>is any of you experiencing xscreensaver not working in a default (clean)
While I was running Xubuntu on my iMac, I did notice that I couldn't 
start Xfce from the command line unless I was root. The reason given was 
usually that xscreensaver wasn't working properly.

And yes, I realise that I shouldn't even have a root account in Xubuntu, 
but that was the problem I had. ;-)

Sorry I can't be more specific, the machine has since been wiped and had 
other distros installed.
