Does anyone know here how to set up xscreensaver on Gnome on a per-machine basis? I'm running
'sonar' as my screensaver in ping mode, so that I can see straight away if any of our
machines/servers go down. Thing is, sonar has to be set suid to use this mode. I can do this on most
of my boxen, except for one machine where I don't have root. Unfortunately this machine is the
machine I normally use for email & web surfing (sunray network, 'bout all it's good for), and so is
the one most commonly open on my desktop. Unfortunately, without suid set sonar will crash when it
tries ping mode. Does anyone know of a way of having different screensavers running from the same
desktop settings on different machines? I was thinking of creating a few screensaver prefs files,
then having a script in my .bashrc that symlinks one of them to ~/.gnome/Screensaver depending on
hostname, but that might get messy when I have the desktop open on several machines simultaneously
(as I almost always do). Any ideas?
