And if you click OK ?

How many screens have you got attached ?

Is gnome-screensaver listed in your startup applications ?

Yes, it is. Should it not be?

gnome-screensaver interferes with xscreensaver

You can either stop it from loading by disabling it in startup applicactions .. then add xscreensaver to startup applicatons

or uninstall it, and add xscreensaver to startup applications.

Be aware xscreensaver must be installed BEFORE uninstalling gnome-screensaver.

If xscreensaver is now working because you uninstalled gnome-screensaver .. leave it as is.
(that entry in startup applications could probably be removed, but it won't hurt to leave it either .. untick it if you want)

Oh, and if you consider the topic solved.....
