Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193193
xscreensaver-command -time does not work
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:13:26 EDT
Description of problem:
xscreensaver-command -time should return the time since the last
activation/deactivation of the screen saver, instead it errors with a bad status
message. This impacts people who use SGE/N1GE for cyclestealing, and probe for
user activity via the screensaver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run xscreensaver-command -time
bad status format on root window.
XScreenSaver 4.10: screen non-blanked since Thu May 25 15:39:42 2006
It appears that the error condition (type != XA_INTEGER || nitems < 3) is always
being matched, possibly a 64bit int snuck in somewhere?
