LM 13 screensaver help [SOLVED]

Post by Bryan88 »

is it possible to open and change the screensaver settings from the terminal in LM 13 Maya (I think it's the xfce 32 bit version). I have read about the screensaver issues, but even if I just select screensaver from the menu my system freezes and nothing will get it back. Thanks.

Ok, I deserve a telling off for being useless. Type screensaver into the terminal, it tells you to type xscreensaver, then xscreensaver-demo, and then you can fix it.
