Getting screensaver daemon running on boot?

How do you get the xscreensaver daemon running on boot?? I always have to enable it from the screensaver prefs when I want my screensavers to run.

Thanks in advance.

In your home folder find the hidden executable .elxstrt and add
xscreensaver -no-splash &

You can stick other stuff like
numlockx on &
/usr/bin/conky &

Okay, I found the app (actually, it's a shell script) and added the appropriate line, but it's still not working. Where is this script called at boot, anyway? I noticed that if I double-click on the shell script icon to run it, the "eeeeeelive" mp3 that's supposed to play at boot does play, which it normally does not do when i boot (since I upgraded e using the "tests" branch of the repos. So I guess that the script somehow isn't being called at boot on my system). So, how can I get the script to execute when it's supposed to do so?

Thanks,

SF

G'day there Beagle2,

But won't that just run it after login, not from boot?

Man xscreensaver provides an eplanation of how to do it with xdm as login manager, but Elive seems to be very different insofar as config files and what gets run when.

I have it running fine after login, but haven't yet figured out how to do it with entrance on screen.

See ya
