Screensavers as we know them are no longer included in Gnome 3, but you can install them.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data-extra
And add to Startup Applications like this (press the add button and fill in the fields):
