I am using KDE 3.0.3-14 (that came with Redhat 8.0). After a few weeks
of work and light customization, the screensaver stopped working. It
does not start either after the timeout or from the "Lock screen"
button, even though I can test the screensavers from the control center.
I poked around in the .kde directory and found that there is a
[ScreenSaver] section in kcmdisplayrc and kdesktoprc. I deleted that
section hoping that it would somehow reset the situation and then
configured the screensaver once again. No good - the [ScreenSaver]
section appeared in kdesktoprc, but the actual screensaver still does
How would I debug this further?
