if you type


xgamma -gamma 1.0

("in the dark" so to speak)

does it come back to life?

Adding to F8Target
Comment 2 James 2007-09-14 10:42:11 EDT
It do (with DISPLAY and XAUTHORITY environment variables set).
Comment 3 James 2007-09-14 10:45:08 EDT
[Should probably clarify above that I went through a text-mode console.]
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-09 13:57:29 EDT
Can you try again with current gnome-screensaver packages ? Ray added a patch
that should fix this problem.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-09 13:58:24 EDT
Oh, sorry, I just see that this bug is against F7. 
The fix will be available in F8.
