Good Day All . . .

How would I disable the KDE 3.5.3 screensaver at the beginning of a bash script and then at the end enable the screensaver.

I have a file access conflict with a backup script accessing the screensaver's random image directory at the same time as the screensaver (best guess). When it happens, it is an absolute total lockup with a hard reboot the ONLY remedy.

I have the same type of issue with xscreensaver but that is somewhere else . . .

Any help?
