Angry KDE 3.3.1 Killed Most of the Screensavers


After upgrading from KDE 3.2 to 3.3.1 on Suse Linux 9.1 Personal most of the KDE screensavers no longer work. I just get a black screen when trying to use them. I'm not sure of the exact cause of this, but any help in fixing it would be appreciated.

Hello from Santiago de Chile! (spanish user)

I upgrade KDE 3.1.10 to 3.3.1 compiling sources and all was OK.

My system is RedHat Linux 9.0. How you upgrade your system ?. Compiling or gettings binaries ?

Cheers!

Bye!

For the folks who have upgraded and realized that many of the screensavers no longer worked there is a simple fix.

In a terminal, as root, type the following two commands:

Code:
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver /usr/lib


ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xscreensaver/config/ /etc/xscreensaver
enjoy,
-myk
