I have a new install of Lubuntu on an old compaq 6510b laptop. Screensaver does not activate. Xfce power management is set to blank after 10 minutes. Xscreensaver is set to blank after 3 minutes. Is there something else to consider?

  • If I enter the Screensaver Preferences on my Lubuntu 18.04 LTS box, I get a warning that "Xscreensaver daemon doesn't seem to be running on display ... Launch it now?" It's possible that you're deamon isn't running too. I was going to suggest though to ensure you have the mode not set to "Disable Screen Saver" – guiverc Nov 27 at 4:47
