Screensaver in Xubuntu 15.10

Till 13.10 Xubuntu uses XScreenSaver as screensaver. In the rare case you installed xfce manually you may want to use

 sudo apt-get install xfce4-settings 

from the universe package to be able to use the settings manager.

In Xubuntu 14.04 onwards light-locker is default and pre-installed.

Light-locker and xscreensaver – to have both is not a good idea see BUG 1304128.

I personally prefer xscreensaver:

# apt-get remove light-locker
# apt-get install xscreensaver xfishtank xdaliclock

Which looks like this …
xfce-xscreensaver

Have Fun!
