Re: cinnamon-screensaver does not activate

Well, I spoke too soon... Still have an issue: instead of getting my screensaver activated after xx minutes, I get my desktop wallpaper with a clock on the left side. Not my fancy-shmancy matrix code screensaver :( Interestingly enough I have two Screensaver icons in the main menu: [*] cinnamon-scre...

Re: cinnamon-screensaver does not activate

Well... Even though I got the screensaver app to start and selected my preferred screensaver,
it will NOT launch. Meaning - after set xx minutes the screen just changes to my background with a clock,
NOT displaying the screensaver...

Anyone w/ input on that?

Re: cinnamon-screensaver does not activate

I found that I could go into Synaptic Package Manager and install 'xscreensaver' which is almost the exact functionality that used to be in Ubuntu/Mint, then set your timings and whether to lock the screen in Menu>Preferences>Screensaver.

P.S. wallpapoz 0.5 WORKS on LM 15 64bit MATE. I can pop a screenshot if need be. HOWEVER: 1) the STANDALONE works; install WILL NOT WORK.
