Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

RELEASE: Karmic Koala
CD/DVD VARIANT: 32bit and 64bit Xubuntu Alternate and Desktop
ISO BUILD: 20090628
SYMPTOMS: When I did a fresh install of Xubuntu Karmic, I discovered there is no way to set the screensaver preferences.

The .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/screensaver does not allow Xfce desktop environment to have a menu entry, thus Xubuntu has no menu entry to set preferences.

"OnlyShowIn=GNOME;" should be changed to "OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;" to allow the menu entry for Xubuntu.
