      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Screen Saver doesn't work in 2009 Spriing Gnome

Recommended Posts

I just did a new install of of Spring 2009 Gnome. Everything is working well with the exception of the Screensaver. I am able to test each screensaver and they work. However when the system invokes a Screensaver, I just get a blank screen. It seems to put my monitor in standby. I also have "lock screen" enabled, and that does not work either.


I confirmed thw screensaver doesn't work with compized enabled or disabled.


When the screensaver is invoked, it actually cuts the signal to the monitor as if in powersave mode. I have lock screen enabled, but it never asks me for my password.I have power settings at "Never". I didn't have this problem with KDE Cooker, Mint 7 or Suse 11.2 64bit.
