SreenSavers in Peppermint (SOLVED)
« on: February 10, 2020, 05:42:49 pm »
Hello All...
I'm new to peppermint, coming over from Lubuntu 18.04
I can't find any where to apply or turn on a screensaver.
Can someone tell me how to do this?
Does Peppermint come with screensavers?

Thanks

No screensaver with Peppermint.

You can install xscreensaver though if you wish.

Settings>>Software Manager

search for "xscreensaver"(no quotes).

Hi hawghaven,

Another way to install the xscreensaver is to use the terminal commands as follows:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver
