  5. [SOLVED] Re: Remove individual xscreensavers from list?

    You should have a .xscreensaver file in your home directory, that lists all the screensavers that your system thinks it has. Simply delete the lines corresponding to the savers you've deleted.

    [ubuntu] Re: HDD being used all the time

    Strange. It's in the universe repository, so it should be available for installation. :confused:

    [ubuntu] Re: HDD being used all the time

    You can install a program called iotop (in the repositories) which is like top for disk usage - it tells you which programs are using the hard disk. That could give you some clues.

    Re: xscreensaver missing fonts

    So that should mean you can edit your .xscreensaver file and adjust the command line for the relevant savers to make them use a sensible font. I haven't tried it yet to confirm though.
