KDE Control Center-Screen Saver


In the KDE Control Center under the LookandFeel/ScreenSaver directory Im not getting a list of available screen savers in the ScreenSaver field. I went to the location where the screen savers are supposed to be located and there are a few there, so its not that I have no screen savers available. Wouldn't there be at least 1 by default in the distrobution anyway?

Well Slackware comes with .....xscreensaver-4.08-i386-1 and was installed by default...........
the directory it is in is /usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver
mine shows 173 screensavers, of course this includes the 18 RealSlick screensavers that I compiled myself..........RSS screensavers require 3D to be working in order to compile/install
