Activating xscreensaver service
Omarine designed the xscreensaver service to allow users to easily run or stop running screensaver and lock screen xscreensaver. If it is the first time, enable and start the service as follows:
systemctl --user enable xscreensaver
systemctl --user start xscreensaver
You need to make sure to turn off the screen blanking and screen locking of the desktop environment. For Xfce, go to
Applications → Settings → Session and Startup → Saved Sessions, then click
Clear Saved Sessions to delete saved sessions
