OS X :: Setting Screen - Saver As Desktop BG
So there's this great hidden feature of OS X that allows you to set your screen-saver animation as your desktop background, but it is a Terminal command and it requires Terminal to be running in order to continue executing it. Here it is: Code: System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background So the million-dollar question is → Does anybody know of a way to keep this running even after you quit Terminal? Yeah I know, it's a waste of CPU cycles and battery power... but my Mac is plenty fast and is a desktop machine so I'm not concerned about that. So how about a Terminal command to made the above Terminal command not require Terminal to be open in order to continue?

OS X :: Animated GIF As Desktop - Screen Saver?
I've got an animated GIF file that I'd like to use as my desktop wallpaper. I can't figure out how to set it up. If that isn't possible, how can I set it so the GIF file plays as my screen saver, as I've heard of applications that can use a screen saver as the desktop.

OS X :: Desktop / Screen Saver Preferences Pane Crashes - SOLVED
I'm having an issue with my iMac running 10.5.4. Whenever I try to select a screen saver System Preferences starts to beach ball, and then will crash. Sometimes I can get it to select the screen saver that I want, but then if I try to preview it, System Preferences beach balls, and then crashes. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

OS X :: Screen Saver System Preferences Pane Crashes To Desktop?
Has anyone else found that their screensaver system preferences pane crashes to the desktop when you try to access it? Ever since I upgraded to 10.5.6 I have had this problem. My screensaver is now just a black screen and I can't change it because the preference pane crashes everytime. Spaces, expose and dashboard seem to now only work when they want and its not very often. I have reinstalled 10.5.6 using the combo update to see if that fixes things but it doesnt. I have been send all the crash reports to Apple. This is REALLY getting me mad now! Im on a PMG5 dual 1.8. Never had any problems with it until 10.5.6 came along. I have an ATI X800XT could the update of the ATI stuff in 10.5.6 be causing all this crap? I am reluctant to do a clean install because it will take me days to get all my apps back and how I have them set up now plus I don't think it will make the slightest bit of difference as the combo update hasn't.

OS X Leopard :: Desktop And Screen Saver Icon In System Preferences Does Not Work At All
When i got my mac, (13" aluminum, 250gb, 2.4ghz,) I had no problem installing everything. The only problem that I found was that in system preferences, the desktop and screen saver icon wasn't there! I know how to easily change my wallpaper whenever I want, but I want to change my screen saver and I clearly couldn't get to that.

I re-installed Leopard 10.5.6 twice, the icon finally showed up, but it is disfigured and freezes whenever I click on it.

PS I bought my mac brand new from [URL], so I don't see why there should be any problems.

If someone knows how to fix this, PLEASE let me know, I'm running out of ideas.

OS X :: System Preferences Freezing Up When Selecting Desktop & Screen Saver
I am having a problem with System Preferences freezing up when selecting Desktop & Screen Saver. Everything else on the system works fine. I loaded a picture on the Macintosh HD Device (all other pictures are under a specific user account) to access it as a desktop background. The correct picture appears as the desktop background, but I want to change the picture. As soon as I select Desktop & Screen Saver under System Preferences the window freezes. The only way to unfreeze is to select something else on the Dock (which doesn't magnify as it normally does), then close that and go to back to System Preference and then close it. Or select something else from the dock and then Force Quit the Systems Preferences.

I will get an error message and the problem details (which I know VERY little about) show an Exception Type:

EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) and
Exception Code: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS
If that helps.

I tried sending the picture to the trash and then reloading it, but that didn't help either.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Desktop And Screen Saver Quit Unexpectedly?
Recently, after a clean install to Snow Leopard (from Lion). I can no longer open the desktop and screen saver preference pane. I click, it hangs, I click again, and the entire system preferences unexpectedly quits.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mystery Picture In "desktop & Screen Saver"
When I go to "desktop & screen saver" in System Prefs, I have a mystery picture I cannot get rid of and it has been passed from Mac to Mac, OS to OS. It says it's on my desktop with the other pics that I see on my desktop that are actually there. I click on the picture to get its name or location and I get this ".UserImagesWelcomeSecondaryIm". So I try to find this location...nothing. I try to spotlight this exact phrase, NOTHING. This picture has gotten unbelievably annoying because I can't locate the physical file to delete it. I believe it may have been an image that was dragged off a browser onto the desktop.

