Bug Description

I am using 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS installed on a Lenovo T510 laptop via the 14.04.1 Ubuntu Server install with KDE via the kubuntu-full package. The science screen saver from package kscreensaver 4:4.13.3-0ubuntu0.1 does not function.

Expected behavior is to show the desktop with distortions when the screen saver activates or the screen is locked. Instead when the screen is locked or the screen saver is activated, behavior is to activate the simple locker and distort that screen.

Executing /usr/bin/kscience.kss directly results in a small window that shows a screen capture of the top left of my desktop with distortions running there.

The problem is the same on a separate laptop with different hardware and 64 bit Kubuntu 14.04 installed via the Kubuntu install and then upgraded to 14.04.1.
