Do you have a startup script for the BOINC client on Linux?
There are two common ways to have BOINC automatically start on a Linux system. The first will start BOINC when you log in to your Linux system. This involves placing code into your shell resource file (such as .bashrc). The second will start BOINC when the system is started.

Why does the Linux version not have a screensaver?

I have installed the recommend version of the BOINC client for Linux, but I cannot get it to run. What should I do?
Which version of the Linux client you should use depends highly on the libraries that you have installed on your machine. The recommended version is what you should try first. However, if this does not work, then you should try one of the 'compatible' builds. You may find these here. The compatible builds are command line only.
