The Screen Savers don't start.  Usually, the screen will
just go blank.  I've tried this with various selection(s)
of screen savers; none of them start.

If I click on "preview" they work, but they wont start

Are you running it as root?  xscreensaver won't work for root.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-03 17:16:59 UTC
it worked on 6.0 by mistake. There was a security update for 6.0
to fix this.
