4.10 Conflicts With Screensavers


My screen lock preferences contain the following screensaver displays that can conflict with some frame buffer drivers:  

  • Insecure screen distortion screensaver displays

  • Screensaver displays such as julia and penrose

These screensaver displays occasionally run when I select random screensaver. 


You have an old ~/.xscreensaver file. Perform the following steps:

  1. Remove the ~/.xscreensaver file.

  2. Log out, then log in.

You can deselect screensaver displays that you do not need in the Display Modes tab of the screensaver properties dialog.
