    Gnome screensaver settings problem - 12.10

    I recently did a clean install of Ubuntu 12.10, and I followed a post-installation guide for installing xscreensaver. I purged gnome-screensaver, installed the needed xscreensaver files, and wrote a startup script to auto-start xscreensaver with no splash. Everything worked fine, but I didn't like the look of the lockscreen that xscreensaver used. So I reinstalled gnome-screensaver, did a killall of xscreensaver, and changed the startup script to launch gnome-screensaver instead of xscreensaver.

    I'm unable to find the settings for gnome-screensaver. Typing "gnome-screensaver" in the dash yields no results. Typing "screensaver" in the dash only gives me the settings for xscreensaver.

    Here is the result of typing "sudo gnome-screensaver" in the terminal
    Code:
    tim@lappy:~$ sudo gnome-screensaver
    
    ** (gnome-screensaver:20076): WARNING **: Couldn't get presence status: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files
    Here is the original startup script for xscreensaver in /etc/xdg/startup/
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Screensaver
    Type=Application
    Exec=xscreensaver -nosplash
    I would like to know how to get to the gnome-screensaver settings. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    It cant find it because it isn’t there ! the daemon is, but not the application, That is why you have to use xscreensaver ! there is no gnome screensaver application at this time.
