(1) All screensavers are missing. Usually I am used to seeing the following
(screenshot from another 3513 install):

but now when I look in kcontrol, all I get is Blank, None and Tux Screensaver.
What should I check to figure out why they are not loading? The only failure I

kdeinit: Got EXEC_NEW 'klipper' from launcher.
kdeinit: Got EXEC_NEW 'kpowersave' from launcher.
Failure: Module initialization failed
kdeinit: PID 2975 terminated.

Additionally, in kcontrol desktop icons, I can't find a checkbox to turn of
'System'. What does this 2-trash setup look like to you?
