how to remove the screen saver on solaris box

Hi, Smilie

I have a Sun 3500 box with solaris 8 in it. I dont know who had installed the screen saver. every 5 minutes the screen saver comes up. Its annoying when we are working on the console. Can any one tell what i can do to remove the screen saver.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I dont find any .xscreensaver file in my home directory. And more over i have installed the OS on this machine, but still i find the screensaver coming up after a fresh installation. Do you have any other suggestions ?


Thanks

Are you running a CDE session? If so, you can open the style manager (which is one of the icon buttons on the right side of the bar at the bottom by default) and change it there. Once you open that you'll have a selection of managers to choose from. Choose the "screen" manager and screensaver settings are in there.

Hey friends,

i got what my problem is. I am running the box through a switch and the screen saver comes from the switch not the box, so i will not be able to remove the screen saver.

Thanks for all your help.
