I have installed Xscreensave using the command in Lubuntu 14.04.

 sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-data-extra xscreensaver-gl-extra

After installing, when I try to launch the screensaver , My system automatically Hangs. Input devices are not working. I need to power OFF and On the system to reboot. Please help me to fix the issue.

The issue should be fixed in Lubuntu 14.04 (LTS)

I've also experienced system hangs after trying to preview some gl screensavers - may be it's also your case? Try to uninstall xscreensaver-gl-extra and try again... –  FlasH from Ru Mar 18 at 20:33
