xfce and gnome-screensaver confused

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...

Re: xfce screensaver setting?

There is no menu any where I see. I had it on mint13 but I don't see it for 14 on xfce. I thought it used gnome or mate screensaver also but it's nowhere to be found.

I was wondering why Thomas's English muffins don't have a larger diameter so I can actually get them out of the toaster without burning or electrocuting myself. I shouldn't need to unplug my toaster and stick a knife in my damn toaster to get out something designed to go in a toaster. I think bill g...
