Does ~/.xscreensaver get created?

How is xscreensaver loaded after a reboot?

I log in windowmaker and there is ~/.xscreensaver file (see attachment). 

Xscreensaver doesn't start automatically. I may start it from Applications -> Tools -> Screensaver (there is warning about deamon not running (see another attachment) or just Run -> xscreensaver

@spturtle, should WindowMaker start xscreensaver when it's available?

Yes it's still here.

Recent updates.

I installed WindowMaker on a top of GNOME installation. Xsreensaver was installed as well.

After reboot (login to WindowMaker), gnome-screensaver is running "undergruond" (not visible), I have to stop it anyway (demon?) and start xscreensaver after that.

This bug was filed against cauldron, but we do not have cauldron at the moment.

Please report whether this bug is still valid for Mageia 2.

Thanks :)
