    Screen Saver Problem


    Yet another interesting problem on my Fedora Core 3 Laptop.

    I think this comes down to permissions, as screen savers will run under my root account, but will not run under the regular user account.

    Does anyone know how to fix this HOPEFULLY simple problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone?

    Jesus! Am I really the only person that has ever had these problems with F.C.3?

    This is a really strange problem, and I have never heard of a screensaver group.

    Your normal user can't use any screensaver whatsoever?

    This is a known problem.
    Basically, the default xscreensaver package doesn't work well in KDE.
    I'm not sure if this is fixed yet, since I never use KDE...
    KDE does work with the one from FC2 though. So you could remove your existing xscreensaver package and install the one from FC2:
