xscreensaver


Ok, so I want to get xscreensaver running.

I did a search, but the things that turned up, make little or no sense to a nugget like me, So

after downloading and installing the mandrake rpm of xscreensaver, How do I get it running please ?

regards

John

you can configure the program by

$ xscreensaver-demo

which will provide you with the options.
