Very Frustrated with Installing Screensavers...


Recommended Posts

So, I've downloaded a couple sweet screensavers that I would love to get working. One is smoothslidesaver and the other is kcometen3.

 

I've done this so far:

 

./configure
make
*change to root using su*
make install
make clean

 

I look in my Desktop properties under screensaver, but neither one of them is there. I have also tried to just goto

xscreensaver-demo

in the terminal, but it's not listed there either.

 

Help! This is so very frustrating to me. I just want a screensaver!

Are you using fedora? .. if so yum install it rather than from source. it is likely that you installed it in /usr/local could be that KDE is expecting it in a different place. Also I believe there is a kscreensaver package which repacks the xscreensaver stuff (not sure about that).

 

try:

yum search screensaver

I'm actually using Suse 10.1 I should make that a little more clear each time I post something, but all of my info is in my sig.

 

Anyways, I'll look into that. Thank you very much for the reply. Where does KDE expect it anyways?