Intel Mac :: "Preferences Error: Could Not Load Desktop & Screen Saver Preference Pane"
I just install Lion 10.7 from scratch using a bootable DVD I made from the Install Mac OS X Install ESD Dmg found within the app.  After restoring my accounts and data from a time machine backup, everything seems to work fine except for 3 preference panes within the System Preferences, (Desktop & Screen Saver, Energy Saver, and Spotlight.)  I've tried reinstalling Lion over the current installation, I've tried reinstalling the latest combo update, I've trying repairing disk permissions, I've tried installing System Preferences app as well as each individual .prefpane, none of which worked.  When trying to run the preference pane I get: 

"Preferences Error.  Could not load Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane."  Replace Desktop & Screensaver part with Energy Saver and Spotlight respectively for each pane. When I run the preference pane, here is the output from the console: 

3/19/12 6:13:04.765 PM System Preferences: [NSPrefPaneBundle instantiatePrefPaneObject] (/System/Library/PreferencePanes/DesktopScreenEffectsPref.prefPane): principalClass is nil. 

All three give the same error, again replacing DesktopScreenEffectsPref.prefpane with the corresponding pane.

Aperture :: Aperture Only Showing A Few Pictures / Setting Desktop Background Using Aperture Library

Does anyone know how to fix this or reset Desktop Preferences?

OS X Leopard :: Screen Sharing - Login Screen And/or Go To Screen Saver Mode
When I use Remote Desktop Connection to connect from one Windows machine to another, I am able to select a user I want to connect to; and when I login, the machine I connect to goes to the Windows login screen and eventually goes to screen saver mode.

Does the imac offer the same functions?

I'm currently using Tight VNC to connect from Windows to the imac. I don't like how it shows what I'm doing on the imac screen. I rather it go the to login screen and/or go to screen saver mode. I also would like for it to connect to one user, so that when I'm using the Screen Sharing, someone else can still be on the imac.

MacBook Pro :: 15" MBP Screen Has Blue Tinge After Wake Up From Screen Saver?
I've had a recent problem with having a blue tinge to my laptop display after wake up from the screen saver. The screen saver is the iTunes cover art. When the screen saver is active and I clear it (mouse movement or keyboard), I get my login screen. After entering my password, the screen turns a blue shade. Does anyone else have this problem or know of a solution. I'm currently running Leopard 10.5.8 with all software updates on a late 2008 15" MBP.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: No Login Dialogue(blank Screen)after Screen Saver Password Required
I have a Mac Pro running leopard server (10.5.8). I have it setup to require a password after the screensaver comes on. The problem is that sometimes when I wake the monitor(just the monitor, the computer is not setup to sleep) there is no login dialogue. There is just a blank screen. I can see and move the mouse but that's it. The machine is primarily used as for Filemaker Server and as an Apple File server. None of these operations are interrupted but I can't actually use the computer, I need to restart to login again.

MacBook :: Screen Color Settings Change After Screen Saver?
so this has happened twice now in the past month, my mb is in screen saver mode and i wake it up to find that the color is off in the screen. meaning that the color settings changed and the screen has a swashed out blue tint to it. first time i restarted and all was good, second time i clicked on the preferences icon and then the screen went back to its normal setting. my normal setting is not the factory one but one of the ones that people said makes the screen look better.

so what gives, is the integrated chip dieing on me?

OS X :: Monitor Wake Up With Screen Saver Image On Screen
I have a Quad Core Mac Pro running Snow Leopard 10.6.4. I've been having this issue for the past couple of weeks. Basically I have my monitor set to turn off after after 15 minutes of inactivity, my Mac Pro is always on. After 5 minutes of inactivity my screensaver comes on and stays on until my monitor turns off. When I move my mouse to wake my monitor, sometimes an image from the screensaver appears onscreen for a few seconds and then disappears when my desktop appears.

I have repaired Permissions, rebuilt my drive using Disk Warrior, installed the 10.6.4 Combo update but the issue remains. An image from the screensaver doesn't always appear when I turn on my monitor, this issue is sort of random. Usually my desktop appears right away with no static image from the screensaver.

OS X Leopard :: Blank Screen After Screen Saver?
I have a MacBook Pro with an external VGA monitor connected - desktop not shared (i.e. different desktop regions on both screens).All is fine until the screen saver kicks in. When I wake the machine up again, only the external monitor shows an image - the laptop screen remains blank.If I use Screen Sharing from another Mac, I can see what is on the laptop screen - and interact with all the applications there exactly as expected - but the screen remains stubbornly blank.Is there a way to force redrawing of the screen/nudge the Mac to start using the laptop screen again (or better still a fix to stop the problem happening in the first place?)

OS X :: Screen Saver Not Activating?
This is really annoying me. What could cause my screen saver to not activate?I've got it set to activate after 3 minutes. I just can't think of a reason why it's not working. I've just reinstalled Leopard (not because of this) and I had the same problem before.I did wonder if the iStat menu's were keeping the screen saver from kicking in (it monitors my CPU and memory uses so is changing constantly) but I tried uninstalling it and it continues to 'diss me'!
