[ubuntu] xscreensaver

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Tried an upgrade for the first time, went to 12.10 from 12.04. xscreensaver is not working correctly, it comes on but only after showing a blank screen for several minutes, also I am unable to access xscreensaver from the applications. I click the icon and the screen just goes back to desktop? Tried uninstall, reinstall ... purge then reinstall?? Any ideas how I might access the controls? Thanks. (Hardware)
