View Full Version : [SOLVED] Screensaver

April 29th, 2010, 12:53 PM
I have been running Mythbuntu 0.22 for a couple of months now having moved away from Windows/GBPVR which I was becoming increasingly frustrated with (mainly due to codec issues etc). Since converting I have had very little in the way of problems despite the steep learning curve of being new to Linux as well as Mythtv. There is however one issue that I haven't been able to solve - I can't seem to get the screen saver to cut in which is frustrating since I have to make sure that the TV gets switched off to avoid burn in problems. I haven't been able to find any other posts with this issue, most seemed to cover the opposite one of the screensaver cutting in when watching video.

Any ideas?:confused:

Many thanks, thats fixed it. For anyone else with the same problem, all I did was install xscreensaver and that fixed it, no need to uninstall gnome screensaver, this is looked after by xscreensaver setup.

Thanks again.:)
