If you type gnome-screensaver at the console does it start?
Comment 5 sangu 2007-06-10 23:01:03 EDT
Booting
Launch gnome-terminal
$ ps ax | grep gnome-screensaver
 3170 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep gnome-screensaver
$ gnome-screensaver

***MEMORY-WARNING***: gnome-screensaver[3177]: GSlice: g_thread_init() must be
called before all other GLib functions; memory corruption due to late invocation
of g_thread_init() has been detected; this program is likely to crash, leak or
unexpectedly abort soon...

$ ps ax | grep gnome-screensaver
 3178 ?        Ss     0:00 gnome-screensaver
 3182 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep gnome-screensaver

gnome-screensaver starts well at the console.
Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2007-06-11 05:10:39 EDT
Could you please set the following GConf key to true:
/apps/gnome_settings_daemon/screensaver/show_startup_errors

and let us know of any errors on session startup?

$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/screensaver/show_startup_errors
[...]
true

/apps/gnome_settings_daemon/screensaver/show_startup_errors' default value is true.

> let us know of any errors on session startup? 
No.

Comment 8 Bastien Nocera 2007-06-11 05:33:28 EDT
So you get a warning in the startup logs, and gnome-screensaver isn't running
after a little while (ie. no output in "ps aux | grep gnome-screensaver")?

If so, that would mean that gnome-screensaver is crashing, and it's a problem
with gnome-screensaver.

Error message dialog doesn't appear in the startup.

Is gnome-screensaver crashing? I don't know that.  I know that
gnome-screensaver doesn't luanch in startup.

After installing 2.19.4-3.fc8 ( see also bug 244843 ), error dialog  shows

"There was an error starting up the screensaver
Failed to execute child process "gnome-screensaver (No such file or directory)
Screensaver functionality will not work in this session."

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver
gnome-screensaver-2.19.1.1-1.fc8
