Adding screen savers from (xscreensaver) to xfce-screensaver

Fedora 30, XFCE (not a spin, I $ sudo dnf groupinstall -y "Xfce Desktop", gnome 3 was slow). Basically, everything works fines without problems, power manager turns off screen after set time, like it should be. Except I want screen savers.

I installed xscreensaver, latest. Works fine. But when I use xscreensaver XFCE power manager does not work.

How to add screen savers from xscreensaver folder to XFCE screen saver??

Thus far I've tried this, and it does not work.

# cp /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/<screen_saver> /usr/libexec/xfce4-screensaver/<screen_saver>

Has no effect.

What to do?

At least in Ubuntu there are packages whose names begin with "xscreensaver-"; they contain xscreensaver hacks that xfce4-screensaver can find and use, too. What do you mean when you say that XFCE power manager does not work when you use xscreensaver?
