Edit: this is how I would do it if this was Gnome 2; I'm not sure how things are with Gnome 3/Gnome Shell, as I don't use it.
Thanks for the follow-up, I ran it in Terminal and it told me it wasn't installed, and then how to install it, which I did. However, it's not showing up in the drop down "launcher"? I see there are two "main menu" items, in prefs in one "screensaver" is checked, in the other one, which must be what shows up in the drop down menu to left (I have the toolbar on the top) . . . it's not there. There is a command when I 2x click on it, perhaps to launch it from terminal??? something like "gnome-screensaver preferences"???? Don't know if I'm supposed run that in Term . . . . I rebooted after the installation in Terminal . . . guess I could check in synaptic as you suggest, to see if it is showing as installed . . . I'm at work, so focus is not 100% on the floating feet issue . . . . : - ))))
Edit: Just checked and synaptic shows screensaver installed . . . .
