I'm not using KDE... I'm using Enlightenment as my window manager.
Doesn't seem to matter anway. I cannot get xscreensaver to do what it
If I run xscreensaver manually and then try lock the screen, I always get
host1:myuser:~> xscreensaver-command -lock
xscreensaver-command: no screensaver is running on display :0.0
I thought I would try adding it to the xinitrc... maybe it has to be
/usr/bin/xscreensaver -display :0.0 &
I tried this in my user's .xinitrc and as root. Didn't help either
way, same problem.
Ok.. then I tried adding it to the gdm.conf file... my system is using gdm...
I added this line...
BackgroundProgram=xscreensaver -display :0.0 -no-splash
Didn't help.. I still get the same error.
I don't understand what I'm doing wrong?
