  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

Summary: Screensaver Initiation Fails, Both Manually & Via
Inactivity Timeout
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Final
Platform: i686
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Applications
AssignedTo: kde-maintainers@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: rschulz@xxxxxxxxx

Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:
Gecko/20100506 SUSE/3.5.10-0.1.2 Firefox/3.5.10

When the screensaver should activate, whether by putting mouse in a "Lock Now"
corner or when the idle activity timer expires, the screen flashes very briefly
but the screensaver does not activate. Nothing appears in any of
~/.xsession-errors, /var/log/Xorg.0.log nor /var/log/messages when this
happens. The symptom occurs with several screensavers, both OpenGL and
non-OpenGL. The screensaver preview thumbnail and the screensaver test mode
both work correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a screensaver (including, optionally, a manual lock corner)
2. Put cursor in lock corner or wait for the idle time-out
Actual Results:
Observe a very brief screen flicker / black band but no screen saver.

Expected Results:
Screen saver should engage.

This is a brand new openSUSE 11.3 installation with KDE 4.
