No screensavers


I copied some xscreensavers into the screensavers folder which is in usr/applications/screensavers. Now when I go to my screensaver application, they don't show up at all. What should I do?

I am running Ubuntu 10.10

Hi

I haven't upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 yet.
On Ubuntu 10.04 the screen-savers are in /usr/share/applications/screensavers
Has it changed on 10.10?

On my 10.10 box, it is also /usr/share/applications/screensavers.
