    11.10 screen saver

    I can't find the screen saver. I don't use the lock. Do I have to turn on the lock to get a screen saver? I want my ant. Wish he had sound like a clicking.

    Click your name on the panel, go to System Settings, then screensaver.

    Hi Johnny3,

    From what I can see there IS no screensaver as such in 11.10. It seems a little surprising to me, but I guess maybe in line with power saving ideas, maybe they decided that a blank screen was better than a screensaver? I'm not sure.

    I looked by clicking the little 'gear' next to my name on the top panel . . . system settings . . . screen.

    Found this little thread in launchpad too: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...uestion/169946

    Really? I've only used unity with 11.04, so I guess things have changed.

    It's not a Unity thing, it's a Gnome 3 thing. There is no screensaver for Gnome 3 (other than blanking the screen), although there is no-going discussion about creating one.

    I did and upgrade. Did you do and upgrade or fresh install. Thinks a fresh install might help?

    Hi Johnny3,

    A fresh install won't help. thatguruguy mentioned that as of now there is no 'screensaver' as we know it in this version. With any luck, maybe one will become available in the software centre in the coming weeks and months?

    Please forgive this old man. I am not leaning Ubuntu as fast I would like. Found this.
