    Re: Ant w/Headlight Screen Saver?

    Hey Irv, I've got it working, kinda, but I got a question for ya. I had to reinstall xscreensaver because it got uninstalled and even after I reinstalled it, gnome screensaver would still activate and would appear in preferences when I went in there.

    Tried to uninstall gnome again but it said it wasn't there?? So, I reinstalled it so I could uninstall it again and still I got the gnome screensaver even though it was uninstalled??
    Interesting though that when I reinstalled gnome it only installed one file? Same thing when I uninstalled it?

    So, I went into gnome in preferences and set it to 2 hours before activation and now xscreensaver comes up but over time it will come up a second time over top of the original??

    What did you find when you did your install?

    Thanks

    Xscreensaver is running OK. I have my laptop set to go into screensaver after 10 minutes and when I close the lid it go into suspend.

    Do you have screensaver listed twice in Preferences?

    Thanks

    If you mean startup preferences, I only have it once.

    No not startup. I'm running Mate 1.4 so my Preferences may look different from yours if you're running unity. In mine I have two Screensaver icons in the Preferences menu. One lists the ant screensaver and the other doesn't.
