Description of problem:
Using cinnamon 2.0 as desktop environment. Screensaver doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa cinnamon\* nemo\* cjs muffin |sort
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. check that cinnamon-screensaver is running
2. send the activate command (cinnamon-screensaver-command -a)
Actual results: nothing happens
Expected results: screensaver should be activated and screen locked
No errors in dmesg.
If I run "cinnamon-screensaver --debug" and then run "cinnamon-screensaver-command -a" I can verify that nothing seems to reach the daemon.

I wonder is gnome-screensaver is blocking it somehow, can you remove gnome-screensaver and try again.
I don't have gnome-screensaver (or xscreensaver, ...) running so I don't think that's it.
I do see the gnome-screensaver errors in .xession-errors but there's no gnome-screensaver running when I'm at the shell and the problem exists even if I start cinnamon-screensaver only then...
I have the following processes that seem bound to gnome. Should I replace them somehow? Can you give hints?
/usr/bin/gnome-keyring-daemon --daemonize --login
Don't quite understand it because of what I've written before but I've removed gnome-shell (and deps) and gnome-screensaver and the problem disappeared.
Considering this I have no reason to keep this bug opened...
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
