Hi there. I’m not sure i 'm picked right subforum form my question but need HELP.
How to properly autostart installed xscreensaver on my Manjaro KDE Plasma (x11) ???!!!
I put it in AutoStart with the parameter in Arguments xscreensaver --no-splash but the screensaver doesn’t load with the system, I changed the nosplash parameter in several different versions but nothing happens. . .
incorrect… in order to run xscreensaver, you need to disable the screen blanking and monitor power management nside of plasma… otherwise they will clash with each other.
I am to assume you installed xscreensaver from pamac or similar? Then in startup and shutdown click add application and add xscreensaver. edit the properties and add -no-splash to the arguments.
I use xscreensaver and let it control all the powermgmt. I also created a keyboard shortcut to xscreensaver-command -lock to meta-L (ie the windows-L) to lock immediately. run xscreensaver-demo to set options. If you need to start the daemon you can do it from there, The daemon has to be running in order to run the screensavers.
I have read everything you sent/wrote, but I don’t have more than half of those folders and files, especially on this newest Manjaro KDE installation, so I can’t manage it on proper way, unfortunately
I was thought it’s all well done but i still have a problem i don’t know how to solve but the post is closed for posting
My XScreenSaver daemon don’t autostarting
I have got a message “Daemon is not running on display 0” or something similar and i have run it manually from Konsole to start ‘xscreensaver-demo’ and run Daemon manually from that point.
ALEA IACTA EST !!!
My XscreenSaver autostart daemon finally worked!
The problem was that I wasn’t seeing any error messages after starting the daemon from the console. The main and only error was something like ‘The C language library is missing’ or something similar. After that I loaded C from regional settings and had to remove the ‘&’ parameter so now xscreensaver starts automatically and works like a charm.
Here is output:
