I have my screensaver set to come on after 5 minutes, but is does not. The power management stuff works because the monitor turns off after
30 minutes. How can I get my screensaver to kick in after 5 minutes? Do I need to put something in my XFConfig file?

I know the screensavers work because I can preview them.

I am running Gnome and 2.4.22 CK sources for my kernel.

Thanks

Tim

Which screensaver is it?

If it is Xscreensaver, you can configure it with the following command line:
Code:

xscreensaver-command -prefs


It allows you to set time-outs etc.

Btw, are you sure the screensaver is actually running in the background?
