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?
