set up the same as it was in 10.0. If I test it, it works fine, but it
just never comes on. Anyone else experienced this problem since
migrating

Hi,
yes, i had this problem as well.

After installing 2 fresh 10.1 (a Desktop (nVidia), a laptop (ATI)), it was OK.

After updating all recommended packages via ZEN, i started having this problem: no screensaver.


Yes.......be sure you have the latest video driver installed if NVidia or
ATI, and have used Smart and updated as of yesterday so you get the latest KDE files.

And there, after tweaking the recommended packages, i did notice one thing:

the update of the kdebase package seems to be the culprit.


When upgrading (YAST, ZEN, smart...):
kdebase3-3.5.1-69
to
kdebase3-3.5.1-69.15

i lost my screensaver.

I think I'm completely up to date on updates. As far as a Video driver, I'm
using (and have been for a long time) an old Radeon VE. Hard to believe
that all of a sudden it's causing a screen saver problem.

I wonder how much people is affected with the above recommended update, but at this time, i rolled back to the kdebase3-3.5.1-69 and the screensavers are back again.

Both with nVidia and ATI.

Since then i do not install them. Anyway, this is a personnal choice, as there might have good reasons to upgrade that KDE essential package.

But with the .15, couldn't find a way to have the screensavers (unless using xscreensaver)


What i find strange is to had this problem on 2 PCs, and no threads about it. (OK, i didn't start, either :-)

But still, i would like to upgrade kdebase3 and have all running fine...



Regards,
PatrickM
