I need to deploy some custom screensaver settings onto a few Ubuntu systems that I manage through puppet configuration management tool.

I was thinking of making a custom .xscreensaver file and pushing it onto these machines.

However, even after installing xscreensaver and running "xscreensaver-demo" and "xscreensaver-command", there is no .xscreensaver file in home directory.

Could someone kindly help me out on this or share a sample .xscreensaver file so that I can edit it?
