Thank you for the reply, maybe you can help to solve the kscreensaver

Seriously?  Have you ever played Kolf?



Is it "works for me"?

acronyms and we do not understand :-)

The first two points are historical. But they did happen a few years ago.

No, no... The animation is OK for a long time, then the screen goes black,
and then the animation reappears frozen (I think this is the sequence, but I
am not sure 100 %). I think kscreensaver thinks that the monitor is switched
off but actually it is not...

Anyway, I am not the only one to see this problem, many people have noticed
it as well.

Compiz does not work for me at all, so I tried using the translucencies of
kwin. The screensaver does not auto start. If I manually lock the screen, it
works but after some minutes, the screensaver disappears.

I did: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148758

By the way, why this almost null activity in KDE bug tracking system? See,
eg, http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148654 and
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147293 . They remain unconfirmed. OK, I
do not know about fixing them, but they can be confirmed in 30 seconds... Is
it because developers are focusing in KDE 4? Is it because a little number
of developers?

Thank you again,
