Is there a way go identify the name of which screensaver was last playing an xscreensaver session? A log or a variable of which screensaver played last in xscreensaver, in a scriptfile on the system? If you have it set to cycle or random.
I want to get rid of the xscreensaver config file in my home .xscreensaver. I read in man xscreensaver, that:
Options to xscreensaver are stored in one of two places: in a .xscreensaver file in
your home directory; or in the X resource database. If the
.xscreensaver file exists, it overrides any settings in the resource database
I am new in this, I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) I uninstalled gnome screensaver and got Xscreensaver working almost perfect. The only problem I am having is when my laptop is running Xscreensaver for more than 5 minutes key strokes or touch pad are not recognized so I have to hard reset my laptop to be able to work because no matter what I do Xscreensaver do not come off....
I find it very annoying that xscreensaver sometimes helpfully starts while I'm playing Urban Terror, and was wondering if there is a better way to solve this than making some script to run Urban Terror which kills xscreensaver first.
My system is Arch Linux, with xscreensaver 5.22.
Flyingwindows is intended for xscreensaver but it wouldn't compile. Before getting into that, on my Ubuntu 12.04, every existing xscreensaver file seems to have a binary in /usr/lib/xscreensaver and an xml file in /usr/share/screensaver/config. There's no xml file to be seen after untarring.
Here's what I did:
Copied the flyingwindows-0.2 folder into the /usr/share/xscreensaver directory.
I just discovered that xscreensaver is not functional with the lockscreen button in F17/GNOME 3.4.1. I wanted to make sure of this so I re-installed gnome-screensaver. The lockscreen button did operate correctly then. But since I want to use xscreensaver the question arises. Can the lockscreen button on the panel be made to operate when xscreensaver is installed?
