Description Yaron Minsky 2001-04-27 11:33:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; rv:0.8.1+)

For some reason, on one of my machines, xscreensaver always sets the
screensaver to random, no matter what I do with gnomecc.  However, when I
set gnomecc to "no screensaver", that does work.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Note that I can't reproduce this on my other machines.  So I'm not sure
what the cause is.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-27 11:46:06 EDT
Do you have a ~/.xscreensaver file?
Comment 2 Yaron Minsky 2001-04-27 13:45:04 EDT
Yes indeed, and deleting appears to eliminate the problem.  Perhaps gnomecc
should check for this?  I actually thought I had tried that...

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-27 15:10:44 EDT
Hm, possibly. In any case, it's not really an xscreensaver problem.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-27 15:11:39 EDT
(although one could argue that you should use either xscreensaver-demo or
the control-center capplet, but not both.)
Comment 5 Jonathan Blandford 2001-08-10 18:06:12 EDT
Fixed in current xscreensaver, according to Bill.
