I'm sure the is a question which has been asked before, but I can't
seem to track down the answer in any FAQ or howto.  How can one
of the screensavers (i.e. xlock or xlockmore) be setup to run
automatically if the mouse doesn't move for a given n length of
time?  I'm running fvwm, and I've looked in the fvwm man page
also to no avail.

  Thanks,
  Sean

I think xautolock is what you want.  Works rather well for me.
Thou I using vtwm rather than fvwm.  But it still should work.

1. screensave blanking doesn't work for TGA server

Hi Folks,

Since I upgraded the TGA server from the experimental one from
the Redhat 4.0 distribution to the XFree86-3.2 version,
the screen does't blank anymore after the screensaver
timeout. What I did is not upgrade the whole X system; only the
server. Do I really have to upgrade the whole system to get the
screensaver blanking working?

Output of xset q:


Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
  auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf
                        fadfffffffdffdff

                        0000000000000000
