Thanks for the info. As far as having the same screensaver, through the Control Center I can't get the GL Matrix screensaver, it's not listed in the GL screensavers. So, I had to select a different one. But if I go through System => Configuration => Screensaver, GL Matrix is listed and I can select it. Also, when I get the messaage saying that the Xscreensaver daemon is not active in display 0, it's confusing because if I check my dsiplay settings it says Display 1. So that's where I am getting a bit confused. But for now, I will activate the screensave daemon each time I need it. Hope you guys can figure this one out.
I run Granular Linux on my PC, but right now I run Mandriva 2008.1 on my laptop. I can activate the screensaver through right clicking on the desktop and select configure desktop from the menu. I then select the screensaver option and set it from there and it will work. Hope that little bit of info helps.
Appreciate the help. Keep up the good work. Granular Linux is a real nice distro. Looks very good. I also found the specs as far as what are the minimum requirements for Granular.. My mother in law has an older PC with Win98 on it and it's a real dog. Have to repeatedly fix it and clean viruses ans spyware off of it. Told her about Linux and looks as though I will show her Granular Linux and install that OS on her PC.
