Default KDE 4.0.4: No screensaver unless

You are luckier than I am - I have not had any screensavers available
in KDE4 including after the update!

How did you get to the screensaver control?
I went to kickoff->system settings->desktop-screen saver and no screen savers
appear to be available apart from the blank screen. I do have xscreensaver
installed. Did you do anything special to get a screensaver to become
available ?

kdeartwork and kdeartwork-extras contain most of the kde screensavers. Are
either of these installed on your system?

Going back to the original problem: screensaver not starting.
I've tried installing those 2 packages and it made no difference.
Before I used the "blank screen", now I've tried the "clock" and it starts only if I reapply in each
session of KDE.


I did not remember this issue in KDE 4.0.3.

Thanks Rex - in fact kdeartwork was installed, but kdeartwork-extras was not.
After installing the latter a whole raft of screensavers now are available
in the system-settings area. I was surprised this was not installed by default
during F9 install but anyway I can now play with it...

To me it did not make any difference.
Screensaver only starts after re applying it.

Any idea?
