Question Screensavers in Mandrake


Hey everyone, I'm trying to get some new screens savers to work in Mandrake. I think I found the dir where the others are. I downloaded one SS and it was an .exe file, so I tried to execute it, but it said..."No dukes, loser". Don't know what to do here or if I just got the wrong stuff. I tried executing it as a user and as root. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sounds like you got a screensaver intended for Windows. It won't work.

Poke around here:
