    Hello and welcome here.

    As a screensaver is mostly used in a GUI interface, pleas tell us which desktop environment you use. KDE, Gnome, .....?

    Yes, it doesn't show up in the application menu in KDE/Plasma, GNOME, or MATE, if that's what you mean.

    Try typing "xscreensaver-demo" into an xterm (or konsole, gnome-terminal, whatever other terminal emulator you may have installed).

    You can not open many Prgramms as root.
    f.e.:

    Code:
    linux64:/home/ich # dolphin 
    QStandardPaths: wrong ownership on runtime directory /run/user/1000, 1000 instead of 0
    "Session bus not found\nTo circumvent this problem try the following command (with Linux and bash)\nexport $(dbus-launch)"
    linux64:/home/ich #
    But you can do it with kdesu, gnomesu, xdg-su as User:
    Code:
    ich@linux64:~> kdesu dolphin

    linux-91rn:/home/jibel # kdesu thunar
    You try as root to open kdesu.
    I have written:
    But you can do it with kdesu, gnomesu, xdg-su as User:
    Do you switch in the Terminal to root or do you login as root into your Desktop.
    Last is not recommended.
