Hi

You can use a alternative screensaver like xscreensaver but gnome-screensaver itself doesn't offer much configuration in this release. Perhaps for the next release.

Re: Screensaver? gnome?

Hello.

just installed FC15 and also installed a bunch of screensavers - x, fedora, gnome etc. however, i have no clue how to invoke the program. there's no settings icon or some short cut in my a/c or general settings.

any help is appreciated.

thx.

I have uninstalled gnome-screensaver and have installed xscreensaver in its place. I have a screensaver icon under All and Other menu lists.

You can also edit/open xscreensaver by opening a terminal and entering:
Code:
xscreensaver-demo
hope this helps.

Gnome doesn't natively come with screensavers, I guess they just like a black screen. I think KDE might have some, though.
