run?

Fedora :: Gnome-screensaver Not Activating

Dec 11, 2010

I'm running Fedora 12 and the last couple days I have noticed my screensaver will not start anymore. I did a yum update a few days ago don't know if there is a connection between the two. I've just started to Google the topic. Found different culprits ranging from dbus problems to buggy code.

I'm using a x86_64 PC running kernel 2.6.32.23-170.fc12.x86_64. My Gnome version is 2.28.2. The Gnome-screensaver version is 2.28.3-1.fc12.x86_64.

General :: GNOME Screensaver Widgets

Apr 10, 2010

Is there a way to add widgets to a Gnome screensaver? I think this can be done with KDE 4, but I've never liked KDE very much. I'm a programmer and comfortable with writing code if needed.

I'd like to be able to:

See the weather and forecast
Control Rhythmbox
Use a flash card widget for reviewing musical concepts

The reason I want these on the screensaver is that I have login restrictions. I would like to be able to do a very limited subset of activities without having to log in.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-screensaver Won't Work

Oct 17, 2010

I wanted to get a screensaver as my background so I installed xscreensaver didn't work out to the way I wanted to so I removed it apt-get remove xscreensaver then it asked for some other packages to be removed so I did apt-get autoremove xscreensaver was still there working instead of gnome-screensaver so I did a command search to find folders of xscreensaver and remove them whereis xscreensaver and it did remove them, but gnome-screensaver still doesn't start up.

I've tried this command gnome-Message: screensaver-command --activate but I get this error: Message: Screensaver is not running!

I've tried googling for a way to start gnome-screensaver in terminal but no joy, anyone know how to get this to start.

Ubuntu :: Removing Gnome Screensaver

Mar 12, 2011

The Gnome Screensaver preferences window is freezing my desktop. I went into synaptic and tried to remove it (to use xscreensaver instead). But synaptic, in removing gnome-screensaver package, wanted to ADD a bunch of packages, lots of KDE stuff (which I don't want). Is there any way around this? If not, is there a way to reset the gnome-screensaver config file (whatever it is) so that it doesn't freeze on startup? This problem arose after I selected a particular screensaver in the gui window.

Ubuntu :: Replace Gnome-screensaver With Xscreensaver?

May 12, 2010

Although xscreensaver is much better and liked by many users, the Ubuntu devs replaced it with gnome-screensaver simply cause -

1) It's integrates better with the gnome-desktop.
2) It follows release cycles of Gnome.

Since the devs and admins won't listen, we users have to clean their **** up and this is the howto - In Ubuntu, the gnome-screensaver is running; but xscreensaver is better, so we need to replace it. The gnome-screensaver runs as a daemon...removing this gnome-screensaver package will remove this executable also -

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Security Vulnerability?

Aug 26, 2010

I noticed that when typing in your password after locking the screen or a screensaver, the program focussed behind it is able to catch the input...

This sounds like a huge security risk to me, is there anyone who can test this? (Only noticed with game in wine, perhaps you need low level xorg access)

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Does Not Accept Password

Dec 20, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 10.10 box authenticating Users against an LDAP server. User authentication works fine - ssh, console or Gnome.

The only place it has an issue is when the gnome-screensaver is activated and locks the computer. When I try to enter the correct password at this point I get these error in the logs;

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Locks Up Display

Dec 25, 2010

Specifications:
Dell PoweEdge 1600SC
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256MB PCI graphics adaptor
Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"
Linux 2.6.31-22-generic #69-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 24 08:51:08 UTC 2010 i686
ATI fglrx drivers
Set up for dual-head display using two Princeton 19" monitors
Using the Gnome desktop and screensaver

At some point, I suspect since the last kernel upgrade, I've begun experiencing a problem when the screen locks: I tap a key on the keyboard and the monitors wake up, but I get no "unlock" dialog. I can usually Ctrl-Alt-F1, login and gracefully reboot the system, but sometimes I have to hit hard reset. For now I've disabled the screensaver in "System -> Preferences -> screensaver" (I assume that'll stop the problem), but that's not an optimal solution.

Programming :: Create PyGTK Gnome Screensaver?

