Thread: Gnome. Screensaver not working

    Default Gnome. Screensaver not working

    I can't make the gnome screensaver work.

    In "Setting" and "Power", the blank screen is on after 10 minutes; in "Tweaks" and "Power", "When Laptop Lid is Closed" is in bold, but not option is given, although "Don't suspend on lid close" is on.

    I couldn't find any screensaver and "gnome-screensaver" is not available for Leap 42.1

    Is there a way to activate the screensaver or leave a blank screen after 10 minutes of inactivity?

    Thanks!

    And what display manager (login screen) are you using?

    GNOME's screen saver/locker only works with GDM.

    gnome-screensaver is a thing of the past. It doesn't even exist in 13.2 any more...

    Fixed!

    I went to sysconfig editor, Desktop, Display manager, and DISPLAYMANAGER. I changed it from lightdm to gdm. Now the display dims and gets black after a few minutes.

    Now I'm learning the difference between lightdm, gdm, and the rest of dm.

    Thanks!
