The kscreensaver-xsavers package handles the classic xscreen savers and
the xscreensaver daemon does not run under KDE.  The OpenGL savers are
available as well.

I've noticed that running an OpenGL screen saver under KDE causes the
screen to flash as though there is some contention between KDE and the
GL saver's handling of the root display.  The 2D savers don't exhibit
this effect.  When I run xscreensaver from IceWM the display is clear
and crisp with no flashing.  I assume that the problem is not hardware
or Xorg related.
