Hamster doesn't detect when computer has gone idle (XFCE) #47

Hamster happily counts away until stopped manually and never pauses when computer is idle (or even goes into suspend mode!).

I'm pretty sure I had this working fine back in gnome and unity, but I'm currently using xfce.
Does it depend on something gnome-specific?

right now it depends on the gnome-screensaver to send the signals


XFCE uses xscreensaver. I can look into how easy it would be to look for that and use it in case gnome-screensaver is not running.

Are there any chance to xscreensaver under XFCE get support?
