Screensaver wont't start

Thu Feb 26, 2009 7:14 am
The KDE screensaver won't start. Xscreensaver works, and xset works, but not KDE screensaver. This is on a FreeBSD 7.1 system. I don't have a problem on another FreeBSD system, nor on an Arch laptop. I can activate the screensaver with "qdbus org.kde.krunner /ScreenSaver SetActive true", so that much works. But it just doesn't activate normally. I'm not seeing any errors on the console.

Here is my current .kde4/share/config/kscreensaverrc:
[ScreenSaver]
ActionBottomLeft=0
ActionBottomRight=0
ActionTopLeft=0
ActionTopRight=0
Enabled=true
Lock=false
LockGrace=60000
PlasmaEnabled=false
Priority=19
Saver=glmatrix.desktop
Timeout=60

I've spent too much time trying to fix this, and I'm giving up. Anyone with a clue please let me know.

I use Widgets on Screensaver as well. My config file:
[ScreenSaver]
Enabled=true
Lock=false
LockGrace=60000
PlasmaEnabled=true
Timeout=60

You might want to remove those "Action" lines.

I did that, no such luck. I think I'm going to switch to plain old XScreensaver until I get the time to look at this closer.
