Subject: screensaver weirdness

Running dapper, I have set a screensaver by using:
  K | System Settings | Desktop | Screen Saver
All the previews and tests seem to work fine, but when the screensaver
is supposed to be invoked for real, instead I just get a large X logo
on my screen.

What else do I need to do in order for my selected screensaver to work?

Hello! I found some time ago useful trip (don't remember from where)
Try add following line to /home/user/.kde/share/kdesktoprc after screensaver section: DPMS-dependent=false
It's work for me
