Ubuntu: 12.04 LTS 2 without screensaver?


I don't know if this has to do with xorg-xserver-bug currently ? ( at a friend's notebook )

screensaver resp. xscreensaver are installed but it does not appear in the system-settings as tool - for to be adjusted ?


Open a terminal:

sudo apt-get purge gnome-screensaver    sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-gl-extra xscreensaver-data-extra  

Create an autostart file:

sudo gedit /etc/xdg/autostart/screensaver.desktop  

Copy and paste the following into it:

[Desktop Entry]Name=ScreensaverType=ApplicatonExec=xscreensaver -nosplash  

Now reboot:

sudo reboot
