Re: xscreensaver on woody
The man page has some specific info on xdm and gdm but nothing on wdm.
I'm no guru but my suggestion is if you don't have some reason that you
need a gui login screen, get rid of it, and just use startx to start X.
Then you can just put the command xsreensaver in your gnome control
panel startup programs. In fact that may work without removing wdm.
It worked for me. I had to run xsreensaver-demo and unselect all the
screensavers that won't work with my non-3d graphics card and then I was
To remove wdm use dselect or apt-get remove wdm. Then I'd check to make
sure there wasn't a wdm script in /etc/init.d. If there is use
update-rc.d wdm remove. May need to throw a -f in there.
