The Gnome maintainer of gnome-screensaver, if I recall correctly, regards
making screen savers configurable as a proof that the screen saver is
"broken".

I think you might have just found one of the several ways that his
creation is, indeed, broken...

For what it's worth, on my laptop I simply removed the gnome screensaver,
installed xscreensaver , and lived happily ever after.

I won't say what I think of gnome-screensaver, because I prefer not to
contravene the Ubuntu Code of Conduct ;)
