Thread: Where The Heck Is The Screensaver (KDE)??

  1. #1

    Default Where The Heck Is The Screensaver (KDE)??

    Running OpenSUSE 11.1 with KDE4, can't for the life of me find the screensaver settings, and before someone says "login screen", I don't have one, single user machine.

    You'd think screensaver settings would be under "Desktop Settings", but that's too easy, eh?

    Ideas?

    For me, screensavers can be found in start>Configure Desktop>Desktop. On the left hand panel, you will find Screen Saver.

    Not quite where it was, but I finally found it - KDE4 "Start" is quite a mess, the desktop settings are really buried, copying it to my Desktop as I write.

    Thanks.

    KDE4 is very similar to Vista, you have to do more steps now to do simple things.

    I know it's an old thread, but I hit it tonight while looking for the same answer. Here it is...

    Click "Start Button | Configure Desktop"

    Under the "Hardware" section, click "Display and Monitor"

    On the left pane, there is a "Screen Saver" section. Click it.

    There you go. It's hidden in an obfuscated area under a plain white wrapper.

    Welcome new openSUSE poster and thanks for the help. I am thinking that 2008 is pretty old for sure, but perhaps they might still look in here. One never knows for sure.

    Thank You for using openSUSE,

    in KDE 4.10 (so I presume the standard 12.3 KDE install) it is now called screen locker
    but your instructions on how to get there still apply.
