Description of problem:
in kontrol center, testing screensavers works just fine, but locking the screen just results in a blank screen, no matter what screensaver is actually enabled...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.enable screensaver in KDE
Actual Results: blank screen
Expected Results: screensaver running
I have this problem as well, and did not happen in limbo. I am now running
Null with updated packages and the problem still exists. I am running a
GeForce2 GTS with the standard Xfree86 nv driver. If that matters. However
xscreensaver in gnome works fine, and the KDE screensaver as noted above tests
fine as well, but does not intialize. I have tried many of the included
screensavers in KDE and they are all affected. This occurs regardless of the
"Require Password" box being checked.
It's a bug in kdebase, which is now fixed in 3.0.3-14 or newer. You will find it
in the next rawhide release.
