I've got a specific problem, but I think it could be generalized. There is a Debian squeeze system with fluxbox on an ASUS laptop. The xscreensaver is installed, but the daemon doesn't run. Well, I set the darkening delay to 1:00:00 (H:MM:SS) in the $HOME/.xscreensaver, and all the settings are well set (behold the daemon doesn't run!).
But the screen becomes darkened (exactly, to total black) in 10 minutes when no user action is occurring. No matter vlc or anything runs, the darkening happens. Restarting the X doesn't solve this problem.
Where can I get rid of this? Is this a cross-distro issue? At all, I don't think it is a bug, in that case somebody might explored it yet.
