Gnome screen saver turned off

Carl Spitzer-4
Suse 10.0 under gnome.
Suddenly the screen savers do not run even if I click to a specific one
for testing.  Under Gnome after a minute, setting is 4 minutes, I get a
black screen not a screensaver.  


What config file do I hack to turn them back on?

Hi Carl,

I seem to recall experiencing this problem in GNOME on 10.0. I eventually
discovered the problem was contention between the two installed and activated
by default screensavers: one GNOME, the other a generic x-screensaver.

I can't recall the label they used for the gnome 'control center' or 'desktop
settings' icon, but it should be located in the 'System' menu off your panel.
It's the one where you can open up gnome-sessions, adjust window behaviors,
set your default fonts, etc.

hth & regards,

Carl

Tried that it did not work.  Does not even let me change from one minute
to four.  Also no editing of schemeas in the gnome configuration editor.
So how do I turn these things on.

Tried that turned down start time to a minute and still no screen saver.
Here is my Dot xscreensaver file.  BTW screen savers work in KDE.
What am I doing wrong??

Hi Carl,

I could be wrong, but I thought the solution was to pick one screensaver
program to use and 'turn off' the other one. Isn't that what was discussed in
the longer thread I referred you to?

No the problem is the screen savers do not come on in Gnome.  I followed
the directions from the links in the earlier email and removed
gnome-screensaver.  I set the triger time very low as the dot
xscreensaver file shows.  No screen saver comes up.  I have it set for
random.
