xfce and gnome-screensaver confused

Postby minty33 on Fri Mar 01, 2013 6:08 pm

I had another thread on this but I feel it should be in software because the answers don't fit my question.
I installed mint 14 xfce x64. I know it uses gnome-screensaver but there is nothing in settings or any of the menus to configure this. I see no answer anywhere as to how to configure the gnome-screensaver under xfce mint14. Everyone just says it's in settings or whatever but its not they must be using mate and assume it's on xfce but it's not. I know the gnome-screensaver daemon is running but where is the config tool to select a screensaver or time till it starts ect ... how do I get this functionality without resorting to xscreensaver.
Plz help.

If you are wanting to configure the individual screensaver hacks, you can't with gnome-screensaver.

If you are wishing to configure the time before gnome-screensaver activates... I am not sure how to do this as I ripped gnome-screensaver out of my system and installed xscreensaver so that I could configure the individual screensavers.

Mint 17.1 Xfce 4.12.
