I'm running XFCE and Gnome3 and have some trouble with choosing a screensaver. Any advice on which screensaver to use and how to configure it?

AFAIK xscreensaver works, but I wonder if it's a better option?

Gnome-screensaver no longer have any configurable device so how do I use it?

Any other advice with screensaver under XFCE?

xscreensaver is the more easy for work with XFCE. –  J.F. Aug 16 '11 at 17:52
I use gnome-screensaver with Xfce because the login screen looks much better and also someone can leave a message. –  rozcietrzewiacz Aug 17 '11 at 15:21
