[SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

I tried doing a system upgrade today and noticed I had broken dependencies because of a screen saver. I decided to uninstall gnome-screensaver manually, it said that gnome-shell depended on it, now cinnamon absolutely depends on cinnamon-screensaver.

In my opinion, the screen saver should be an optional dependency.

I don't know how different they are, but can't they provide each other?

That would be the most sane solution.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

Well, I never use gnome-screensaver, and I prefer to keep cinnamon as an option in gdm.
I have done:   sudo pacman -Rdd gnome-screensaver

and gnome-screensaver has disappeared.

sudo pacman -Syu

and the system is upgraded with the new version of cinnamon and without deleting gnome-shell

Seems to me that the issue is solved. cinnamon-screensaver is now an optional dependency.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

I've had same problem and as a temporary solution i've ignored cinnamon-screensaver via pacman.conf and update my system. Here is my pacman.log
I realize now, my screensaver doesnt work now. I click on the button but nothing happens also I couldnt install cinnamon-screensaver coz gnome-shell depends on the gnome-screensaver. Is there any solution for this problem.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

I think you should open a new thread for this problem, because its a different one.

But maybe this helps:
1. start gnome-session-properties
2. add entry for the 'gnome-screensaver'


Probably the last man who knew how it worked had been tortured to death years before.
Or as soon as it was installed. Killing the creator was a traditional method of patent protection.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

Hi I think it is related to this topic coz as @ticpu said that they cant handle each others screensavers. Here is temporary solution:

sudo pacman -Rdd gnome-screensaver
sudo pacman -S cinnamon-screensaver

I've tested on both desktops (gnome & cinnamon) and screensavers are working well eventhough I've uninstalled gnome-screensaver.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

The problem ticpu descriped is solved, because "cinnamon" doesn't depend on "cinnamon-screensaver" anymore.
But gnome-shell does depend on "gnome-screensaver".
So if you remove "gnome-screensaver" you have a missing dependency on your system.

I use cinnamon and gnome-shell with gnome-screensaver without problem and without missing dependency.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

Maybe it doesnt depend on cinnamon-screensaver but cinnamon-screensaver is still in conflict with gnome-screensaver.

sudo pacman -U gnome-screensaver-3.6.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
:: gnome-screensaver and cinnamon-screensaver are in conflict. Remove cinnamon-screensaver? [y/N] n
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: gnome-screensaver and cinnamon-screensaver are in conflict

This is not good.

I dont know what happend in the background but as you see above when I was updating my system in this morning, pacman removed some packages and installed or upgraded the others. Then I realized my screensaver didnt work anymore when I was using cinnamon. I didnt do any special things, changing any conf files or remove anything else. It's annoying situation coz I'm working in crowded office and dont like to left my laptop with unlock screen. That's why I want to chance to install cinnamon-screensaver by removing gnome-screensaver. Yes, it's a little bit weird but it has worked and now screensavers are working well  on both desktops (gnome & cinnamon) eventhough I've uninstalled gnome-screensaver which is needed by gnome-shell.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome-shell + cinnamon can't handle each others screensavers

Here is why screensaver are working well on both gnome & cinnamon

sudo pacman -Ql | grep "gnome-screensaver"
cinnamon-screensaver /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver
cinnamon-screensaver /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/__init__.py
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/__init__.pyc
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/__init__.pyo
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/script.py
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/script.pyc
orca /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/orca/scripts/apps/gnome-screensaver-dialog/script.pyo

As you see above all the binary files supplied by gnome-screensavers are also provided by cinnamon-screensavers. I think it explains why there is a conflict with each others.
