[SOLVED] bouncing cow screensaver and others


The bouncing cow and pacman screensavers are no longer in Ubuntu since Dapper has came. I believed that was because gnome-screensaver replaced xscreensaver, however I installed xscreensaver and still have not been able to find my old favorite screensavers. Does anyone know how to get the old screensavers including the ones I mentioned?

On my FC5 box, the cow is part of xscreensavers. I have these packages installed.

xscreensaver-base-4.24-2
xscreensaver-gl-extras-4.24-2
xscreensaver-extras-4.24-2
