GLslideshow screensaver configuration

How do you configure the GLslideshow screensaver in KDE? It claims you should be able to click on the advanced tab and select a folder where you store the images you want to run in the slideshow, but this tab apparently doesnt exist.

I tried the regular slide show screensaver, and i can configure it fine and select my photo directory, but not with the GLslideshow..

Please advise...

The 'Advanced' tab you need is on the Xscreensaver settings ... NOT the settings for GLSlideshow itself.

I, myself, have a problem with the TimeTunnel screensaver described here.
