! XScreenSaver
! a screen saver and locker for the X window system
! by Jamie Zawinski
! version 5.43
! 01-Jul-2019
! See "man xscreensaver" for more info. The latest version is always
! available at
! These resources, when placed in the system-wide app-defaults directory
! (e.g., /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver) will provide the default
! settings for new users. However, if you have a ".xscreensaver" file in
! your home directory, the settings in that file take precedence.
! Don't hand this file to "xrdb" -- that isn't how app-defaults files work.
! Though app-defaults files have (mostly) the same syntax as your ~/.Xdefaults
! file, they are used differently, and if you run this file through xrdb,
! you will probably mess things up.
#error Do not run app-defaults files through xrdb!
#error That does not do what you might expect.
#error Put this file in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver instead.

! This is the URL loaded by the "Help" button on the splash screen,

! manualCommand -- how the "Documentation" buttons display man pages.
! And there are so very many options to choose from!
! Gnome 2.4, 2.6: (yelp can't display man pages, as of 2.6.3)
@GNOME24@*loadURL: @WITH_BROWSER@ '%s'
@GNOME24@*manualCommand: gnome-terminal --title '%s manual' \

! For 24 hour time:
! *dateFormat: %H:%M
! This command is executed by the "New Login" button on the lock dialog.
! (That button does not appear on the dialog if this program does not exist.)
! For Gnome: probably "gdmflexiserver -ls". KDE, probably "kdmctl reserve".
! Or maybe yet another wheel-reinvention, "lxdm -c USER_SWITCH".
! Oh wait, this wheel just keeps getting better: "dm-tool switch-to-greeter".
! Change these at your peril:
