xscreensaver is NOT automatically starting as F14

what file do I change?

locate xinitrc
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/00-start-message-bus.sh
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/50-xinput.sh
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/localuser.sh
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/xdg-user-dirs.sh
/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc

/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc already contains:

# Launch xscreensaver (if available), but only as non-root user
if test $UID -gt 0 -a -z "$VNCSESSION"; then
if test x"`which xscreensaver 2>/dev/null`" != x""; then
xscreensaver -no-splash &
elif test x"`which gnome-screensaver 2>/dev/null`" != x""; then
gnome-screensaver &
fi
fi

I use kde on Fedora 14

I respect "X" windowing and video drivers as a deep career
