I'm trying to write my own script, since the proposed one seems to be
incomplete (and to manage too much situations : for example, I'm not
using a laptop).

I've added it as a task executed every minute. The configuration file
for the screensaver is modified as expected. But the modification isn't
taken into account. I suppose I need to tell something to read again
the configuration file. The question is : who is "something" ? ;)

On the brainstorm page, the guy who proposed the script talks about
krunner. But it seems strange. And I don't know how to restart it
anyway (if it's possible !).

I'm going to explore the web about it, but if you have an idea... ;-)
