Re: [K12OSN] screensavers

You can eliminate the screensavers for all users in one fell swoop by:

gedit /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver

Insert a hypen ("-") at the beginning of every line identifying the name of
a screensaver.  (They start on about line 143.  Search for "*programs:" just
above the first one.  Some are already hyphen'ed out by default.)  In
effect, this will default everyone to "no" screensavers.

Save and voila :-)

Hope this helps,