Dec 15, 2010

I have created a PyGTK app (a binary clock) that I would like to turn into a screensaver. I added the .desktop file to /usr/share/applications/screensavers/ but all I get when I select it is a black screen. On the GnomeScreensaver FAQ (here) it says to use a gsthemewindow as the toplevel window, but the libraries given are in C. Is there any way to:Import this C library to get access to this toplevel window, Convert this GTK+ C library to PyGTK, or use a pygtk app as a screensaver in some other way?

Fedora :: Create Gnome Screensaver From Video File

Feb 28, 2009

I was wondering how to create a GNOME screensaver from a video file? I don't really care what video format the screensaver creator supports because I can always transcode the video with ffmpeg or mencoder. I also, don't care if the creator uses proprietary formats such as mpeg, mpeg4, avi, etc. I do however want the program to create an installable screensaver.

General :: Is It Safe To Lock The Screen With The Gnome-screensaver?

Mar 8, 2011

USB driver bug exposed as "Linux plug&pwn" or this link.Two choices [GNOME, Fedora 14]:

1 - use the gnome-screensaver

2 - use the "switch user" function [gnome menu -> log out -> switch user]

So the question is: which one is the safer method to lock the screen, if a user leaves the pc? Is it true, that using the [2] method is safer?Why do i think this? - The gnome-screensaver is just a "process", it could be killed. But if you use the log out/switch user function, it's "something else". Using the "switch user" function, could there be a problem like with the gnome-screensaver? Could someone "kill a process" and presto...the lock is removed?Could the GDM [??] "login windows process" [e.g.: a picture of it] get killed and the "lock" gets owned?

p.s.: if the [2] method is safer, then how can i put an icon on the GNOME panel, to launch the "switch user" action by 1 click?

Ubuntu :: Gnome-screensaver Freezes When Click Unlock?

Mar 3, 2011

I am on Ubuntu 10.04, and I think I have had this problem since I installed it.
When I type my password into gnome-screensaver and click "Unlock," all the buttons become disabled and the cursor turns into the "busy" look. I have to go into one of the virtual terminals and do "killall gnome-screensaver." This happens maybe 75% of the time when the screen locks.

Also, this last week or two there is a new problem where the gnome-screensaver covers only part of the screen and I can still see and use most of the desktop.

Ubuntu :: Old Gnome Background Appears When Coming Out Of Screensaver?

May 25, 2011

Everytime I unlock my screen in KDE from the screensaver the background for the Gnome interface momentarily appears before the KDE plasma workspace returns. It only appears for a second and, sure, I can live with it but I wondered if there is a way to fix it and why it is happening in the first place? I initially installed ubuntu 10.4 then installed kubuntu through the package manager and have since upgraded to 10.10 and now 11.4. I think this problem has been here since install of kubuntu

Ubuntu Installation :: Wrong Configured Gnome-screensaver (black Screen)?

Feb 24, 2010

all I wanted to get was the "rss-glx"-package as additional screensavers. I am not proud of the results:So I used the Synaptic tool, and since that time the gnome-screensaver shows a black screen instead of any GL-animation in the preview-windows (the small and the big one). The simple screensavers still work (e.g. the Gnome feets).I propably made it worse when trying to uninstall gnome-screensaver and installing xscreensaverxscreensaver crashed on each preview (if the screensaver was installed) and printed an "exited abnormally" (yellow lines on a black screen).Then I was trying to get the original state back - without any "rss-glx".Still not succeeding, the GL-screensavers show nothing except a black screen (e.g. AntSpotLight).So what do I have to do to get back the original state (or to run rss-glx)

Ubuntu :: Run Script On GNOME Startup Without Gnome Session Manager

I'm currently building a ubuntu distro and would like to run a script on GNOME startup. I've read about doing it through the session manager but I have to do it through chroot so I'll need to set it up as a terminal command. Is there a way to add an item to the Session Manager from terminal or, even better, a directory where I can put the script so it will run on start?

CentOS 5 :: Location Of Screensaver Xml Config File?

May 21, 2009

For security reasons I need to ensure all of my users screensaver is set to come on after 10 minutes of inactivity. My thought was to find the screensaver config file, modify a setting in the file to 10 minutes and change ownership of the file to be root (so the user can't undo my changes either in the file or via the gui). However, I can't find the screensaver config file to do this. I'm running Centos 5.2. Anyone know where I can find the screensaver config file?
