sudo apt-get install xscreensaver should get the basics.

I have not done this with apt, but I have done it with Synaptic on Ubuntu up through 11.04, which is when I abandoned Ubuntu. There are several other related xscreensaver packages, including xscreensaver-data, xscreensaver-gl, and so on. In Synaptic, gnome-screensaver would get automatically uninstalled.

You could go to Synaptic and check for installation:
xscreensaver
xscreensaver-gl
xscreensaver-gl-extra
xscreensaver-data
xscreensaver-data-extra
That will give you a huge set to play with!
