After the upgrade to trusty my screensaver stopped working. Gnome screensaver's settings tell it to start only on Gnome sessions (OnlyShowIn=GNOME and AutostartCondition=GNOME3 unless-session gnome in autostart/gnome-screensaver.desktop).

I configure it in the Brightness & Lock settings dialog but it doesn't work. I can only lock the screen manually via Ctrl-Alt-L.

Am i missing something?

Thanks in advance.


Remove line:

AutostartCondition=GNOME3 unless-session gnome

from gnome-screensaver.desktop. It fixes this issue for me.
