Setting Screensaver

Setting Screensaver

Post by rcopel.. » Wed, 27 Mar 2002 04:09:46

Hello, I'm having a problem setting the screensaver on my system
and I would like some idea why it's not working correctly.  There
are four users besides root on this system including myself.  I
login as myself, not root.  I used to be able to set the screensaver
to anything I wanted, but now I always get the random screensaver
no matter what I set it to.  If someone could give me some clue
what is happening, I would appreciate it.  Seems like there is a
superuser (root?) who is over-riding my setting somehow and I would
like to understand this mechanism.  Thx.

so that it uses the hyper mode. But when the screensaver active, it
just give me a blink screen. It loads the hyper mode when I type xlock
in xterm. Here is  a part of the XLock file
