Screensaver not activating

Postby 67GTA » Sat Mar 08, 2008 10:11 pm

I can't get the screensaver to activate. I found a post on Ubuntu forums about adding

Code: Select all

Option         "DPMS"
to xorg.conf. It worked for Kubuntu (same screensaver bug), but not for Mint. I have never figured out what is causing it. Is there a way to activate one of the screensavers from the terminal to check for errors?

Well, I installed xscreensaver and got the screen to blank after the set time, but no screensaver.
