CentOS 5 :: How To Enable A Screensaver At The Login Screen

May 22, 2009

Does anyone know a way to activate a screensaver at the login screen? I've got about 5 machines here, and I'd really like the ability to just have the screensaver come on after 5 minutes of sitting there with nobody logged in...

Even a way to blank the screen would be nice. However, if we were to blank the screen, I need to ensure that it doesn't do a DPMS blanking, since we use calibrated monitors here, and turning them off sucks.

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..

I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Ubuntu :: Screensaver Does Not Go Away?

Jun 7, 2010

I have recently upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04, and I have the following problem.My computer is set up to start the screensaver and lock the screen after 5 minutes of inactivity and to use a blank screen after 15. Whenever I come back after some moments of inactivity and move the mouse, the screensaver doesn't go away. Instead of having a box whereinput a password, I'm left with a still image of one frame of the screensaver. I can still input the password and press enter to unlock the screen, but it is a bit annoying nevertheless. Moreover this does not happen if the screen is blank: in that case I see the expected box.

How do I set the screensaver in kubuntu 10.10? I've searched the web for help, and everywhere says it's under "desktop" in start | settings, but I can't see an entry for "desktop", only for "desktop settings" which seems to be something completely different (though fun). Pretty much a Linux newbie

Ubuntu :: X64 Screensaver Freezes After A While?

I have Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. Kernel: 2.6.38-8-generic AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250u Processor 750GB HD 8GB RAM. Now, the problem is that when I lock my computer(I have to do this because I have brothers and stuff always trying to sneak on), it freezes after a while. Like, I lock my computer before I go to sleep, and I wake up and it's frozen, and I have to reboot to fix it. The problem is that I host 2 servers on it, and I can't turn it off.

Ubuntu :: Get The F-spot Screensaver Working Under KDE?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm trying to get the f-spot screensaver working under KDE. I found the f-spot-screensaver executable in usr/lib/gnome-screensaver/gnome-screensaver/f-spot-screensaver, and the executable works just fine under KDE when run from the command line. I also found a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/screensavers/f-spot-screensaver.desktop.

I also installed xscreensavers, and they all seem to work just fine, but I can't figure out how to make the f-spot version show up in control panel.

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 Servers :: How To Turn Off Screensaver

Apr 11, 2011

I do not have gnome/gdm installed. I do have fluxbox though. From the command line I start a firefox session, and if I do not use the kybd or mouse after about 10 min. screensaver kicks in.

How to turn off screen saver? I did not have this problem with previous releases , not until I upgraded to the latest 2.6.35-28-generic #49-Ubuntu I believe. The latest OS release installs FF 4.0, I had thought that was the problem. I have removed FF 4.0 and installed 3.6.13 instead and still have the same problem.

Ubuntu :: Screensaver With Specific Picture

Jun 27, 2011

In order to develop an application on Ubuntu, i'm trying to configure the screensaverI get the logo of the application, and I would like to launch the screensaver with the logo (moving or not, it's not important).On windows we can execute a specific file and it run, but i don't find the same command on linux. Some tutorials speak about specific folder on /usr/share/background, and do some settings on gconf-editor.. Does it exist a more easier method ?

Ubuntu :: Picture Screensaver And Odd Results

Jan 5, 2010

A bit back the "Pictures" folder used by the screen saver disappeared. I created a new one, and since I had the files backed up, I put my series of pictures in.But since then in screen saver mode a tremendous variety of pictures are showing up. Some from web pages I have looked at, some from another folder where I store personal fotos, some from pdf files I have looked at, and some I have no idea where they came from... and of course some from my Pictures folder.

This is not a "serious" problem, but I am left very curious as to what happened, or how to correct the situation.... if there is a correction.
