#simple X screensaver

A simple screensaver inspired by xssstate1.


  • libX11
  • libXScrnSaver


Configuration is done through 'config.h'. You will need to set the program to be run when the screensaver is activated. It doesn't need to be the full path, but it must be in your PATH variable if that's the case.

After editing config.h, compile and install.

$ make
$ make install


sxss doesn't accept any arguments. You can simply add it to your '.xinitrc' (or what have you) the following line.

sxss &

You can change the idle screen duration with xset(1).

$ xset s SECOND
$ xset s 300
