    Screen savers don't start


    Neither does power management. I just bought this great new monitor and now I'm just a bit worried about it being on all the time. I have heard it is bad to turn it off and then back on repeatedly, so how can I make the screensavers start or at least power management. Using KDE in Mepis btw.

    It doesn't or not that I could find anyway. They still won't start, should I upgrade KDE? If I need to upgrade, what is involved with that or do I just install it from Kpackage?

    I think there is a package called kscreensaver, you might check to see if that's installed. Otherwise check if xscreensaver is installed. You might be able to configure it in the control panel. I don't use KDE much, so I don't know a whole lot about it.

    check in the kde system monitor if the screensaver daemon is running. it needs to be running in the background.

    It doesn't seem to be running. So how do I get it to run?
