xscreensaver is now incompatible with GDM, and that was more of a problem with me (it was not possible to switch user/new login from a locked screen).
I installed gnome-screensaver and uninstalled xscreensaver. The script starts gnome-screensaver if it cannot find xscreensaver, so that is now OK.
The gnome-screensaver incompatibility was easily worked around by using xautolock to start gnome-screensaver
- Code: Select all
xautolock -time 5 -locker "gnome-screensaver-command --lock"
and add it to XFCE' autostart config
The only real issue is that because the GUI does not let you edit autostart entries, I have to delete the xautolock entry and add it again if I change my mind about how long it should start the screensaver after.
